TalkingParents is the best co-parenting communication app for families no matter the situation. Parents who are divorced, separated, or were never legally married use the TalkingParents app to communicate regarding their children. Whether your co-parenting relationship is peaceful or high conflict, our co-parenting tools make joint custody easier to navigate, while keeping all communications unalterable.

TalkingParents is the most all-inclusive co-parenting solution on the market today. We are the only shared parenting app that offers messaging, recorded phone and video calls, a shared calendar, and payments in one complete service.

SECURE MESSAGING: co-parents can send timestamped, unalterable messages to each other, allowing them to see when each message was sent or viewed.

ACCOUNTABLE CALLING: co-parents can make recorded video or phone calls, all without disclosing their phone numbers to each other.

SHARED CALENDAR: co-parents can manage custody schedules and coordinate appointments, staying in sync and avoiding conflict.

ACCOUNTABLE PAYMENTS: co-parents can keep track of all shared parenting expenses, easily making payment requests and securely sending or receiving money.

TalkingParents offers the most accessible, straightforward, and user-friendly Records system to co-parents. With TalkingParents, co-parents do not have to contact support or dig for information about obtaining a certified copy of their records for court, as they do with many other co-parenting services.

UNALTERABLE RECORDS is a standalone feature that allows co-parents to request Electronically Certified PDF Records right from within the app or they can request Printed Records from the website. Our Records simplify legal proceedings for attorneys as well, making the evidence gathering process easy and streamlined.

TalkingParents offers a Free, Standard, and Premium Plan, allowing parents of all financial standings to use our co-parenting service. Co-parents looking for affordable, cutting-edge shared parenting tools have come to the right place, as we have already helped over half a million families find support and peace-of-mind. Join the TalkingParents community today so we can help you focus on what matters most—raising your children.

Love being able to have a conversation with my ex and be able to have proof of what all was said to where it is not only easily accessible, but also admissible in court. Love the fact that none of the messages can be deleted or edited. It time stamps when you or they posted comments then time stamps when the other read it. So there is no saying that you never told me this or I never got that message.

The calendar is amazing also. Not only to be able to keep up with appointments for the kids, but it time stamps everything as well. So now when my ex adds that doctors appt the night before I can now provide proof that they aren’t giving me enough heads up to be able to attend the appt.

Only thing I would change is when requesting a record, I don’t always need every single conversation. Maybe just the first and third threads that were posted in. Also the calendar you shouldn’t be able to delete events. Instead just edit them saying cancelled or something like that.

I have messed with the journal part of it as of yet. But I’ve only been fully using it for a little over a week.

Highly recommend this for anyone who has gone through separation that involves children. Just so that you can always protect yourself.

Great app

I wish there was a way to limit the use of the person by telephone number instead of email. My sons father let his girlfriend download the app on her cellphone and now they both harass me. I never know who I’m talking to. Some days it’s her and some days it’s him. But they are both always attacking me. It’s mentally exhausting. I’ve stopped checking my messages, and he’s accused me with the court of ignoring him. So now that I have proof that the girlfriend has the app on her phone, I’ve notified the court so they know why I’ve chosen to ignore their constant harassment and why I’ve chosen my mental health over their constant arguments and fights with me. I don’t know what to do now as far as communication goes since I cannot tell who is reaching out to me. I get anxiety attacks just seeing the notifications. Amazing that people can find anything to use as a weapon to harass and disturb your mental health. Until there’s a way for the girlfriend to be blocked, I will not be using any of these apps but this app was great and I have nothing but great things to say about it. So thank you to the developers. Hope you can fix it to make it be allowed one phone number downloadable rather than email. Thank you

Ruined by high prices and one little punctuation mark

Anyone who uses this app is probably not doing so by their own choice. They are most likely ordered to do so through the court system.
I understand charging for premium services, and I am aware that you can login in your browser and use the service for free. However, I have seen the prices skyrocket over the past five years that I’ve been using the app, and other than some useless “premium” features, there’s really no reason to do so. They have a captive audience, they know it, and they stand to make double the amount of money because there’s two people that are forced to use this app if they want any sort of record to take back to court.
The other extremely frustrating feature of this app is that whenever you get a new notification, it says “New Message!”with an exclamation point. I don’t know about you, but I’m not excited to get a new message from my coparent, as it usually is something negative. If anything, can you please remove the stupid exclamation point!!!!!!!!!!!

Developer Response ,

We really appreciate this feedback. We will communicate your suggestion to remove the exclamation point from the New Message notification to our team. We strive to meet parents where they are in their co-parenting journey; this is why we offer three different plans. Our Premium Plan allows parents to initiate a recorded phone or video call to their co-parent. However, the parent does not need to be upgraded to the Premium Plan as well to receive the call. They can be on the Standard Plan to receive recorded video calls. Parents on the Free Plan and the Standard Plans can receive phone calls. If you would like any information on what the different plans offer, please visit
