Keep Important Information Organized

Using 2houses to Keep Important Information Organized for Co-Parenting

Organization is important for parents. They need to know when they have to be somewhere, need to have access to important information about their kids and they have to juggle the lives of their children, along with all their activities, with an ease that doesn’t interfere with their work. It can seem like they are doing it easily; however, when you add that co-parents are doing this between two houses, custody arrangements and a host of other obstacles, it is amazing just how much organization is needed.

Getting Help with the Organization

So how do successful co-parents keep up with the organization of important information? They have help, of course. Sure, family and friends can help. Partners if you are part of a blended family help as well. But the best help that co-parents can have been to use a mediation and organization app or online tool.

There are plenty out there to choose from and as technology becomes a more popular tool for organization, I am sure there are going to be dozens more on the market. However, the one that really stands out on its own is the 2houses app.

What is 2houses?

2houses is an online digital platform and app that helps co-parents be successful in their relationship as co-parents. It offers a wide range of features that include a calendar, budget tracker, journal, albums and more. It is set up and designed to keep your life organized so you can focus on time with your kids and not on the logistics of your co-parenting arrangement.

So now that we know what 2houses is, let’s look at how 2houses can keep important information organized for co-parenting.

2houses Keeps Emergency Information Accessible

First, 2houses allows parents to store the information of contacts, doctors, schools and so on…anyone who they may need to contact about the kids. This can be shared with both parents and can make life easy when you are dealing with an emergency or simply plan a playdate for the kids.

In addition to contact numbers, you can have other information such as insurance, if your kids have special medications, they are on in the event they go to the hospital, blood type of your kids and so on. Having quick access to this information can be life saving in the event of an emergency. And it definitely gives you the peace of mind when there is no emergency but your kids are with the other parent since they have access to all the same information.

2houses Allows You To Store Court Documents

As you know, with divorce comes a lot of paperwork. And there seems to be even more paperwork when there are children, co-parenting arrangements, child support payments and everything else that’s involved in a divorce when you have kids. It can become really overwhelming at times and many co-parents find it difficult to access the information if it is sitting at home in a filing cabinet.

One option that many choose to do is to take advantage of the albums for documents. You can scan in all of your documents (or download them if they were sent to you electronically) and store them on the app.

Then, if you need to search something up in the documents, you can look at them regardless of where you are. And with both co-parents looking at the same files, there is less likely for there to be any confusion if you need to discuss something about the legalities of your arrangement.

2houses Makes Programming in Visitation Agreements Easy

As you know, 2houses has a calendar as a main part of the app, which helps you keep everything organized between two houses. You can plan out who is going to what events, or activities and you can colour code it to make it that much easier to navigate.

Another excellent feature with the calendar is that you can load in your custody agreement and set up where the kids go as per the arrangement, such as 50/50 or 60/40, etc. You can also punch in the time and location of handoffs so that you are extra organized on those days when the kids switch from one house to the other.

If you need to make changes to the days, you can easily send a request through the app and the other co-parent can agree or disagree with the change.

Really, the ease that you can build the calendar is one of the best features because it isn’t frustrating, you can do all of the dates at once without having to program each individual week for those reoccurring events and you can add other people to the calendar, such as extended family, so they know when they are helping you both as co-parents.

2houses Tracks Budgets

Finally, 2houses has an excellent feature that allows you to track the budgets as it concerns the kids. You can mark how much was paid for child support, as well as mark the expenses that go beyond child support. This helps you keep track of what has been paid toward those expenses and what needs to be paid out for anything that is shared.

Another wonderful way to stay organized with the budget is that you can make monthly statements which you can print or save to your own personal files. This is a terrific way to stay organized for tax season. And it allows you to keep documents in case you ever need them in court, which, hopefully, you won’t.

2houses really is the app that helps co-parents organize their co-parenting relationship, lives and information so it is easy to access and right there at the tip of your fingers no matter where you are.

So what are you waiting for, download the app today and get organized.
