About this app

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.

Pretty terrible app. Right now it tells me my version is not supported, but it won't let me update in the play store, it tells me I need to "open a web browser instead" but there is no link to upgrade, even on the web version of taking parents. Separately, the video calls are very glitchy, drop frequently. The text message function is also poor. Simple things like capitalizing the first word of a new sentence, the app doesn't do. Definitely not worth the $24.95 per month.

This makes communicating so hard between parents. Instead of just being able to have a quick conversation and be done, this drags out what could have been a two minute phone call into an all-day texting affair. The parents in the agreement should be able to set precedence on whether to use an app like this or not. Have conversations recorded for all intents and purposes if needed, but forcing communication via text is just wrong.

Update as of 11/29/2022 - still none of these changes. Developer suggestions: To set the record straight, I'm not giving a bad review because I'm divorcing. I'm leaving a bad review because there are features that are missing that if added, this would most definitely be a five-star app. Those are two features in particular: 1) after a period a new sentence needs to be capitalized. 2) messages need to save drafts. I typed way too long a message that was lost because I left the app and came back.
