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.

The app works well for messaging, phone quality has even gotten better. I updated to 1 star, because of how many times the app crashed when I was trying to reply to one message, and the fact that the phone call membership price is now $25 when I thought it was $15 before? Maybe I'm wrong, either way, this app sucks, don't use it if you can avoid it. You'd be paying $25 for a Gen 2 iPhone simulator, except this one you have to login into everytime you want to use it, and it crashes even more.

Useful, simple, efficient. The app itself is best if both parents have purchased a plan (subscription) for the app. Without the subscription, the app functions just fine but you will instead receive notifications with an email rather than an app notification and if you do not check your emails often, which many do not, you can miss notifications and any vital information you may need to hear. Overall, the app is well articulated for keeping log. Practice safe co-parenting, folks.

It's unfortunate to hear you have not had a positive experience with our service. We do have an option to upgrade your subscription so you can utilize our app to avoid unwanted ads. If you are experiencing an issue with our service, please contact us at, and we can further investigate.

This app sucks, it is janky, everytime I open it it asks me to accept the terms and conditions but below the title it is blank and the confirm option doesn't do anything as it is greyed out. Furthermore, even after turning on biometrics it asks if I want to turn it on again. Furthermore the app is free but you can't do anything on it unless you pay for the service. Totally lame and creates unnecessary steps in order to communicate.

We've recently updated our Terms of Service. Once you've scrolled through, you will be able to accept them and enter your account. We offer three different plans, including a free one accessible through the website, so all parents can use our service. If you're experiencing issues with biometrics or other features, please email us.
