In high-conflict situations - especially those involving domestic violence or vitriolic communication - courts can order parents to communicate exclusively through our free service. Parents do not need each other's telephone numbers, email addresses, or any other actual contact information to communicate through TalkingParents.com.
In situations where parents get along well enough to discuss matters in person or over the phone, courts can simply require that any agreements reached elsewhere be clarified, verified, and documented through TalkingParents.com.
It only takes about a minute to complete our simple sign-up form. And don't worry, we do not collect any sensitive information and we do not share your email address with the other parent. Once both parents sign up, our system matches them together and activates both accounts. Parents are notified via email when this happens. Parents can then sign in and begin communicating through our service. TalkingParents.com is designed to provide the same high-quality user experience on any phone, tablet, or full-size computer.
Start a Conversation
Using TalkingParents.com is easy. Just sign in and start communicating. Create a new conversation for discussion at any time by clicking the New Conversation button. Parents can also attach up to five files to each message. While the files themselves do not become part of the record, the details of each upload and download are thoroughly documented. And remember, once a parent posts a message there is no way for them to change or delete what they said. All any parent can do is add to the record.
View Your Messages
When a parent signs in they are taken directly to the My Conversations section. Parents can either create a new conversation or reply to a message from the other parent. Any time a parent posts a new message, the other parent will receive an email notifying them that they have a new message to view. Also, when a parent signs in, they will be notified at the top of the page when they have a new message to view. Conversations containing a new message are at the top and marked with a red icon until they are viewed.
