TalkingParents is the most all-inclusive co-parenting service on the market

TalkingParents is the only shared parenting platform that provides messaging, recorded and transcribed phone and video calls, a Shared Calendar, and payments in one complete service. Our top competitors either do not offer calling capabilities at all, or calls are not recorded and transcribed.

TalkingParents offers the most accessible, straightforward, and user-friendly Records system. Unalterable Records is a standalone feature that allows you to request Electronically Certified PDF Records from right within the app, or you can request Printed Records straight from the website. With our service, you do not have to contact support or dig for information about obtaining a certified copy of your Records as you do with several of our top competitors.

TalkingParents is run by real co-parents, a family law attorney, and software engineering experts. With our team’s combined knowledge and experience spanning shared parenting, family law, and technology, we have created the optimal co-parenting platform.

TalkingParents vs. other co-parenting platforms

TalkingParents is the complete solution for co-parents, offering the most robust selection of features that parents with shared custody desperately need. Having an application that keeps all interactions organized and documented encourages accountability and gives co-parents peace of mind should they need to go to court.

Although we are a for-profit business and not affiliated with the court system in any state or country, we have been court-recommended and approved since 2010. Judges, attorneys, mediators, court-appointed guardians, and other court professionals have seen how our tools can simplify lives and evidence. Our Unalterable Records save both parties time and money while reinforcing civility. People are more likely to interact appropriately when their communications and actions are documented without room for edits or deletion. This benefits all parties, including the children.

TalkingParents strives to provide co-parents and legal professionals with extensive information about our service through our Help Center, Parenting Resources page, social media channels, webinars, newsletters, and more. We never want you to be confused about any aspect of our platform, so if you ever have trouble finding the answers you’re looking for, please contact our customer support team immediately.
