Fayr
Co-Parenting APP

Fayr was born out of two desires: to become a better co-parent, and to make the experience of co-parenting better. After his separation, Michael Daniels found it a constant challenge to be the best, most present father he could be. The time he wanted to spend focused on his children was instead taken up by tedious documentation, scheduling and preparing for court. Why wasn't there an alternative to this time consuming, anxiety producing way co-parents were forced interact? Enter Fayr. Our app encompasses the whole range of co-parents needs - financial, documentation, geo pinpointing, scheduling, communication - for the entire time you're co-parenting. What makes us different? At Fayr, it's not just about efficiency and ease (though we love those). We also help you create a better co-parenting experience by providing tools for: constructive communication, argument diffusion, and emotional support.

We Parent & SupportPay​

By special invitation from Founder Erika Englund, Paulette Rigo is an Advisory Board Member of both Support Pay and We-Parent.

All Better Divorce Academy clients receive lifetime FREE memberships to both!

  • Your code for both products is the same: PROREFER
  • Please note that WeParent is a family subscription, meaning one parent will sign up on behalf of both parents (and/or step-parents)
  • SupportPay is an individual subscription, meaning each parent signs up on his or her own. Both may use the same code. SupportPay is most functional when used by both parents, as that allows for payment/receipt of support and expenses, communications between parents, and a dispute-resolution process. However, it is possible for one parent to utilize SupportPay unilaterally as a way to organize and manage their own records
