2houses is a web platform and mobile app that help separated parents communicate and become better organized for what is the most important thing in their lives: their children.
What does 2houses propose to their users?
Organize custody scheduling, keep track of shared expenses and share school and medical information are some of the set of tools 2houses is offering. The platform aims to prioritize written and pre-formatted communication better than arguments over the phone.
What are the results of 2houses since its launch?
Since the launch of a beta version end of 2011, 2houses services evolved a lot: on top of the co-parenting tools (web and mobile) that are used by more than 25.000 families, serving more than 30.000 children in 100 countries; the portal also offers proprietary content and resources for separated and divorced parents and a directory of professionals (mediators, lawyers, coaches, etc) who are happy to answer members' specific questions.

What problem 2houses answers ?
Communication between divorced/separated parents is sometimes difficult and generator of conflicts. Whether we like it or not, separated parents still have to communicate on the matters of their children.
In high conflict families or even with good speaking terms parents, phone and direct conversations often generate useless arguments. Having a web interface that reduce the emotional element can minimize conflicts and make the children happier.
