It’s amazing how quickly technology is progressing these days ”“ self-driving cars, astronauts taking selfies on the International Space Station, hydrophobic clothing ”“ so it shouldn’t surprise us to discover that when it comes to child support, there’s an app for that.
Ittavi’s SupportPay service allows divorcees to manage child support payments in a streamlined, hassle-free way. In North America, over $200 billion is exchanged for child support. Using SupportPay allows parents private, secure, transparent and automated payments for sharing expenses and managing child support. Medical, child care, education and other expenses, including ones that are not addressed by court order or state-run payment programs, can all be managed through Ittavi’s online service or on the SupportPay app.
Divorce is the easy part, says founder Sheri Atwood. There’s no such thing as a clean break from your ex when a kid is involved ”“ you are tethered to them financially. One parent owes money for shoes, the other for guitar lessons. Who paid for the doctor? The haircut? The back-and-forth can be strenuous, and SupportPay aims to simplify the process.
The best part is that it is totally transparent. You will know how much is being spent by both you and your ex-spouse. You will always know when child support payments are coming up. And if you and your ex are on sour terms, putting a screen between you and your ex can help remove emotion from the picture.
