We're a small start-up company developing an iPad and tablet app to help families through divorce. The app is based on experience working with numerous families to help them through a difficult time and aims to improve communication between parents and children.

If you are considering or going through a divorce/separation or have previously divorced/separated, your help would be invaluable in this early stage of development.

We're asking individuals to please fill in a short survey about their divorce experiences and potential use of the app. Thanks for your help!

Done. I feel the questions were very broad. I'm not sure what you'll get from the answers.

I've answered it. Think it could have done with some more text boxes to give explanation. Personally this is a household with various tablets and phones in it, I'd rather talk to my DC about the separation as it's personal to them rather than generic on an app.

Thanks for completing the questionnaire and for your feedback.

We're hoping the app will facilitate communication, rather than replace it. Every family is different and that talking needs to take place.

I think what some children find though is that there are some emotions they struggle to tell their parents about because they're worried about upsetting them.

It's those emotions we're trying to help children work through and give them ways of sending written messages to you if there's something they can't say out loud.
