Divorce app - a new application helps couples through the painful process of separation.

Guidance would be given on a range of issues, which would include advice on how to prevent fighting in front of children, organising child support payments and how to cope with new partners.

Help will also be offered on other issues including help for wives "dumped" in favour of a younger woman, those wanting to save their relationship and those concerned with how to properly interact with the stepchildren.

According to the Daily Mail, the funding will help pay for the downloadable app, also known as a "widget", so that the divorcing parents can use it on their computers and mobile phones, the Telegraph reported.

And while the scheme could raise questions of more "nanny state" policies at a time of austerity, ministers argue that the "divorce app" will save money because it will encourage parents to resolve disputes and financial deals rather than relying on the Child Support Agency.

Department for Work and Pensions officials argued the 14 million pounds would be used by groups to create a "menu of support" service for separating parents.

"We all want the best for our children, which is why we're making it easier for parents to access the help they need during this time," Maria Miller, the Families minister, said.

"The fund will be for interventions that can help parents work together, including intensive counselling, emotional support and mediation, as well as online and telephone advice," she added.
