Six Month Free Trial
After your free trial, if you choose to continue with Family Law Software, it costs just $99 one-time charge, plus $49.95 per month (= $599 per year), and can replace both the child support and forms programs you are using now, thus making it both better and cheaper than the alternatives.
Child and Spousal Support
Approved by the California Judicial Council
Family Law Software's child support calculation has been approved by the California Judicial Council and will be accepted by all courts in California. And the familiar format of our guideline report will be readily recognized.
Family Law Software also includes powerful, customizable Bonus Reports. Enter a range of possible bonuses for a party, and see the impact on child and spousal support. Or, enter two different bonus amounts and see the impact on support of those two bonuses.
Spousal support calculation is also included, customized by county. The result matches other leading software, within 2%.
Easy to Learn
Straightforward data entry screens are easier to manage than other software. Your staff will thank you!
Guideline Calculations Revealed!
Family Law Software not only makes it easy to generate clear and complete child and spousal support calculations, but it provides a complete audit trail explaining the calculation.
Integrated Disclosure Statements
Fully-Integrated Disclosure Statements
Fully-integrated Disclosure statements means that the information you entered for child support already populates the Disclosure. Add additional expense and asset information, and you're ready to file!
Footnotes, highlights, and "unknown" or "TBD"
Persuade powerfully, with footnotes -- as lengthy as you like -- right on the same page as the asset or expense, immediately beneath the entry; yellow and blue highlights; bold font on footnotes. Specify items as "estimated," and enter values such as "Unknown" or "To be Determined." For Spanish-speaking clients, view and print Spanish language versions as well.
Automatic Attachments on FL-142
Automatically creates attachments on Form 142.
Automatic Creation of Form 150 line 11
Automatically generates Form 150 line 11 (asset listing).
Easy and Integrated Property Division
Assets you enter for the Assets and Debts statement automatically populate the Property Division screen.
Enter allocations as dollars or percents
Enter allocation of each asset either in terms of dollars, or in terms of a percent. Everything automatically adjusts.
Show assets not yet allocated
Yellow bar on chart shows assets not yet allocated. Great for working live with the client when preparing for settlement discussions, at a settlement conference, or in a mediation or a collaborative context.
Equalization shows how far from 50/50
An Equalization line on the worksheet automatically updates with each entry, to show how far from 50/50 (or any other target) the allocation currently is.
Divide assets after-tax as well
A unique worksheet allows you to divide assets on an after-tax basis! Change the percent allocation of the asset, and instantly see the impact on the overall after-tax division.
Show multiple property division scenarios on a single screen.
