Multiple installations. This is a huge benefit of Family Law Software.

A second attorney should purchase a second license.
Multiple states. Every subscription to Family Law Software includes every state. So if you need to check child support, or estimate state taxes, outside your state, it's all included in your subscription.
Free technical support. We offer free unlimited technical support by phone and e-mail.
Free training. We offer free live webinars once a month. We offer free training videos on the web site.
Free updates. Your subscription includes updates that are timely, unlimited, and free, whenever there are changes to forms or taxes.
Platforms and networking. The software runs on Windows and Macintosh computers. The software works on any Windows network and in a Citrix environment.
iPhone, iPad and Android. We have an app for basic child support only, for iPhone, iPad, and Android in New York. However, with an Internet connection, you can “remote in” from an iPad or other tablet to view and control the full software, running on your home or office computer.
