Question: I am used to Family Law Software as it was in June, 2016. Where do I find things in the July, 2016 release?

Answer: The goal of this release was to make the software easier to navigate.

You can think of the tabs as being organized, now, in the order in which you handle a case. First, you open the case. Then you enter the client's information. Then you discuss and negotiate. Finally, you print the documents.

To this end, the tabs are, from left to right, as shown below:

The main changes are the following:

1. Guidelines and Financial Forms. To view and print child support guidelines and financial forms, go to the Forms & Reports tab (why).

2. Negotiation tools. all of the negotiation tools (property division, alimony after-tax, etc.) are on the Analysis & Negotiation tab.

3. Financial tab. The Financial tab is gone (why). The client data entry screens are now at Client Info, and the report screens are now at Forms & Reports > More Reports > For Planners.
