1. Download. Click the "Accept and Download" button on the download screen.

Click here to go to the Macintosh download screen

2. Unzip. After the download completes, double-click the downloaded file "FLSMac.dmg" (or FLSMac (1).dmg, etc.). If you are using Safari, this will be in the top right-hand corner. For Chrome, this will be at the bottom left.

3. Minimize. After that runs, minimize your browser (click the yellow button in the corner).

4. Drag. You will see the Family Law Software icon and the Applications folder in a window. Drag the Family Law Software icon onto the Applications icon.

5. Dock. Go to Finder, open the Applications folder, and drag the Family Law Software icon to the Dock at the bottom of the screen. You only ever need to do this once.

6. Start. Start Family Law Software by clicking the icon in the Dock at the bottom of the screen.
