About Us

The goal of the Family Law Software team is to create software that is truly helpful and at the same time very easy to use.

Overview

Family Law Software is by far the leading program specifically for divorce professionals nationwide.

Thousands of divorce professionals use it to help their clients calculate child support; prepare financial forms for the court; value defined benefit pensions; divide assets; and do financial projections to help clients consider alternatives and understand the implications of their decisions.

Family Law Software Story

Family Law Software was founded in 1996 by Wendell Smith and Dan Caine.

Wendell and Dan had previously developed income tax software that was purchased in 1993 by H&R Block. To this day, that software forms the foundation of the H&R Block consumer desktop software tax program. Millions of people have prepared their Federal and State income taxes using code developed by Wendell and Dan.

After leaving H&R Block in 1996, Wendell and Dan wanted to create another product that would use their tax and finance expertise, make a positive difference in the world, and not compete with corporate giants.

They hit on the idea of making software to handle the financial aspects of divorce.

They created a program for individuals, but the time was not right for that program. So they created a version for divorce professionals -- financial planners, mediators and divorce attorneys.

Today, still led by Wendell and Dan, Family Law Software is by far the leading program specifically for divorce professionals nationwide.

Mission

During the divorce process, people make many financial and tax decisions, such as:

Which assets should I keep? Should I stay in the house? What is a fair spousal support amount? Do I need to find a job or switch jobs? Who should claim the tax exemption for the children? What filing status should I use? Will I be OK with this settlement after spousal support ends?

In the heat of the moment, one or both parties often make decisions they come to regret.

We at Family Law Software are hoping, and helping, to change that.

All of us at Family Law Software hope that, by helping couples plan better and make smarter decisions during divorce, we are doing our bit to make a positive difference in the world.
