"I am a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and I have been using Family Law software for close to a decade.
It is an incredible product and allows me to do my job with confidence and efficiency. It is intuitive and easy to use yet, at the same time, it is very sophisticated and nuanced. I love the fact that I can always use the detailed reports to dig into the calculations behind any number.
The software is constantly being updated to reflect current divorce and tax laws. I use the software to prepare court-ready financial affidavits, analyze pre- and post-divorce budgets, and understand the ramifications of any contemplated settlement. Everyone at Family Law Software is very professional and responsive to any questions or suggestions."

been an incredible help to my business.
Anytime I've needed assistance, even on
weekends, someone has been there to help me!

make more money."
Andrew Hoffman, CDFA, Mandeville, Louisiana
"I appreciate the flexibility and choices
of all the reports in the software.
Creating report templates for each attorney
and client used to consume vast amounts of my time.
Because Family Law Software has reports for
virtually every attorney, (and ultimately), client need, I can customize my
analysis even more efficiently.
A key feature is the ability to share case
files with attorneys. When my attorneys also use the software, working together
in tandem on the case is even more synchronized and harmonized.
Not only do I use the software, but for cases
where I am retained for Net Worth Statement and Financial Affidavit
preparation, I will not take the case unless the other professionals involved
use Family Law Software as well. "

"Before switching to Family Law Software,
I was using one program for tax calculations, child support guidelines,
creating financial affidavits and other calculations, and another program to
illustrate property division and long-term projections of settlement scenarios.
It was an inefficient and frustrating process.
Now I use Family Law Software for every aspect
of the divorce planning process, saving me time and my sanity!
The reports are exceptional and easy to
understand, which help me create a professional and impressive work product.

advisors to pick up a file after many months of inactivity.

The negotiate tab in the software
is a professional's direct link to transition the parties to settlement."
Rebecca Murphy, Cleveland, Ohio
"As a Collaborative Practitioner,
Mediator, and Family Law Litigator, Family Law Software's clear and flexible
reports has made settlement (and persuasion) so much easier.
This program was written by people who
understand that there can be multiple points of view on each issue and asset
and who make it easy for us to evaluate how far apart these really are.
The ease of entering information once,
documenting the details, and applying the information where needed in other
reports is astounding.
The tech support, responsiveness to questions
and speed of updates to keep up with tax and other changes is the best
Maralee Nelder, CFLS, CDFA, Grass Valley, California

Luana Mobley Corral, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
"I have been using Family Law Software
since 2009 and must say that I am more than satisfied with the product.
In my opinion it is far superior to any other
divorce software on the market.
Whenever there is a change in the divorce or
tax law the software is updated immediately.
When purchasing any product the sign of a
great company is the customer support after the sale and Family Law Software
customer support is excellent. If you have a question on divorce or how to use
the software the answer is just a phone call away.
The how to videos and webinars at no charge is

offer. Keep up the good work!"

"At our firm we provide comprehensive financial
planning. The planning software we use is top notch but does not offer us the
unique aspects of a divorce situation.
Built into the Family Law Software program are
such unique items as property division, mortgage refinancing, pension
calculations, child support and maintenance.
The software also provides the ability to
present different settlement options to the client. The attention to detail is
surprising. In addition, the technical support provided to us has been

"I like: 1. That the Family Law Software
Planner has the capability to show two individual tax scenarios with the
