Using Custody X Change with Child Support Software
Almost every state uses some form of the parenting timeshare percentage (or overnight percentage) to calculate child support. So, when you use the child support software for your state, you need to have a timeshare calculator so you can put in the right information.
Custody X Change is custody software with a timeshare calculator. Use the free download of the software to see the calculator.
Using Custody X Change with your child support software is important because:
- The timeshare percentage is difficult to figure out and most attorneys and courts simply guess the timeshare.
- If your child support is calculated from a guess or an estimate, you will pay or receive the wrong amount of support.
With Custody X Change, you enter your child custody schedule into the software and you can see the exact timeshare percentage for each parent. You can then print a detailed timeshare percentage report so you have the right number for your child support calculation.
View the timeshare percentage as you make your schedule.
Print a detailed timeshare percentage report.
Use Custody X Change in your custody case
You can also use Custody X Change to help you know how to change your schedule to alter the child support payments.
For example, if you figure out that increasing your time with the children 5% will decrease your child support, you can easily look at schedule options in Custody X Change so you have the new timeshare percentage. This helps you get more time with your child and lowers your child support payments.
You can also use Custody X Change to create a child custody agreement. The software lets you create a child custody schedule, add parenting provisions, and print your plan in legal terms.
If you are a family law professional, you can use the software to help you with all of your custody cases. If you are a parent going through your own custody case, you can use the software to make your own plan.
