Maryland SupportCalc software gives family law professionals a helping hand when it comes to calculating complex formulas needed for child support amounts.
The developer of Maryland SupportCalc, Legal+Plus, sought to create a program that used the most accurate guidelines from the state and reduced the time it took for users to extract accurate amounts from their case data.
When you use Maryland SupportCalc, the program lets you:
- Input gross income for both parents
- Figure child support based on current state guidelines
- Compare sole, shared and split custody situations
- Include previous financial responsibilities
- Calculate tax credit
By entering the income data from each case, you can quickly instruct the program to perform the calculations and supply you with the appropriate child support amounts. Because Maryland SupportCalc uses the most up-to-date California formulas and guidelines, you can feel confident that the amounts are in line with what the Maryland courts want.
If the state of Maryland changes the support guidelines during a legislative session, you'll be notified how about updates and how to get the most current software version onto your computer.
For example, if the state guidelines change or tax codes adjust, you'll receive software notification updates from Legal+Plus, letting you know that it is time to upgrade to the most current version of Maryland SupportCalc.
Maryland SupportCalc has features that help family law professionals be more productive in handling family law cases. Because working in family law requires lots of time spent on calculating formulas relevant to income, support and taxes, many attorneys, judges and mediators depend on software.
Maryland SupportCalc was designed by Legal+Plus specifically to make it easy and fast to input data, calculate the support amounts and print out results. Maryland SupportCalc eliminates all the potential for human calculating error, speeds up the time spent on each case and is always accurate.
Besides keeping current on Maryland's latest formulas for child support, Maryland SupportCalc software also includes the most recent IRS tax information, such as tax tables and income tax categories.
Family law professionals who use the program will feel confident that the results are accurate. Whether the case is simple or complex, Maryland SupportCalc can be trusted to produce the right child support totals from the case data you enter.
Custody X Change software includes a parenting time calculator that shows exactly how much time each parent has with the children. It can provide this data as total number of hours, days or as a percentage of time annually.
When users set up a parenting time schedule, the software automatically counts up all the full, half and quarter days for the non-residential parent. This accurate parenting time total really helps you get the most out of Maryland SupportCalc software.
Use Custody X Change to get accurate parenting time totals, because:
- Parenting time totals are difficult to figure out by hand, because attorneys must add all the quarter, half and full days within a year for the non-residential parent.
- Figuring parenting time totals adjust every time an attorney changes the schedule.
- Calculating and re-calculating any change to the schedule is so complex, some attorneys are forced to estimate or guess.
- Entering parenting time totals calculated from a guess or estimate into the Maryland child support formula means that child support amounts will likely be wrong.
Figuring out child support amounts requires exact numbers, from each parent's income to the amount of credits allowed. Another important number is the parenting time total, or how long each parent is scheduled to be with the children. Correct numbers mean the child support amount is fair and accurate, and Custody X Change delivers accurate totals every time.
