Update on April 1st Guideline Changes

KS High CourtOur current 2012 Kansas Child Support Calculator supports the pre-April 1st guidelines (Administrative Order 216). If you use it to calculate a worksheet for periods after April 1, 2012, the results will not be accurate.

A few days ago the court staff responded to questions we raised on the new guidelines. As originally published (and still online at the Court’s website as of this posting), the new 2012 Guidelines (AO260) contained conflicting provisions and typos. Those provisions made it impossible for us to update the software for periods after the AO260 effective date of April 1, 2012.

Now that the conflicts and typos are resolved (though not yet published online), we are working on an update to the program to permit 2012 program to calculate both the pre-April 1st and post-April 1st Guidelines.

Our goal is to have the update released as soon as possible. We do not yet have a firm date. We’ll post an update on our blog and direct an email to current subscribers as soon as we can with a more precise release date.

If you are a current 2012 subscriber, you will receive the update automatically, without cost, as soon as we release it. Just be sure to allow the program to update itself whenever it requests permission.

Rest assured, we’ve got your back.  Bradley Software is focused on making sure that our subscribers have the best and most accurate solutions to changing guidelines!
