During the conference, we introduced our new online child support calculator (www.ChildSupportTools.com) for Texas. Originally created last year in Kansas at the request of the Kansas judiciary and Kansas Legal Services for pro se litigants, the Texas version was completed just in time for the Houston meeting!
Designed to meet the needs of a single family (or case) for less than $20, the ChildSupportTools.com online calculator gives you the same tools contained in our professional child support software – without the investment in a full year subscription – and you can “revisit” the calculation to update the support calculation down the road.
Not a “quick and dirty” support estimator, the Child SupportTools.com calculator is supported with a comprehensive help file and online tutorials. It’s easy to use and makes it possible for the user (pro se or professional) to include all of the discretionary elements so often overlooked in child support advocacy – things like visitation costs, daycare expenses, health insurance, non-taxable income, dividends and interest income, union dues and other wage deductions, debt payments, fringe benefits, maintenance, college expenses, and other issues which can dramatically affect the “bottom line.”
Remember, overlooking only a few dollars a month can amount to thousands of dollars by the time a child becomes an adult!
In addition, during the month of August, the entire lineup of Bradley Software products (www.BradleySoftware.com) is being offered at a special discount for our friends in Texas – but don’t wait past August 31st – you can get any of our programs at a 50% discount for the rest of 2012 and all of 2013. That’s 16 months for the price of 6 – 10 months for free! There’s no risk – just download a free trial copy of our Parenting Time Calculator® or ArrearsMaster® programs for a free 24 hour trial before you decide. However, don’t wait too long. The special discount code (ENDOFYEAR2012) is only good during August!
