NJ Family Law Software for Divorce Lawyers on the Go

We know you’re not always sitting in your office, or in front of your computer. That’s why we’ve developed mobile applications for divorce lawyers on the go.

As one of the nation’s leading family law software companies, we are pleased to announce the launch of our NJ Child Support Calculator Smartphone app (mEasySoft). At no charge*.

mEasySoft allows you to calculate child support amounts, quickly and accurately, right on your iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, iPad, or other mobile device. It allows you to evaluate and settle divorces: confidently, responsibly, and remotely.

Imagine: you can evaluate settlement offers on-the-spot—you’re still in court or taking the deposition. You can perform comparisons of alimony payments versus lump-sum settlements on your morning commute—and then email them to yourself. You can pull up ballpark numbers…while at the ballpark! And you can do so while talking to a potential divorce client that you met while on the go.

mEasySoft does most things that our family law software does. It:

•  Keeps you updated with the latest state tax and guideline changes.

•  Allows you to perform calculations—and then email them to yourself, your client, and anyone else you like.

•  Performs the trickiest calculations—such as figuring out the difference between teenage support adjustments at the initial award level v. the support modification level.

If you’re a current Case Information Settlement Software (CIS) or Divorce Financials Software subscriber, then both the mEasySoft app and corresponding tech support are free . Just use the regular support channels.

Divorce Settlements on the Road

Picture this. Your client’s sitting in the deposition room, handling one question after the next: beautifully (just as you trained him or her). You see a gesture, leading to a private conference. Suddenly, you are being asked to step outside to receive a settlement offer.

How do you advise your client? Do you know how the figure plays out in real life? Wouldn’t it be great if you could punch the number into a calculator, get an instant report about its impact on your client’s lifestyle, budget, income taxes, kids, and other critical factors, and advise your client in an informed way?

Now picture this. Your client’s getting grilled, and not handling it particularly well. The facts are simply not in his or her favor. You’ve seen enough. You’d like to put an end to this. You pause the proceedings, and pull your client aside for a talk. He or she wants to settle, but the question is, how do you know what to offer?

If you’re a busy divorce lawyer, you might be facing a situation like this every single day. Fear not: we have a solution. Family Law mobile apps – on your BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, or iPad device.

Easy Soft makes Divorce Financials—and all of our other family law software— available to you outside of the office, and in the deposition room, the courtroom, even the supermarket checkout line (what else are you going to do?). If you have come to rely on our divorce law calculators, then we’d like to make them available to you—at no extra charge*.

Picture this. You have Easy Soft Divorce Financials, or our mobile apps family law software. You punch in a figure, and see that it will make your client’s income taxes steeper than an alternate scenario. This is too easy: you proffer the alternate. It’s accepted, and you’ve done well by your client.

What could be easier?

New! ETB 4.0 Ease in Invoicing…and Other Reports

As we discussed in our last blog post, we’ve made a host of improvements to Easy TimeBill (ETB), our intuitive and simple law office billing software. In that last post, we discussed changes in the user interface. Today, we’ll discuss changes in invoicing, and other legal time and billing reports.

The first reporting improvement centers on invoices. There’s currently a single global invoicing format for current users of Easy TimeBill.

The new ETB 4.0 offers 12 different invoice formats to choose from—displaying varying levels on times and balances. Once you’ve set a format for an individual matter, you can select that format for every task you enter with regard to that matter.

What’s more, you can now see the latest payments since the last invoice – and whether these payments were posted to your operating or trust account (reminder: we also offer Easy Trust , trust accounting software that works seamlessly with ETB).

The following new reports are also available:

•  A new report listing matters with unpaid balances.

•  A new report listing matters with positive retainer balances—allowing you to determine whether to apply these balances to unpaid invoices.

•  A new report that displays only fixed-fee matters—and what portion of each fee has been billed.

•  The ability of an identified “matter owner” to filter, view, and print a given type of report. These reports include Matter Billing Rates, and Matter Billing Hours.

•  And more.

To inquire about upgrading your current law office billing software, call us at

800-905-7638. To download a free trial version of Easy TimeBill, click here.

New! ETB 4.0 Greater Ease in Legal Time and Billing

Fantastic news! We have just released Easy TimeBill 4.0.

As you know, Easy Soft legal software emphasizes ease of use. Our company mission—built right into our name – is an ongoing quest to offer the ultimate in software simplicity.

Although we stand by the ease of all of our existing software, we are constantly engineering improvements which make it even more intuitive and simple to use.

Whether you’re already taking advantage of Easy TimeBill (ETB) , our legal time and billing software, or whether you’re considering switching to ETB from your current program, we’re thrilled to announce ETB 4.0. Among the many, many improvements of this new module:

•  Individual tabs for your Time/Expense Cards, Invoices, and Transactions—rather than less-visible pulldown menus. What’s more, you can search each of these fields to find a particular client, matter, or bill—a powerful search capacity for the increased efficiency of all timekeepers.

•  Timekeeping abbreviations! Yes, ETB 4.0 gives you the ability to teach the software timekeeping abbreviations, such as CC (conference call), PC (phone call), or MTG (meeting).

•  The ability to print file labels directly from your Client and Matter files.

•  The ability to waive any unpaid invoice you like—through a discount function which can reduce the owed amount all the way to 0.

This is just a subset of the new improvements to our billing software for attorneys.

There’s also a host of changes to the ETB reporting system—allowing you to manipulate reports and analyze any accounting and billing concerns: at a glance. We’ll be talking about these in our next blog post.

RESPA & You

There’s been much ado about the new RESPA law that went into effect in early 2010. The new HUD Settlement Statements are long and convoluted. Lenders and settlement agents need to make their good faith estimates more exacting. Are the regulations too strict? Not strict enough? How are they enforced? Some are calling for more change, just as we’re all still figuring out the new requirements.

But if you have Easy Soft’s Easy HUD software , you know you’re in compliance with the most updated laws. You also know that we will try to ease your change.

This Real Estate Closing Software automates everything for your HUD 1 closing. We said everything : your closing forms, your HUD closing statement, ensuring HUD is balanced, your 1099-S statements (you can even file them with us—paperlessly), and your disbursements… come closing time.

The software automatically figures out who gets what and how much, it makes the disbursement.

Easy HUD’s power and ease are why it’s the one of the most popular HUD form software in our market, in the U.S. It’s why thousands of real estate settlement agents use it—and why that was the case before, and after the RESPA changes.

Lenders appreciate Easy Soft’s Easy HUD software , too. It gives your lender a certain comfort level—and a certain confidence about your calculations specially as it pertains to GFEs.

To learn more about our HUD software, call Easy Soft at 800 905 7638.

This is a trademark of all Easy Soft software, including our legal billing software , our trust accounting software , our national divorce software , our real estate closing software , and other valuable (and value-packed) programs.

Another advantage is that if the form you need isn’t there, you can create a new one. You can add virtually any type of form you need, and use case data to auto populate it.

Easy Soft has been around for 26 years. We’re stable, and we’re competent. We’ve been working with divorce attorneys like you for 26 years. We are well familiar with the challenges of your specific practice.
