The custody cliché of the mother taking care of the kids while the father comes by on alternate weekends isn’t common anymore. Even if one party is considered the custodial parent, kids often spend plenty of time with the non-custodial parent as well. Pennsylvania child support calculator considers the number of days with each parent when calculating the monthly amount.
PA child support guideline assumes that when child is in the care of the non-custodial parent, that parent is covering the child’s meals and other expenses. So the more time a child spends with the parent paying child support, the lower the calculated support will be. This is why it is essential that parents count the days of support carefully so that a fair level of support can be calculated.
Custody days also affect the type of custody: sole or shared. PA child support guidelines consider custody to be sole custody if one parent has the children less than 40% of the time or 146 days per year. In this case the main determining factor in Pennsylvania child support calculation is the non-custodial parent’s income.
However if each parent has custody at least 146 days per year then Pennsylvania family law considers this to be a shared custody arrangement. The support formula considers both parents income as well as the actual number of days per year each parent has the children. Attorneys need to be sure to use a PA support calculator that considers both these scenarios.
Although many other states have similar laws, it is essential that attorneys use specialized Pennsylvania divorce law software to come up with a support amount that is fair to the kids, the parents and adheres to Pennsylvania state law.
Situations like these are why we offer state-specific divorce software such as EzSupport-PA, our PA support calculator. When you determine child support using our software you can be confident that the amount calculated is valid under current Pennsylvania law. Our other child support products include NY, NJ and AZ child support calculator. We hope to add other states to our divorce financial settlement lineup in the near future.
Child support isn’t about what’s fair to the divorcing couple, but rather what is needed by the children. Use state-specific legal software programs designed to accommodate local family law ordinances to calculate the proper support and maintenance amounts for your clients.
If you are working on a New York divorce case or a Pennsylvania divorce case, this shouldn’t be a news flash: New York and Pennsylvania require a spousal support calculation in every divorce case. That’s right. You need more than just a NY child support calculator; you need to calculate alimony.
For those of you in New York, the mandatory maintenance calculation came into play about a year ago. Because the politicians couldn’t agree on a single formula, you must perform and show two calculations and advance the lesser of the two. When you use Easy Soft’s New York divorce software, you get the maintenance worksheets you need. All that you have to enter are the incomes of each party and any applicable deductions, like child support. Our legal software for New York maintenance calculations does the rest and provides the calculations on a printable worksheet.
If you’re practicing divorce law in Pennsylvania, then you’ll want to use our Pennsylvania alimony calculator. In PA, you’re also required to provide an alimony calculation to the court, based upon fractions of each party’s income, net of child support. As with our NY software, the PA support calculator ensures your judicial submissions are in compliance with the law.
Mandatory support calculations are easier to overlook than one would think. You do it often. You’ve done it in other cases. You thought you already did it in this case, until you walked into a courtroom. You might have forgotten to include it in a New York no fault divorce and gotten away with it once, but is that an anomaly your client can bank on?
Using our legal software products when you prepare your New York divorce or Pennsylvania divorce, you will fill in core information, like income, on one screen, and Easy Soft will immediately populate that information to all applicable forms. You will see those lists of forms in your routine use of the software, making you less likely to forget to print and review a mandatory calculation, whether it is child support or alimony.
Here at Easy Soft, we have a working relationship with each one of our 15,000 customers. From the Ez-Support NY to Ez-Support PA and beyond, the only product we have offered for more than 20-years is legal software. Our products are shaped by our research and your practice experience to ensure that when the law changes, your law office software updates to meet new requirements.
Make a $50 mistake in a bankruptcy case: that’s a one-time mistake. In a divorce settlement, the same mistake may cost your client—and his or her children—up to $50 per week, for years. That’s a cost you have to live with.
The solution is to be dead accurate every time. Right?
If you’re a divorce attorney practicing family law in Pennsylvania, you know that’s easier said than done. Pennsylvania divorce calculations are complicated. Even if you’re a bona fide math whiz (given that you went to law school, we’re guessing you’re not), computations for base figures—such as net disposable income or assets & liabilities distribution—can make your head spin.
But properly planned divorce settlements result in higher disposable incomes for both parties—and lower tax liabilities. Helping clients find a divorce settlement that minimizes their tax obligations is not only a matter of professional responsibility: it’s an economic reality.
On December 6, 2010, Easy Soft launched a software package to make things easy. EzSupport-PA, a Pennsylvania Family Law Software is designed for divorce lawyers—not CPAs or tax attorneys. Coupled with the Divorce Financials program, PA lawyers get every tool they need for their family law practice. The software:
- Captures all case information from the outset—and uses it to populate forms, statements, pleadings, and the like.
- Adjusts support calculation for shared parenting, multiple families, excess mortgages, and the like.
- Allows you to prepare multiple support scenarios, compare and pick the best option.
Once you’ve entered the information, our Pennsylvania divorce law softwaredoes the heavy lifting. The resulting worksheet details a variety of scenarios. For each scenario, it provides a statutorily precise bottom line: one number for spousal support, and another number for child support.
Easy—just like our name.
What’s more, the new Pennsylvania Family Law Software isn’t just a powerful divorce calculator: it provides you an opportunity to automate Pennsylvania family law forms, too. These include:
- Pleadings: Complaints. Answers. Claims. Counterclaims. Motions. Notices. Summons.
- Supporting Documentation: Income Statements. Expense Statements.
- Correspondence: Letters. Responses.
You can virtually add any type of form and use case data to auto populate your forms.
