Prognosticator 2013[Order Now]
Prognosticator 2013 allows easy calculation of child support payments using the appropriate formula as specified in the Michigan Child Support Guidelines updated effective October 1, 2008. Recommendations adjust for time with each parent, or third party custody arrangements.
Adjustments may be made under the guidelines for other child support orders, additional children, and qualifying stepchildren as allowed by the formula. Social Security benefits received by the children are considered and child care tax credit is figured using the sliding scale based on the party’s income and time with each parent.
Prognosticator 2013 also prepares recommendations for alimony using the revised alimony guidelines as explained in the August-September 1990 issue of the Michigan Family Law Journal, adjusted for cost of living changes. For 2013, the claimant income factor has been adjusted for cost of living increases.
