Family Lawyers – your subscription begins Monday, February 3.
DivorceMate, a cloud-based software for calculating child and spousal support, is now available free of charge to all members of the Law Society of Saskatchewan until February 1, 2021, based on a 1-year pilot project negotiated with DivorceMate.
DivorceMate has been developing family law software for Canadian family law professionals for over 30 years. There are over 8,000 people currently using DivorceMate across Canada including lawyers, judges, mediators, paralegals, and many others.
The software includes:
To create your profile, visit the DivorceMate website, and look for the box addressing Saskatchewan Lawyers, especially where it says “Please click here to get started.” Fill out the form with your firm information and use your own name as “Primary Contact.” Then simply wait a short time for DivorceMate to create your profile and firm account (if you are the first from your firm to sign up).
Each law firm will have a separate account with one or more account administrators, who can create and delete profiles for their firm. If you would like to act as an account admin, include that in the “additional comments” at the bottom of the form. If you are acting as account admin for a firm with multiple family lawyers, also include the number of lawyers in the comments, and DivorceMate will create space for those profiles to be added. The accounts can be managed using the “ACCOUNT” menu. To add a user in your firm, click on “PEOPLE” then use the blue “NEW USER/CONTACT” button. It’s easy!
Within each firm, calculations can be shared with lawyers working on the same matter. Matters can also be restricted to certain lawyers within the firm. This is done by selecting a matter, then clicking on the “settings” icon:
From there, you can “modify permissions” to choose which lawyers can view and work on a matter.
