You should be using the 2020 version.
If you purchase the 2020 version now, you will receive the 2021 version for free when it is released (probably in May or June).
DivorcewareNJ helps you fill out the NJ Child Support Guidelines forms, calculate the child support order, and print the necessary forms. DivorcewareNJ was developed by Art Lieberman, Ph.D., a divorce mediator. Used by attorneys, judges, mediators and individuals since 1995.
The professional version of DivorcewareNJ is downloaded and installed directly onto your computer. This version allows for an unlimited number of cases. Also included are forms for the Case Information Statement and the Uniform Summary Support Order.
This Profession version can be used from multiple computers in your building and the data can be shared among users. (It is not Internet-based.)
And just a note: Don’t confuse the “Guidelines” with the “CIS.” DivorcewareNJ is primarily designed for managing the NJ Child Support Guidelines Worksheets. It also includes a Case Information Statement (CIS) form that you can fill out separately for each case.
