NJ Child Support Guidelines & CIS

2018 Update & Trial Version

Version 2018.03.00

What's new in 2018? The tax tables that the Guidelines rely on are updated every year.  

  • Demo or pre-purchase version: If you have never installed DivorcewareNJ on your computer, you may download this version for free. (When it asks for a serial number, just leave it blank.) It will let you try out the program 2 times. Then if you want to purchase the program, click here. After paying, you will be sent an email within an hour containing your serial number which will "convert" your demo copy to become full-featured.
  • Update from 2017: If you have the 2017 version on your computer, you may download the 2018 version and begin using it, but usage will be limited until you input the new serial number for the 2018 version. The 2018 serial number begins with "18". You can purchase the 2018 version by clicking here. Once purchased, you will receive your new serial number by email within an hour.
  • Update for 2018: If you have already installed a 2018 version of DivorcewareNJ, then you can download and install this free update. You will not need to re-enter your serial number (which begins with "18").
  • Educational version: If you have never installed DivorcewareNJ on your computer, you may download this version for free. When it asks for a serial number enter the special serial number that you were given in your class. If you want to purchase the program, click here


(Don't sweat it. All 4 of the "download" buttons go to the same place. It's the serial number you'll be using that makes the difference.)

Windows or your AntiVirus program might prevent you from downloading or running this, or it might say that the program is unsafe. Don't worry, it's safe. Please click here for instructions.

If you get either of the messages below, click on "more info" and tell it to run the program, anyway.
