Iowa Support Master vs. any other option...
"I have been using Iowa Support Master for the last 15 years in my family law practice. Over those years, Alft & Wilson Publishing has always kept their program up to date with changes in the Tax Code, the Iowa Child Support Guidelines, and technology. They have also supported family law attorneys and events around the State of Iowa, giving free presentations on their software at family law seminars, providing raffle prizes and sponsorships, and above all, handling phone calls at all hours of the day and night from attorneys with guideline or program questions. Alft & Wilson stand behind their program and more importantly, they support it. Their work in developing, maintaining, and growing Iowa Support Master is deeply personal. I am grateful for their dedication to providing quality software that has helped thousands of Iowa families with support obligations for many, many years."
