iGuideline Licensing - Designed to Empower Users
iGuideline offers innovative and reasonably priced licensing options that makes the software affordable to Lawyers and other Professionals offering services to parents, and to parents who wish to perform their own calculations.
A copy of iGuideline can be obtained as a free download from the Mac App Store.
Upon downloading iGuideline users can create a sample file which has incomes locked but with most of iGuidelines features activated so users can explore those features and learn how powerful iGuideline is and how easy it is to perform calculations.
Once users decide they want to perform calculations for their clients or themselves there are two different licensing options which are available through In-App Purchases made from within the iGuideline Store Window, which allow persons to perform their own, or their clients’ calculations.
Licensing is done through In-App Purchases made from the iGuideline Store Window within the App.
Subscription Based Licenses
A Subscription based license is designed to meet the needs of Lawyers and other Professionals who offer services to parents which require the calculation of child and spousal support, and who have the need to perform numerous calculations over the course of the subscription period, which can be 3 or 6 months, or a year. With a Subscription the user can install and use iGuideline on all of their computers (i.e. the Lawyers Desktop, the Lawyer’s Assistant’s Desktop, the Lawyer’s Laptop, and the Lawyer’s home computer) for the single Subscription fee ($49.99 for 3 months, $99.99 for 6 months, and $199 for a full year).
During the subscription period the user enjoys the following benefits and features:
Users can create an unlimited number of files with all features and data fields unlocked;
Users can perform calculations for all years from 2012 onward;
The SSAG Module is included so users can perform calculations under the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines; and
Lawyers and other Professionals (Mediators, Parenting Coaches, and Psychologists) are entitled to have a Detailed Listing in iGuideline’s “Find A Professional” feature which allows the Professional to advertise the availability of their services to parents and other users of iGuideline.
This benefit is optional and only available to qualifying persons (the Professional must be a active member of the Law Society, Association, or other governing body in their respective Province.), and requires the user to register. All listings are subject to approval by Orsa Software Inc.
(Many Professionals may consider that the cost of a Subscription is worth the advertising benefit alone, with the use of the software being considered an added bonus.)
When the user’s Subscription period ends iGuideline is not disabled. Users can continue to open, print, and edit their existing files with the exception of the Parents’ names and DOBs, and the calculation year for the files which are locked with the information previously entered. The user’s Listing in the “Find a Professional” feature is also switched to a “Basic Listing” which only shows the Professional’s name and phone number. The user can renew their Subscription when the need to create a new file, or they can opt to license iGuideline on a “Per File” basis for any new files they wish to create.
"Per File" Based Licenses
For parents, and for Lawyers and other Professionals who only need to perform a limited number of calculations in a year, there is also a “Per File” based License which allows the user to purchase the number of files (calculations) they need to perform. The available options are as follows:
A Single (1) file for $19.99
A Two-Pack (2) of Files for $29.99
A Five-Pack (5) of Files for $74.99
This allows parents who generally only need to create one (1) file a year to access the power to do a Child Support calculation for their circumstances for a low affordable price ($19.99).
When “Per File” basis License users create a file they are prompted to enter the Parents’ names and DOBs, and the calculation year which are then locked once the file is created. The user can then freely enter, delete, and change all other information in the file, including income information, the number of children, and expenses.
Starting with Version 2019.0.0 the SSAG (Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines) Module is now included for “Per File” based License users.
All software updates are free of charge to all users regardless of the license type they choose. This includes updates for changes to tax and benefit numbers, as well as updates providing new features.
Access to software that does all the calculations under the Canadian Child Support Guidelines (and the SSAG) has never been this affordable.
