This is an update to ChildView® version 2023.2.1 and includes our new “Life Insurance Calculator.”
- The new “Life Insurance Calculator” is included in this version of ChildView® . This flexible tool estimates the amount of life insurance needed to cover child and spousal support obligations, in total or on a child-by-child basis. It allows for the revision of child support amounts and periods, as well as the inclusion of future expenditures, in the calculated results. The accompanying reports provide full disclosure with respect to the assumptions, options, and calculations used in the resulting suggested minimum insurance. This tool also enhances future planning by providing a timeline of changing support as the children age.
- The BC provincial family law court forms have been added to the “Court Forms & Schedules” module in this version. The BC Supreme Court family law forms will be included in a subsequent release.
- An input field for “Other Deductions” (line 23200 of the personal tax return) has been added to screen 11 of the “Long Form Income” accessed from the “Annual Income and Deductions” window.
- The “Government Benefits” tab screen on the “Annual Income and Deductions” window has been updated to allow the input of retroactive Universal Child Care Benefits (UCCB) received after 2016. Retroactive claims made after July 1, 2016 may go back up to ten years.
