Registration is now open for ChildView’s popular, live online sessions.  Dates for March through May are now available with more dates being added in the coming months.  Sessions will run from March to November. Click here for details.

These workshops are separate from the extensive support already provided with a ChildView license.  Much of the information provided in these sessions is not software specific.  Participants, who may be using other calculation methods or software other than ChildView, have still obtained valuable insights into child and spousal support calculations and possible tax and financial issues for their clients through these sessions.

** All sessions may qualify for CPD hours in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and other provinces **
