Family Law Software FAQs

What is family law software?

Family law software is software that makes case management and client relationship management easier. Clio’s family law software takes care of the basics, leaving family lawyers to care of their clients. 

With Clio Grow, Clio’s CRM solution, client onboarding is reduced down to a single step. Key information is collected once and then applied throughout document-intensive family law workflows. Firm management becomes a breeze. 

With Clio’s family law software, family law solicitors and others at the family law firm can better manage their time, their workload, and their clients.

What are the common features of family law software?

Best-in-class family law software provides four key features.

Cloud-based matter and document management mean that family lawyers can securely store critical files and access them on the go—whether they’re in court handling divorce proceedings or at their client’s home. 

With advanced calendaring capabilities, family law solicitors can always stay on top of their to-do list. Never again will they miss a key deadline or leave a client in the lurch. 

By integrating key tools (such as Outlook, Google Apps, BundleDocs, Box, and Dropbox), family law solicitors can create an interconnected tech ecosystem. Their family law software will serve as an all-in-one resource for all matrimonial, finance, and child law case documents, client communications, upcoming appointments, and so on. 

Finally, Clio’s family law software’s billing feature and client accounting integrations significantly reduce time spent creating and chasing client invoices. 

What are the benefits of family law software?

Family law software allows family law solicitors and other family law firm staff to do more with less effort, providing them with three main benefits: more time, less hassle, and fewer errors. 

Time is a precious commodity for family lawyers. That’s why Clio’s family law software streamlines workflows with automated forms, custom fields, and task lists. Family law solicitors can spend more time with their clients during emotionally challenging periods, such as custody battles, instead of on back-end administrative processes. 

It reduces administrative hassle by collecting and organising key client data in one easy-to-view place. It even makes it easier for family lawyers to bill clients and get paid. During difficult matrimonial, finance, and child law cases, administrative hassle is the last thing either party needs.

With more time and fewer administrative hurdles, family law solicitors can focus their energy on what’s important—their clients’ cases, leading to fewer errors or missed deadlines.

How do law firms choose a family law software?

Every family law firm has its own approach. Some might be tempted by a family law software free trial (which Clio offers), while others will carefully draw up a list of the precise features they want and how much they’re willing to spend.

Ultimately, family law firms need to first draw up a list of what they struggle with on a daily basis. This will outline the capabilities that they need—which is the perfect starting point when considering new software. 

But features alone aren’t the be-all and end-all. Top family law firms understand that they will have an ongoing relationship with their family law software provider. This means that they need to choose a provider who has fantastic customer service—and who won’t stop trying to make their lives easier.

In other words, a provider like Clio.
