2. Where do I get the Worksheet and Schedules?
All calculators are available at http://www.georgiacourts.gov/csc/.
3. I’m not very good at math. Will it be hard for me to fill out the Worksheet and Schedules?
No. The electronic versions of th e Worksheet and Schedules will do the math and calculations for you. The Data Entry Form will walk you through the whole process by asking you a series of questions. Then, it will fill out the forms for you. As you are answering the questions and providing all of the information you have available, you should save your Data Entry Form every few minutes to save your work. There is nothing more frustrating than a computer crash when you haven’t saved your document!
