Final Pretrial Order Schedule
I am the author of the MCB automated Equitable Distribution Final Pretrial Order schedule spreadsheet. I had thought this to be the temporary home for the spreadsheet, but will continue to host it indefinitely now that it is an official CCF form.
Some important notes:
The spreadsheet was written in Excel 2003. It works with all versions of Excel.
A lot of work has gone into the automation of this form. When prompted, you must enable this content.
You must use the PTO menu, which appears to the right of "Help", for things to work properly. (In Excel 2013 the PTO menu appears in the Add-Ins tab). In particular, you must add lines with the menu. If you do not print from this menu, your headers and numbering will be wrong.
The support for tracking changes in Excel 2003 is poor when compared to Word. In Excel 2010 you can use "track changes" to see the changes of a spreasheet which has been exchanged by the parties. Users of Office Professional Plus 2013 or Office 365 ProPlus can use the SpreadSheet Compare 2013 tool.
If your browser opens the spreadsheet or instructions directly from here, please begin by using the "Save As" command to save it to your local drive. (Do not worry, you cannot save changes back to the web site.)
I work for the US government. My consulting work is done outside of my regular hours; I cannot respond to phone calls or emails regarding this form between the hours of 8:00 and 4:30 pm during the work week.
Finally, a nod to all my former colleagues who practice family law. It is a challenging field, and I hope that this makes your job a bit easier.
The current version of the worksheet is version 1.09, dated 3/26/2008. You can download it here.
