Alternative for Legalmath program

I am still pretty new to Linux, but I love it. I have switched two computers, my own and my mom's home computer, over to Linux Mint 7 XFCE CE, after trying out close to a dozen distros.

Now my mom wants her work computer switched. But we need a program to replace the aforementioned Legalmath. That program will calculate interest on irregular payments (such as past due child support or spousal maintenance)and also calculates payments needed on a loan or past due bill in collection. It can also calculate future value of present payments and some other interesting things that my mom does not really do.

If there are any other family law attorneys in the forum who have found a good program, please let me know. Or if anyone knows of a program that will do these functions well. This is basically the last hurdle before my mom and I both throw Windows completely out.

Basically the program is a custom set of computations.

Ask your local Foss group to do it. It should be very easy in R.

or write the specs first

Possible applications that may be adapted :
Gnumeric, GnuCash, ...

You may want to first try to install it on Linux with wine. It might work. And then Google for alternatives.
