Project for the Improvement of Child Support Litigation Technology (PICSLT) is an R&D project that focuses on the science, engineering, and application of child support guidelines. Project work began in 1989 with investigations at Intelligent Systems Research Corporation (ISR) and has continued as an independent project since 1994.

The project invites interaction with other researchers interested in child support science and technology and those who are seriously interested in legal reform, including child support guideline review commissions. Project work is non-partisan, non-gender oriented, and not affiliated with special interest groups. Progress has been made on the science of child support decision making since the federally mandated presumptive use of child support guidelines began in 1989. International interest is also invited.
