I created this calculator back in 2007 just for fun for my court reporting site. But what started as a nifty little tool started to get a lot of traffic. So I spun it off into its own domain: deadlinecalculator.com. This is intended as a free tool created to aid paralegals, legal secretaries, lawyers, their law firms and their clients from "dropping the ball" or missing important dates. The software calculates a given date distance from any start date. Where applicable, the weekend and holiday dates of the calculation are noted. Please enjoy and --THIS IS IMPORTANT -- make sure to double check my math with your math. After so many years and users, I'm pretty confident that the calculation is accurate but still, the software is only offered "as is." If you ever see a problem in the calculation, I definitely want to know so I can fix it! Email me:
DeadlineCalculator.com is just a simple date calculator. Its calculation is not robust enough off of which to exclusively base your case's timeline. It does not take into consideration any of your unique deadline requirements whatsoever. In no way, shape or form should you use this app as your sole means of calculation. Be prudent and call the court that is specific to your filing to verify any date calculation.

Update 2/4/2016 - I was informed about an oversight in the code that didn't explain why certain Mondays were being skipped over and the results would yield the next day, Tuesday. The problem was when the target date landed on a weekend AND the very following Monday was a holiday, that the code would correctly skip to Tuesday but it wouldn't say why. Example: 20 days after 1/25/2016. Fixed it!
Update 5/21/2015 - I updated the look & feel of the site, making it more streamlined and mobile friendly.
Update 7/2014 - I was told that the FRCP was amended to remove the distinction in 6(a)(2) for periods less than 11 days. Also, FRCP 6(e) is now 6(d). See http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/rule_6.
Update 3/2012 - Federal Rule 6 (a)(2) The calculator does not take into account Rule 6 (a)(2) for Federal cases, which excludes intermediate Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays when the period is less than 11 days.
Update 3/2012 - Federal Rule 6 (e) The calculator does not take into account Rule 6 (e) for Federal cases, which adds three days for all modes of service except hand delivery.
