Determining the amount of child support
Child support orders in the state of Georgia are governed by O.C.G.A. § 19-6-15. All awards are determined by this statute and by use of the Child Support Calculator.
When determining the amount of child support, Georgia law takes various factors into account. This includes costs associated with work-related childcare, health insurance, extra medical expenses, extracurricular activities, private school education, visitation-related travel expenses, and other expenses required to meet the needs of each child.
Having an experienced child support attorney on your side is critical to ensure the correct amount of child support is awarded.
Common child support legal issues
Once a child support order is issued, both parties must abide by the court’s ruling. It does not matter if the terms were mutually agreed upon by both parties or ordered by a judge - the child support award is binding.
However, the terms of the order may be modified if there is a material change in either parent’s income or financial status (like losing a job or making more money) or a change in the needs of any child.
This is where Marple Family Law comes in - no matter your child support situation, we will help you!
