Child Support

Although the Georgia child support statutes resemble those in other states, there may be problems that need to be addressed by an attorney. In many cases, child support follows a fairly formulaic set of rules, but in Georgia, changes to child support statutes make it important for you to contact a skilled attorney who understands the nuances of the law.

In 2007, Georgia dramatically changed the way child support is calculated. You need to make sure that you have an attorney who is familiar with the child support laws , as well as any recent changes that could affect your case. Failure to contact a skilled attorney could cost you thousands of dollars over the course of the time you are required to pay child support.

How Is Child Support Calculated?

As you transition into life after a divorce, you and your former spouse may wonder how child support is calculated. A court will look at a variety of factors to determine a suitable amount, including:

  • Both parents' incomes
  • Health insurance premiums paid by either or both parents
  • Childcare costs
  • Educational costs
  • Costs associated with extracurricular activities

In many areas, the child support law in Georgia is still evolving because of the change in Georgia law in 2007. This means there are still some gray areas and room for interpretation.
