In Georgia, both parents have the obligation to support their child(ren). However, the amount of child support to be paid is formulated and determined by the Georgia child support guidelines. The Georgia child support guidelines take into account the number of child(ren), their ages, any special needs of the child(ren), parents’ income (from any source), and time spent with the child(ren) to determine the amount of child support to be paid by the noncustodial parent.
Whether you are looking to modify your existing child support obligation or to recover any unpaid child support amount, we are here to help. If you are behind on your child support obligations, we can help as well. Failure to pay child support can have severe consequences, including garnishment of wages, interception of tax refunds, non-renewal of professional licenses, and even jail time.
