Understanding child support in Georgia

Many families in Georgia understand the importance of child support. Whether parents went through a divorce or were never married and broke up, child support plays an important role in ensuring that both parents maintain some level of responsibility for their children.

As some parents start to think about child support, it can be a bit worrisome. Unsure of how much they will receive, they may worry about being able to provide for their children, putting their well-being in jeopardy. Knowing how child support is determined in Georgia, however, can give parents who are hoping to receive child support an idea of what to expect.

While Georgia child support laws used to order a non-custodial parent to pay a flat percentage of his or her income, today, the rules are much different. Today, a judge will consider childcare costs, the incomes of both parents, health care costs for the child and other factors that may be presented at a hearing.

Because child support in Georgia is not based on one simple calculation anymore, the judge has a lot of leeway to determine a figure. For this reason, it is especially important for parents seeking child support to build a strong case in their favor.

An attorney can help a parent seeking child support create a budget and determine an appropriate amount to ask for in a hearing. With strong evidence to back up a request, a judge may be more likely to consider an agreement that is in your favor.
