Per statute, the state of Georgia requires both parents to provide financial support to their minor children. Child support orders are put in place when parents are divorced, or when parental responsibility has been established through legitimation.
Child support payments are typically ordered by the court based on a formula which takes into consideration the gross income of both parents, the length of time the child spends with each parent, and other factors including childcare, and insurance. Once ordered by the court, the parent must make these payments regularly and on time or face additional legal action.
Financial stability is important to ensure a child’s needs including food, shelter, clothing, and medical expenses are met. We understand how important support is to your child and we can help you present a case to the court to establish or modify orders, increase the support amount, or help enforce child support orders.
