In Georgia, child support is the right of the child and both parents have a duty of support. Nevertheless, one of the most
contested matters in family law cases is resolving the amount of support, if any, to be paid from one parent to the other.
Georgia has child support guidelines and calculators which help in determining what the appropriate amount of support should be.
The child support calculator is based on predetermined tables, but there are many variables and deviations which can lower or increase
the amount of support.
The relevant (and lengthy) statute on child support is O.C.G.A §19-6-15.and the Georgia Child Support Commison has calulators available at http://cscalc.gaaoc.us/ but as mentioned,
there are many factors and variables which can potentially dramatically impact the amount of child support the calulators indicate.
The worksheets and calculators can appear intimidating to those who do not work with them every day like our attorneys do.
Our attorneys are very familiar with the child support calculators and their nuances, and have even lectured to other attorneys
on how to properly use them.
If you have a child support question, whether it be regarding the proper amount to be paid, an arrearage that has accrued,
or modifying a current child support order, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We also often represent clients seeking to modify (whether it be an increase or decrease) the child support order
in place, and frequently represent professional athletes, their spouses, or the child’s mothers with respect to these issues.
After all, many professional athletes will sign a very large contract (so what is the correct child support in such a situation?)
earning significant amounts of money (if not millions of dollars) but then what happens when they no longer are earning what they
earned at the height of their career? We can help with that situation and the law provides an answer.
