Child Support is the amount of money to be paid to the custodial parent. This can be court ordered or agreed to by the parties. Georgia uses the combined income method and takes into account combined gross of both parents. The money is then reapportioned to create the child support obligation. Usually this is a monthly payment that is paid until the child reaches 18 years of age. Once ordered by he court child support can be enforced though contempt actions and garnishments and income deduction orders.
It is essential that the parties obtain accurate financial information of the other parent to insure that the child support obligation is fair. The attorneys at Crawford & Boyle can help their clients obtain this crucial information. Additionally as time goes financial situations change and the amount child support needs to be increased or decreased and our attorneys can file an action to change this amount.
