CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS

Georgia law now requires both parents to be financially responsible for their children. In the event of a divorce, one parent (the non-custodial parent) will pay child support to the other parent (the custodial parent).

The Georgia Legislature has established a child support statute for determining the amount of child support that the non-custodial parent will pay (O.C.G.A. § 19-6-15).  The statute provides a formula for calculating basic child support based upon both parents’ income and the number of children.  However, the statute also provides for a number of variations from this formula based upon the particular circumstances of each parent’s case.

Pat Claiborne has 30 years experience in Augusta, Georgia, working with the child support formulas.  And, in particular, the variations from the basic formula.  We will work hard for your right to receive or pay a fair amount of child support payments.
