In Georgia, parents are legally obligated to provide financial support for their children. This is why issues of child support must be sorted out during the divorce process. While the state uses a worksheet to determine the amount of child support that should be paid, it is important to have a skilled lawyer protect your rights and those of your children.

Georgia Child Support Calculator
Georgia law requires parents to support their children until the age of 18 or high school graduation, whichever occurs later. While parents are not required to support their children during college, this can be negotiated and included in the final divorce decree. At this point, it would be legally enforceable.
The state uses a child support calculator, which takes the incomes of both parents and applies it to a basic table. However, this is only a basic guide and many factors can affect child support obligations — such as the cost of health insurance for the child, the noncustodial parent’s parenting time and educational costs.
Burns Law Group, PC, works with our clients closely to ensure the whole picture is accounted for and the resulting child support agreement or order is fair and reasonable.
