How Is Child Support Determined?
The non-custodial parent's income used to be the sole base for determining
child support. However, that is no longer the case. In the state of Georgia,
child support is determined by each parent's gross monthly income,
as well as certain expenses that the child requires. A Georgia Court will
require a Child Support Worksheet to be completed and filed with the court.
Important elements of a Child Support Worksheet include:
- Both parent's gross monthly income
- Health insurance premiums
- Childcare expenses
- Medical expenses
Our team can help you make sure that you are able to receive or pay out
the fairest possible child support amount. We always take into account
the possibilities of any deviations and expenses that fall outside the
traditional child support formula.
Solutions for Complex Disputes
Though the determination for child support is largely based on a formula,
the process is still complex and can many times be confusing for parents.

advice and heavily advocating for you and your child in the courtroom.
It is important to ensure that your child is cared for following a divorce,
and that is why we thoroughly examine your case to make sure that all
issues have been addressed.
