Child Support


Guidance in Child Support Matters in Georgia

 How is child support determined in Georgia? 

Child support laws have evolved over the years and have become more dependent on specific family situations. In Georgia, we use an income shares model that utilizes the income of both parents in arriving at the amount of child support. Child support worksheets are completed in each case that will provide a calculation of child support.  In addition to the income of each party, the following factors may also be considered: 

  • Health insurance
  • Child care costs
  • Travel expenses involved in visitation
  • Mortgage payments
  • Medical expenses
  • Extra-curricular activities for the child
  • Other extraordinary expenses
