Child Support Lawyers in LaGrange, Georgia Put Your Child’s Interests First
Helping you understand child support guidelines in Georgia
It is important to have a clear understanding of Georgia child support laws. Georgia requires both parents to contribute child support payments until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from high school. Georgia also institutes an income shares model, which takes the gross income of both parents into account, as opposed to determining the amount of child support payments based on a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s gross income. Our LaGrange attorneys are well-versed in the complicated guidelines surrounding Georgia child support payments. We can ensure that your child’s future is financially secure.
Georgia child support modification and enforcement
Child support can be affected if the needs of the child change or a parent can no longer pay due to illness or job loss. In these circumstances, a parent may file a modification action. If you are faced with a situation in which you need to modify your payments, our divorce lawyers can walk you through all the steps of documenting your financial situation or health issue.
While a modification allows for a parent to alter the amount of child support payments, there is no excuse for failure to pay child support after having been ordered to do so. If your spouse has neglected to pay child support, we can represent you to make sure that you receive the payment to which you are entitled. Likewise, if you have been falsely accused of failing to pay child support, our family law attorneys can provide you with a solid defense.
