Child support in Georgia is governed by specific guidelines which require that the total gross income of both parents be considered. The courts consider all income sources before any tax deductions in deciding child support payments. Some of the income sources the courts may consider are:
When the total income for both parents and the number of children is entered on the child support worksheet, a presumptive child support amount is calculated. This presumptive child support amount is the total amount that should cost each parent that month for the children.
However, there are deviations which can apply to either increase or decrease the child support payment. We will help you understand how the worksheets and deviations work. More importantly, we have been successful in assisting our clients in convincing the court the appropriate amount of child support.
