Georgia Family Courts:
What You Need to Know About Child Support

Child Support GeorgiaIn order to calculate the amount of child support a parent could receive in the State of Georgia, there are specific guidelines to which separating couples must adhere. Provided by the Georgia Child Support Commission, the guidelines can be used to determine a fair amount of child support. The guidelines are based on an "income shares model," which calculates what the child would have been receiving if both parents were living under the same roof and using a combined income to provide for the child.

Factors for determining the amount of child support a parent could receive may include:

  • Gross income of both parents (including salary, wages, commission, gifts, bonuses, overtime, severance, retirement, interest, and other income)
  • Self-employment income
  • If one parent is paying a preexisting child support order
  • If one parent is supporting his or her children living in the home who are not the subject of the support case or a preexisting child support order
  • Healthcare insurance premiums or other work-related child care costs
  • Other special circumstances, including educational expenses or other special needs

The amount of child support will range case by case. Because families are unique and each has their own set of needs, we make sure to honor and protect the integrity of every person we represent.
