Georgia Family Courts:
What You Need to Know About Child Support
In 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
Factors for determining the amount of child support a parent could receive
- 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

protect the integrity of every person we represent. When you come to The
