The state of Georgia strives to ensure that its citizens are financially protected after divorce. To this end, courts may award child support. As your Augusta child support lawyer, I will work with you to obtain the financial support you need to raise your children.
At my law firm, I can help you establish an initial child support order, modify a temporary order or judgment, or seek enforcement of an established order (contempt). Contact my firm online to set up your initial consultation.
Helping You With Your Child Support Issues
Child support in Georgia is governed by guidelines that consider the income of each party, the child custody arrangement and the number of children. However, the courts may deviate from the guidelines for many reasons, including if the parties have a nontraditional child custody arrangement, if the combined gross income of both parents is greater than $250,000, if a parent has extraordinary travel expenses related to visitation, or if it is in the best interests of the child.
The goal of child support orders is to ensure that children are not financially disadvantaged by divorce or separation. The court realizes, however, that two households cannot be run on the same amount of money as one. At my Augusta Georgia law firm, I will guide you through this process and ensure that your rights, as well as the best interests of your children, are protected.
