Atlanta Child Support Lawyers

How is Georgia child support determined?

Child support laws have evolved over the years and have become more dependent on specific family situations. In Georgia, we use an income shares model that utilizes the income of both parents in arriving at the amount of child support. Child support worksheets are completed in each case that will provide a calculation of child support.

In addition to the income of each party, the following factors may also be considered:

  • Health insurance
  • Childcare costs
  • Travel expenses involved in visitation
  • Mortgage payments
  • Medical expenses
  • Extracurricular activities for the child
  • Other extraordinary expenses

At Peterson & Harris, our divorce lawyers in Atlanta are committed to each client's case and helping each family gather all of the necessary documentation and evidence to build a solid and sound case before the court.
