Child Support under Georgia Law
Georgia law dictates that parents shall support their children until they reach the age of 18, marry, graduate from high school, enter the military, or emancipate. During that time, non-custodial parents must pay the determined amount in weekly or monthly increments. They may also be responsible for additional funds for medical and dental bills.
Child support payments are based on the combined income of both parents through a state-mandated formula.
Many factors may be considered by the court in determining the final payment amount such as:
- The number of children being supported
- How custody has been awarded and arranged
- The ages of the children
- The medical expenses of each child
- The educational or daycare expenses of each child
- Whether the parents have financial obligations to other children outside the marriage
- Other financial obligations of the parents
- The custodial parent’s income from all sources
