How Is Child Support Calculated In Georgia?
After a divorce involving children, child support is an important factor for ensuring that a child’s financial needs are covered. This is an obligation, not an option, for the parent who is assigned the responsibility of paying support.
Child support is calculated according to a set of guidelines set by the state. While it is possible to deviate from these guidelines should both parents agree, paying child support is mandatory. If you do not supply this important financial contribution to your child’s life, you could be held in contempt of court.
