Determining Child Support In Georgia
The Marietta family law attorneys of Marsh & Frost can assist you in navigating the process of establishing, modifying or enforcing child support. Our veteran legal team can provide the experience you need on your side to help make sense of your rights and obligations.
How The Process Works
Child support is determined by Georgia child support guidelines, based on gross income of both parents, along with certain other factors. There are opportunities for deductions and additions to be made, and we can help you seek a fair amount to either pay or receive.
In some instances, divorce proceedings fail to set up child support arrangements. When this happens, we can help you with establishment needs and obtain the child support you are entitled to receive.
We Can Help Modify Child Support Orders And Enforce Your Rights
As life situations change over the years, there may come a need for the child support amount to be modified through legal petition. This can be because of factors like a raise, job promotion, medical emergency or change in the child’s needs.
Whether you are seeking greater child support from your former spouse or wishing to protect yourself from the petition filed by your former spouse, our lawyers can represent your interests in court.
Should your spouse refuse or be unable to pay the mandated child support amount, we are prepared to assist you in meeting him or her in court to seek civil contempt charges. Ultimately, the money due is for the good of your child. We seek to help you obtain the money that will benefit the children.
