Georgia Child Support

State divorce laws don't set specific factors to consider when determining child support.

Protect your relationship with your child during divorce.

When parents are filing for divorce, there are specific child support guidelines that the divorce court will follow if the parents can't agree on child support in a divorce settlement. The special circumstances that will be considered include:

  • Age of the children
  • Child's medical costs or extraordinary needs
  • Educational costs
  • Daycare costs
  • Shared physical custody arrangements
  • Hidden income of a parent
  • Custodial parent's income
  • Contributions of each parent
  • A parent's support obligations to another household
  • Extreme economic circumstances
  • Any extraordinary needs of a parent
  • Historic spending levels of the family
  • Cost of health and accident insurance coverage for the child
  • Extraordinary visitation travel expenses
