Child Support Attorneys in Atlanta
Determining custody and visitation of your children can be one of the most emotionally difficult experiences of your life — after these decisions have been made, you must deal with the financial implications, whether you are seeking child support payments or will be required to pay.
You need an understanding child support attorney to make sure that both the well-being of your children and your financial interests are protected. Child support payments will begin accruing immediately after an order is issued, as part of a divorce or issued separately. It is therefore very important to contact our Atlanta child support lawyer immediately to discuss your concerns.
Protecting Your Children and Your Financial Well-being
Child support is simply the money paid by one parent to the other parent to be used to financially support their child or children — even in cases where the parents have joint custody, one parent may be required to pay child support to the other, depending on individual circumstances. Georgia's child support laws use a joint income model: it is a formula based on both parents' incomes and takes into account considerations such as who pays for:
- Health care insurance costs
- Day care costs
Georgia takes payment of child support very seriously. Unpaid child support payments are required to be paid even when the parent who owes child support files for bankruptcy and/or the child turns 18. The sooner you work with our Atlanta family law attorneys to determine proper child support payments, the sooner you can get your finances in order to prevent accumulating back payments or wage garnishment.
