Understanding Child Support Modifications In Georgia
In Georgia, after parents of a child or multiple children divorce, there can be a court-ordered child support payment system put in place. The courts’ goal after divorce especially, one including children, is to guarantee or try to guarantee that children’s lives are affected minimally overall. Child support payments are one way that a court tries and guarantees the children’s best interests.
There are many considerations that courts look to when determining child support and other matters during a divorce and after. These considerations can range from the income of one or more of the parents, the lifestyles the children are accustomed to, and any major changes that can occur after a divorce. This article will go over some factors the court looks at when determining support before and after the initial agreement and how to modify child support payments.
If your ex stops paying child support then you have a few remedies to consider. You should document the lack of support and make sure to contact your family law attorney. A judge will determine the best course of action and contempt of court is possible for enforcing child support.
