Child Support

Child support in Georgia is governed by specific guidelines which require that the total gross income of both parents be considered. The courts must consider all income sources before any tax deductions in ascertaining child support payments. Some of the income sources the courts may consider are salaries, bonuses, commissions, income from rental properties, severance income, unemployment benefits, and social security benefits.  

When the total income for both parents is inputted on the child support worksheet and the number of children is entered, a presumptive child support amount appears. This presumptive child support amount is the total amount that should cost each month for the children. However, there are deviations which can apply to either increase or decrease the child support payment.  

The attorneys at Shadrix, Lane & Parmer, P.C. help clients understand the how the worksheets and deviations work.
