The Office of Child Support Services governs the Georgia Child support law.
The Child support guidelines lay down compulsory child support for a minor child (under 18) of divorced parents.
- The child support amount shall compute as a fixed percentage of income earned by the parents.
- The gross income will be adjusted with necessary expenses, taxes, and other deductions to arrive at the final support amount.
- The non-custodial parent will have to bear additional expenses about maintaining the child taken care of by the custodial parent.
