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