Legal Guidance For Child Support Issues
When parents separate, issues surrounding the children are often front and center. In addition to determining custody and visitation schedules, there are also issues concerning the financial support of the children. The state of Georgia has guidelines in place which can help you determine how much support you can expect to pay or receive. The biggest determining factor is the income of both parents. However, sometimes there are other factors that may need to be addressed, and things can become complicated quickly. That is why it is important to seek help from an experienced lawyer who can help you resolve any potential disputes.
