In Georgia, child support is determined based on child support worksheets that were adopted by the Georgia legislature. And it takes into account the income of both of the parties and the expenses of the children along with who has primary custody and who has secondary custody. Once child support has been established in Georgia, you can modify it. And that happens when either the person paying the child support has a change in their income, either up or down, or the needs of the children have changed, normally to be greater needs, or if the income of the recipient party has gone up or down. If you can show a change in financial circumstances here in Georgia, you can modify child support.
At the Claiborne Firm, we don’t handle hundreds and hundreds of cases. We represent a smaller number of clients and do a better job for them. That means that in your divorce case or your custody case, we have the time to look at what’s going on in your case because not all cases are the same. And sometimes having that extra time to think about a case can help come up with a creative approach, not just what everybody would do in this situation approach. At the Claiborne Firm, we litigate the cases that matter the most.
