Dallas, GA Child Support Lawyer

Child Support Attorney Serving Atlanta and West Georgia

When child support issues come up during a divorce there are many factors to consider. According to state laws, the income of both parents is taken into account in determining child support. There are defined guidelines that must be used by the court to determine child support payments. In order to vary from these guidelines, there must be satisfactory reason to do so and the reason(s) must be part of the record. Factors that support a variation are:

  • Existing child support orders being paid for other children
  • The cost of child's need for health insurance and child care while the parent is at work
  • Self-employment taxes
  • Social Security benefits which are paid for the child

There are other factors as well that a judge may consider when determining child support. A skilled Dallas, GA divorce lawyer from Howard Law Group can ensure that your case is clearly presented to reach the goals you are seeking. It can be a complex and emotional process. You should have caring and committed legal representation protecting your interests.

Child Support Legal Issues in Dallas, GA

Both parents are responsible for the financial support of the child until the child reaches the age of 18. If the child marries, dies or becomes emancipated prior to age 18, the duty to pay child support is completed. If, however, the child reaches his/her 18th birthday but has not yet graduated from high school, child support obligations continue until graduation from high school as a full time student, or until the age of 20.

There are many variables in determining child support. While modifications can be made later, it is important to establish amounts based on the real circumstances of your life now since child support is a legal obligation that must be fulfilled until formally modified by the court. For many years, the attorneys at the firm have successfully defended and protected the rights of their clients.
