In Georgia, the level of child support is based on a statutory formula. The incomes of the parents and the residency time of the child with each parent can affect the child support level, as can certain expenses and needs of the child. Edwards Family Law is an experienced family law firm that understands child support law and how to obtain results through the court system. We represent clients in matters involving:

Are You Paying Too Much or Receiving Too Little Child Support?
In January 2007, Georgia enacted wide-sweeping changes in child support law. Both parties’ incomes are now entered into a formula to assist in determining support. The new law means that many child support amounts should be adjusted. If you believe you are paying too much support or receiving too little support, call our experienced attorneys today. We can seek a modification in the child support level for you. Are you a custodial parent but do not have a current child support order in place? Often, agencies can take up to a year to establish your support, but we can often establish support within 30 to 45 days.
Fathers’ Rights and Child Support
Setting the child support level is not just a mechanical calculation. If you are the non-custodial parent and the custodial parent is requesting child support or an increase in child support, we can assist you in setting a fair amount of support. Often, the other party or agency will attempt to set child support based on inaccurate salary or other information, which results in an unfair child support determination. Edwards Family Law is a law firm that works to assert fathers’ rights. We will work to obtain the right child support level for you.
