In most cases, child support is money paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. These payments are generally made until the child turns eighteen or graduates from high school unless the parties have made other arrangements with the help of their lawyers. Georgia recently revised its child support laws. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances we can help modify the original child support order. Such substantial changes could be an increase or decrease in a parent’s income; or a significant change in the financial needs of the child, perhaps resulting from a recent injury or illness, or changes in education changes in education costs.

A knowledgeable and experienced attorney, such as Thomas, can provide efficient, personalized service to assist you in the collection of court ordered child support. In some cases, attorney fees can even be assessed against the opposing party. Collection of child support is oftentimes difficult and tedious. If the non-custodial parent doesn’t pay, he or she risks a number of consequences including possible jail time. Justice requires that innocent children receive their fair portion of both parents’ resources to maintain their health and well being.
Whether you are the custodial parent or the non-custodial parent it is important to have legal representation to make sure your interests and the interests of your child(ren) are protected. Your goal and ours is to guarantee that the amount of child support required is fair, adequate and appropriate.
