One of the most challenging aspects of any divorce is child custody and support payments. When parents are unable to agree on custody, the court will make a determination based on what is best for the child. Support payments may be ordered by the courts to be paid to the custodial parent.
Whether you have full custody or shared custody of your children, you may have an order in place entitling you to receive child support. Since Georgia courts use a formula for determining child support based on the income of both parents, the order may have to be changed at a later date.
Modification may be requested at any time there is a substantial change in income due to job loss, or promotion. However, once a modification has been requested, future requests cannot be made for two years.
