Child support disputes are some of the most common issues that come up in Georgia family law courts. If a divorce involves minor children, there is a good chance that one parent or the other will be ordered to pay child support. Or, if couples with minor children were never married, there is also a good chance that one of the parents will pursue a child support order. Sometimes, when a child support order is in place, the paying parent thinks that the amount or frequency of payments needs to be adjusted, or vice versa. Each of these situations, among other examples, are unique and require special attention to navigate the issues.
Challenges involving child support
Although child support issues can become contentious and, in some cases, involve the rulings of a family law judge, that doesn’t mean that pursuing solutions to these issues isn’t worth the effort. After all, child support orders are put in place to attempt to ensure that the child in question is receiving much-needed financial support, and to recognize that both parents have important roles in raising the child.
In some situations, parents can work toward out-of-court agreements that are then ratified by the family law court. However, with such a contentious issue as child support can be, the family law court oftentimes needs to step in to make decisions. That is when it is crucial to be able to put forward sound legal arguments for your stance in the matter.
