Macon Child Support Lawyer

Contextual Image

Whether you have an obligation to pay child support or you are entitled to receive it, you want the amount calculated fairly. Those payments can be a significant portion of your monthly finances.

I am Carmel W. Sanders, a child support lawyer in Macon, Georgia. I represent child support cases in connection with divorce as well as paternity actions. The child support calculation can be complex, and it is in your financial interest to seek a lawyer's help.

Georgia Child Support Guidelines

The Georgia child support formula calculates the amount of support based on:

  • The incomes of the both parents
  • Which parent has primary child custody
  • The number of overnight visits the child has with the noncustodial parent each year
  • Health insurance premiums and day care costs
  • Any special needs the child may have

If you or your spouse is self-employed or owns a business, determining income can require a certain amount of detective work. When necessary, I hire forensic accountants and other experts to ensure that the income is stated accurately.

Since child custody can affect child support, I am prepared to help you protect your financial interests when negotiating a child custody arrangement with your spouse.

I also handle child support modifications.
