NEW CHILD SUPPORT GUIDELINES

Filed under: Uncategorized — thebigpraetor @ 2:13 pm

Child Support is calculated using a myriad of factors. It is strongly recommended that you see a lawyer about the factors needed to be used in determining the child support in each and every case. Here is the link for the Georgia Court calculator:

Again, remember that the facts that are put into the calculator determine the proper amount or proposed amount of support but it is ultimately in part a decision made by and at the discretion of the Court.

  1. In Alabama, child support is figured using Guidelines set out in legislation. These guidelines can be deviated from for good cause shown and if approved by a Judge, but for the most part, they stick to the formula; it’s pretty cut and dry. This is done not only in the spirit of fairness and equity to keep everyone’s support balanced, but also because of the sheer volume of Domestic cases coming through the Court system. If a Judge had to figure out every situation differently, nothing would ever get done, so they make a set formula to ensure speedy calculation. This is done in numerous other jurisdictions as well. In any event, it is always extremely important to get an Alabama Divorce Attorney . If one is curious about child support in Alabama, there are some up to date Alabama Child Support Calculator (s) out there that will give a pretty close approximation of what your support Order will look like.
