An introduction to child support

It's no secret that dealing with divorce in Georgia can be challenging. For couples who have children together, the divorce process may be especially complicated and emotional. This can be a frustrating situation for everyone involved. Children might not understand what is happening, so their emotions could run wild. Similarly, parents may struggle to determine how to best handle the issues they now have to face because of the divorce proceedings.

One of the primary issues facing couples who are separating is determining how child support will work. Typically, the noncustodial parent will be required to pay child support to the custodial parent. Regardless of which parent receives primary custody, child support arrangements can be tricky.

The primary goal with child support arrangements is to ensure that the children involved do not suffer negative side effects as a result of the divorce. For example, some noncustodial parents may be forgetful when it comes to financial support. Child support payments can ensure this doesn't become an issue that hinders the child's development, social well-being or emotional security.

When a divorce is imminent, it is vital to seek assistance from an attorney who understands the separation process. If one spouse has a higher income or more valuable assets than the other party, they may be concerned about how child support payments will be determined. It's important to speak with an attorney who can offer guidance and consultation on the most effective ways to deal with custody arrangements and child support. It's the lawyer's job to help ensure the best outcome possible for a client and their family.
