Macon Child Support Lawyer

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.
