How Is Child Support Calculated?

Since child support laws vary from state to state, it’s advisable to contact family lawyers near Cumming to determine the amount of child support you might receive or pay. Parents who live in Georgia could also use the child support calculator tools available on the family court website. Child support is determined by many factors, including both parents’ income, both parents’ percentage of the basic child support obligation (BCSO), and monthly expenses for childcare and healthcare.
