- Paternity Actions: Paternity actions are filed on behalf of the minor child. Upon a determination of paternity the court will order the Father to pay child support if he is the non-custodial parent.
- In divorce and legitimation cases where there are minor children, child support must be determined. The non-custodial parent will often be required to pay child support to the custodial parent for the benefit of the minor child or children.
- How Child Support is Determined: Georgia is a percentage of income state. This means that child support is determined by a percentage of the parties combined gross incomes and the number of children that the non-custodial parent currently supports. There are additional factors and deviations given when calculating support as well.
