The best advice I could give someone going through a divorce is 1) bite your tongue when you are about to say something inappropriate, 2) don’t fight over pots and pans, and 3) put your children first (and this should be #1).

For example, suppose the custodial parent has a gross income of $53,000 and the non-custodial parent has a gross income of $40,000. Although the custodial parent makes more money than the non-custodial parent, that does not absolve the non-custodial parent of their child support obligation; however, it does lower it somewhat. The policy in Georgia provides for the child to receive the same amount of support from each parent had the parents stayed together. Hence, the incomes are combined to equal $93,000. Tables, based on economic data throughout the state, have been created that help us determine what the child suppport amount for a seperated/divorce couple making $93,000. After determining the base child support amount, the non-custodial parent pays their pro rata share. In this particular example, the non-custodial parent would pay 43% of the base child support amount.
Of course, there are several deviations that can be considered with may lower or increase the child support amount. These topics will be covered in later blog entries.]]>
