Georgia Parents: Not Getting Child Support Like You Should?

by The Anderson Firm, LLC

The concept is simple: both parents should financially contribute, from each’s ability, to a child’s needs. In many circumstances — after a divorce, or separation of unmarried parents — a legal order needs to be established that ensures the financial security of a particular child or children.

Just because an order for child support is in place does not mean the paying parent will automatically comply. If you are the receiving spouse in a child support order and stop receiving payments from your ex, you have options for getting the money your child needs. Remember: you shouldn’t feel guilty for putting your foot down and demanding payments to which you and your child are legally entitled. Unpaid child support is referred to in the legal system as “child support arrears.”
