Georgia Child Support Plan Hearing

Georgia parents got a chance to speak out yesterday about the proposed plan to change child support in Georgia, set to take effect July 1. Everybody knows child support awards will be going down; the only question is how much. Here’s a story about it from the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The new plan will bring Georgia’s plan into closer alignment with those used in surrounding states that consider the income of both parents rather than basing the award on the income of only the non-custodial parent. Yesterday’s hearing was the first of four scheduled around the state.
