The Child Support Commission would like your feedback on the changes that were made to the Child Support Guidelines during the 2017 Legislative Session, particularly including, but not limited to the mandatory use of multiple worksheets in cases with more than one child. Please provide your opinion by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your thoughts will be most helpful as our Statute Review Committee discusses these issues looking toward the 2018 session of the General Assembly.
Welcome to the Georgia Child Support Commission Website
The Georgia Commission on Child Support consists of fifteen members, appointed by the Governor. The duties of the Commission are outlined in O.C.G.A. § 19-6-53 and include establishing and regularly reviewing child support guidelines, development and maintenance of the Georgia Child Support Calculator, recommending legislation, providing training throughout the State to judges, attorneys, and the public, and many other duties.
Purpose: “There is created the Georgia Child Support Commission for the purpose of studying and collecting information and data relating to awards of child support and to create and revise the child support obligation table. The commission shall be responsible for conducting a comprehensive review of the child support guidelines, economic conditions, and all matters relevant to maintaining effective and efficient child support guidelines and modifying child support orders that will serve the best interest of Georgia's children and take into account the changing dynamics of family life. Further, the commission shall determine whether adjustments are needed to the child support obligation table taking into consideration the guidelines set forth in Code Section 19-6-53. Nothing contained in the commission's report shall be considered to authorize or require a change in the child support obligation table without action by the General Assembly.” O.C.G.A. § 19-6-50
