Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests
Child support is one of the most crucial legal issues facing divorcing or otherwise unmarried parents in Georgia. There may be nothing more personal than your finances, except for your relationship with their children; child support is directly related to both.
I am Rabb Wilkerson, an experienced family law attorney in Warner Robins. I have been representing mothers, fathers and children in family law cases for more than 25 years. I understand how to navigate the family court system to ensure children have the resources they need to thrive regardless of their parents’ relationship status.
How Is Child Support Determined?
The formula for determining child support takes a number of factors into account, including the incomes of each parent as well as the child’s custody situation. In order to make sure a child’s interests are served and that a support order is fair, it is critical to make sure accurate information is used. If you suspect your ex is hiding income to avoid child support, I can partner with accountants and other experts to uncover their true financial situation.
Paternity And Child Support
When a married woman gives birth to a child, her husband’s name will automatically go on the birth certificate. On the flip side, there is no legal presumption of paternity when a child is born out of wedlock. In order to obtain child support, as well as establish custody or visitation rights, paternity must be established. This is most often accomplished by taking a paternity test.
