Passionately Solving Legal Problems For Over A Decade

Albany Child Support Lawyer

Protecting Clients' Financial Interests And Their Children's Welfare

In addition to child custody and visitation, parents going through divorce or separation often have concerns about child support. At Thomas V. Duck III, P.C., our legal team provides comprehensive support for parents involved in child custody and support disputes. We represent parents going through divorce as well as unmarried parents in Albany and throughout southwest Georgia.

Understanding Child Support In Georgia

Like most states, Georgia family courts use statutory guidelines when determining child support. These guidelines are calculated using a number of different factors, including:

  • The number of children requiring support
  • The individual net incomes of each parent
  • The level of education and earning potential each parent has, if one parent has been a stay-at-home mom or dad
  • Which parent will claim the children on his or her taxes
  • Which parent will provide health insurance for the children
  • Extra care costs a child may require such as a child with special needs

As an experienced Albany child support attorney, Tommy Duck helps clients understand the parameters of Georgia's child support guidelines and how they may apply to their unique situations. Clients can then take the appropriate steps to ensure their children are provided for as well as minimize any unfair assessment.

Experienced Dougherty County Attorney Handling Child Support Modifications

Divorced parents will be responsible for paying child support until their children reach the age of 18. However, if you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances — such as job loss, for example — you may be eligible to seek child support modification. We can help you determine whether your situation meets the legal requirements for seeking modification.

We also represent those involved in child support enforcement actions. Whether you have been falsely accused of failing to pay child support or you require legal action to enforce your right to receive it, our lawyer has the practical experience and trial skills to protect your rights in court.
