Minimum Wage To Request A Child Support Modification

georgia divorce lawyerQuestion:

Is there a certain amount of money a person is supposed to make on a monthly basis before low-income deviation can be used to modify child support?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Georgia child support laws where I am licensed to practice.

In general, there is no minimum amount a non-custodial parent must make to request a low-income deviation.

Any non-custodial parent can request a low-income deviation and at such time the judge shall take into consideration:

a.) the non-custodial parent’s income and reasonable expenses;

b.) the economic hardship to that parent for requiring the presumptive amount of child support; and

c.) what impact the deviation will have on the custodial parent’s household.

Then the Judge will make a determination as to whether a low-income deviation is appropriate.

Where I practice, any such deviation shall not make the non-custodial parent’s monthly child support amount less then $100 for one child, $150 for two children, $200 for three children, and so on.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with divorce lawyers for men in your jurisdiction.
