Georgia Child Support Commission

On April 22, 2005, House Bill 221 became law. It overhauled Georgia’s child support calculations effective January 1, 2007. A Commission has been appointed that is responsible for its administration, including determining the cost schedule.

If you have comments to make on the state’s child support guidelines, you are urged to send them to your state representative. However, you can send comments on issues and policies regarding administration and interpretation of the law to the Commission’s e-mail address: childsupport@gaaoc.us

The final legislation creating the new child support guidelines – Senate Bill 382 – can be seen here. Its legislative history is here.
