Information entered in the calculator is used to determine a presumptive amount of child support that may be deviated from to reach a final child support amount. Printable electronic forms are produced for filing with the court consisting of a Worksheet and Schedules. Begin by entering information for your Worksheet on the Basic Information Worksheet tab. Helpful instructions are included to assist as you navigate the calculator.
Georgia Income Deduction Order
Income Deduction and Withholding is a process by which a parent who is ordered by a court to pay child support has payments withheld directly from his or her pay. Information provided on this website will assist you with correctly implementing income deduction under Georgia and federal law.
Before income can be deducted for child support, a separate Income Deduction Order (IDO) must be signed by a judge and filed with the clerk of court. (See Uniform Superior Court Rule 24.11.)
