    Is the case in Florida pending or is it a final order? In Georgia if you have a child support order for a child not involved in the case you are filing (a child from a previous marriage or in another state like your case) you can get credit for the amount paid for the other child. That information needs to be added to Schedule B and then the amount you pay goes into the over child support calculation.

    Unfortunately if the state can find someone other than it to give you support they are going to go after that person. However, when you go through child support enforcement, all you are doing is getting money. It does not give him any custody or visitation rights. What it does do is open a can of worms. You may be off his radar but now that you are after money he may want visitation rights. So you do need to weigh these options. In Georgia, we use the best interests of the child standard. So if...

    Yes. If overtime is something you consistently receive as income, you should average what you receive annually and put an average monthly amount on the worksheet on Schedule A.

    I agree that you should get an attorney. Discovery is serious and it must be answered on time and truthfully. If you chose to move forward representing yourself, you should answer each question fully and to the best of your knowledge. If you do not know an answer, state that-do not leave it blank. It is best to re-type the question and then fill in your answer. Same with the Notice to Produce-produce in an organized manner the documents you have and make sure you state if a question does not...

    You can file it electronically or on paper but I would suggest doing it on the computer, printing it out, and attaching it to your documents. The form on the Georgia Child Support Commission website is very helpful and easy to use.

  6. Can jurisdiction for child custody be held in one state and jurisdiction over child support be held in another?

    That is entirely possible that 2 states are involved. You got it right by citing the UCCJEA which states custody matters are generally heard where the children reside. Often if a custody case comes about, you can counterclaim on that action with a child support issue (perhaps if visitation is changed you will need to modify child support to accomodate for travel expenses or something similar). However, if it is an entirely separate action regarding child support, it is often filed where the...
