I am owed over 10,000 in back pay but he still not working or making regular child support payments how do I claim the back pay in the state of Georgia?
You can file a claim through the office of child support services in the county where you live, or you can retain private counsel to file for you. The best you can hope for is an order for incarceration that will require him to pay a significant purge prior to being released. Good luck to you.

I agree with my colleague. Your options are to file with the child support services office or to retain an attorney to help you with the proper course of action.
