I was awarded Child Custody and Child Support, the Judge said in court he would retroactive the Child Support to when I took over custody (15 months ago) of the 3 children, but on the final order this was not stated. We both are employed with very limited income, I was paying 100% of all the expenses including child care. If I don't receive the retroactive child support my children will suffer the economic impact.
If neither side had an attorney in this case, the Judge most likely had his staff attorney prepare the Final Order from his notes. There is nothing that is required within 10 days. However, the case will be closed 30 days after the Final Order. You can try filing a Motion to Correct the Judgment. The Judge may or may not do so. However, this is not an appealable issue if he refuses. If the amount is substantial, and worth the cost of hiring an attorney, that would be a good idea.
I am exclusively a family law attorney, practicing primarily in the metro Atlanta, Georgia trial courts. However, I handle appeals from anywhere in Georgia.
Did you have the proceeding recorded? Who prepared the order? Is this case in Fulton County case. Who is the Judge. The real question you have is what do I need to put into the Motion for Reconsideration. Please consult with an attorney as this will save you time and money.
