Back child support is still collectable after child turns 18

Many divorced parents in Georgia have child support obligations that have been the subject of a court order. If a parent fails to make monthly child support payments, the parent will continue to owe the amounts that are in arrears, even after the child has reached adulthood.

The benefits of co-parenting after a divorce in Georgia

It's well-known that divorces are often tough for the children involved, but in some cases, things are made harder by the actions of parents.
