All children deserve financial support from both parents, which is a presumption child support orders all over the country address. Although each state has the ability to create its own child support guidelines, many adhere to the same standards, including at what age a child support order will terminate.
This question should have an easy answer, but families and family law are changing in today's world, and things are sometimes not as clear as they ought to be. Virtually all aspects of family law are determined by state law, and the laws differ widely on some things, especially those that are controversial.
A lawsuit, filed by the Atlanta-based Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) for six Georgia parents who have been jailed for delinquent child support payments, demands that Georgia provide lawyers for the parents at contempt hearings.
