Support in Georgia typically terminates at age 18. Why do you still have a child support payment?
2 of my 5 children are under 18 and in school

You can file for modification to the child support order to reflect your current income and account for the mother's income under the new guidelines.Child support is subject to modification at any time there is a substantial change in financial circumstances of either the parents or the child. Until the court grants the modification you will need to continue to make your regularly-scheduled paymentsPlease use the REPLY button if you have any questions concerning my answer.

and I have to go to paying what is ordered and adding as much as I can to pay back. I ran IT for the state of Ga. for DHR and the Office of Child Support was one of th ebiggest customers in IT. I have never shyed away for paying plus some.
yes you will need to continue to make the payments until the court orders otherwise
I understand that completely, but do you know of anything she might do against me while I try and get back on my feet (as long as I am paying the court ordered amount? Also would it make any sense for me to take her back to court since the laws in Ga changed after our divorce?
Yes it seems that it would make a lot of sense for you to take her back to court. Her income would be considered under the new guidelines. There is nothing that she can do while you are making your court order payments
u still there?
have I answered your question
I am a very laidback guy and have lived over the years with parents and sister. They still live in the home, they still go evry year to Florida and quite frankly I'm tired of being used by both her and my kids. I have tried to get the youngest two to join me on Sundays for church and she always comes up with a reason they can't go. I have decided that I will tell her that I expect for her to abide by my visitation rights and that she can pick this weekend or the next for me to start seeing them. That will at least resolve part of the question regarding church..
I am saving all hateful txt and emails, just to have, but I do not put anything past her..
Your last thoughts and thank you for your thoughts..
My advice to you is to adhere to the court order and exercise your visitation rights. You may also petition the court to modify the support
