Can Georgia state child...

Can Georgia state child support withhold child support from a parent for any reason? This is regarding the father's tax return money....my daughter says they're holding it. They also will not tell her when they obtained it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

They do HAVE the money and my daughter has been trying to check on it,that's all

Normally, no. Unless the daughter has an outstanding balance/judgment against her with a state or government agency (in which case the money can be intercepted), the state of GA would have no reason to withhold the money from her!
