Every case is different but many facets of economic analysis are typically needed for all cases. These include:
All states are required by federal regulations (to obtain monies from federal child support programs) to have presumptive but rebuttable child support guidelines. Presumptive awards are based on state formulas as a required starting point for a court award on child support for a given case. However, each party can argue for a rebuttal or deviation award based on each case’s specific circumstances.

Rogers Economics specializes in analysis and exhibits for high income cases. Rogers Economics has provided expert support for both custodial and noncustodial parents in high income cases. Recent appellate opinion has made high income deviations more difficult to obtain in Georgia, requiring specific steps for the deviation. Other states have similar requirements for high income cases. Detailed analysis for such cases make awards more compelling.
Rogers Economics can provide an independent review of proposed worksheets and proposed orders. Rogers Economics has more than a decade of experience working with attorneys to ensure that proposed awards conform to statutory procedure and have appropriate exhibits to support arguments.
Alimony issues can crop up with child support or can be independent if there are no children in a divorce case. Rogers Economics can assist with impact analysis of alternative alimony awards.
Georgia and other states require the filing with the court of child support worksheet and financial affidavits. Rogers Economics can expedite completion of these documents based on streamlined and informative procedures. Emphasis is given to documenting the basis for input into these documents for use in court when explaining the basis for the worksheet and/or financial affidavit.
