However, the commission is a little slow to update material.

Rogers Economics is contributing material to the commission for it to consider for self-support calculations and for parenting time adjustments.  The below has links to much of this material.

The GA Child Support Commission began work with its economic study committees on parenting time and low-income self-support reserves.  The below reflect related information from either the study committees or Rogers Economics.
