Atlanta, GA asked in Family Law and Child Support for Georgia

Q: My ex husband’s parenting time is this weekend and he is declining to have the kids. Is he required to pay for that?

He should have the kids for this weekend. He only has them per our parenting plan two weekends per month. He said he cannot have them this weekend. Does he have to pay me additional child support for these two days that he is refusing? If so, how do I enforce that?

A: He does not. You could file a modification and ask for more child support if he consistently does not exercise his parenting time. Contact us to schedule a consultation if you would like to discuss your options further.
