In a June 29, 2018 decision of the Supreme Court of Georgia, a key portion of the Grandparent Visitation Statute of 2012 was held to be unconstitutional.
I'm frequently asked by parents who pay child support if they can demand an accounting from their ex of how exactly the child support money is being spent, as they don't believe it's going to the children (but rather a car, house, etc). This idea is the basis of the song "Gold Digger".
At the end of a long, drawn out legal battle, the judge will enter a final judgment. So, how final is that?
Most family law judgments - whether final or temporary - can be appealed.
When child support is ordered, either after a hearing or by agreement of the parties, is has to be paid. But often, people are unaware of how this is enforced. There are a few ways.
There are two issues surrounding where a case will be filed - jurisdiction and venue. There is a course in law school dedicated almost entirely to these issues (civil procedure), so unfortunately I can't give a comprehensive answer to the question that suits every situation. The general rule is that cases must be filed in the state and county where the person you're filing against lives, but divorce and family law have more exceptions to that rule than probably any other area of law.
This is where you have to take a step back and assess your goals. You can hold out for the best financial terms possible, or you can reach an agreement sooner than later, but it's not usually possible to do both.
