new georgia child support law--change it

Ostensibly, the new Georgia child support law was written to narrow the equality gap between custodial and non-custodial parents, the latter being the persistent bearer of the short end. In reality, that gap has widened. Under the new law, non-custodial parents are punished severely for working hard, while the government enables the custodial parent\'s chronic unemployment. Oddly enough, (in a lot of cases) the non-custodial parent would pay less if the court would take into account his (or her) income alone and not the combined income. Jurists speak about \"the best interests of the child,\" but that\'s code for \"bend over and kindly take out your wallet\". I say, what about the interests of the other children not before the court That is, a child whom you owe support (due to a previous court order or a general moral obligation) is treated as a deduction in your income calculation and not given the same consideration as the children in the case under immediate review--\"I\'m sorry, little Timmy, no bike for you, the state says you don\'t matter and that golf lesson, forget about it
