  • Pro Se Petition for Release from Incarceration for Child Support Debt PDF

    The attached petition may be used by indigent parents who have been jailed for nonpayment of child support debt following civil child support contempt proceedings initiated by the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS). The only relief requested in the petition is release from incarceration due to an inability to pay. By filing this petition, you are asking a judge to release you from custody; it will be up to the judge to decide when you will be released. The attached petition does not challenge the finding of contempt or any other aspect of the underlying child support order. Moreover, incarcerated parents who have the ability to pay their purge fee should not use this form. Content Detail

  • Safety-focused Parenting Plan doc

    In any case where the court decides custody, the parents must file a Parenting Plan. A Parenting Plan sets out the details of how the parents will share the parenting responsibilities after a divorce or separation. If the parents can agree they can file a join parenting plan. If the parents don't agree on all the issues, each parent can file a separate parenting plan. A standard form is available for parties to use, but Parenting Plans should be individualized to consider the unique issues in every family. If there is any history of family violence in the relationship, the parent may need a Safety-Focused Parenting Plan. This parenting plan includes special considerations on visitation and safety where there is family violence. This plan should also be changed to meet the family's individual needs. The most dangerous time in a family violence relationship is when the victim is trying to leave. A batterer can use this as an excuse to escalate the violence. A victim should contact a shelter group to help make a plan to stay safe. Content Detail
