When parents separate, many issues have to be settled or decided. The most important of these decisions concern the children: where will they live, how to maintain their standard of living, how both parents can continue their loving and supportive relationship even though the children are not with them full time. Child support is a very important aspect of these separation issues, as children who are not supported financially by both parents often sink into poverty, and their well-being may decline as a result.

Chief Justice Hugh P. Thompson has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Conference of Chief Justices, the national organization that represents the highest judicial officers from every state in the country, as well as from the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.
"Georgia leads the nation in the number of adults under some sort of correctional control.... We owe people a better way of managing our society's problems...and the needle is moving in the right direction, but we need to do even more....we have to start our reform efforts in our schools to help our most at risk children."
Quote from Judge Michael Boggs, Co-Chair of the Criminal Justice Reform Council.
When Judge Sara Doyle was elected to the Court of Appeals in 2008, she had little idea that by 2015 she would be Chief Judge. On June 24, 2015, in a standing-room only courtroom filled with family, friends, and peers on the Court of Appeals, justices of the Supreme Court, former appellate judges, trial judges, federal judges, legislators, and others, Judge Doyle was sworn-in as the 28th Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of Georgia.
