‘My older son is 3 years older than his brother. Once my older son graduates high school will I be able to go back to court in Georgia and have my child support reduced as it would be based on one child instead of two, since my oldest would be graduated and over eighteen?’

Question: Since your son would be reaching the age of majority in Georgia, you can petition the court for modification of both the child support and custody orders, including requesting that the support obligation for your eldest son be terminated.
