Affirming the judgment of the Superior Court of Gwinnett County in the parties’ divorce case, the Supreme Court held that the evidence supported the jury’s findings that the husband’s total monthly income, including funds from his two landscaping businesses, was at least $5000 and that special circumstances – a disabled child with extraordinary medical expenses, educational costs, the husband’s suppression of income, the wife’s limited income and the children’s insurance costs – justified an upward modification of child support to $1,375 per child per month. The Court also held that the husband could not complain about banking statements, which his counsel approved, before allowing them to go out with the jury.
