UNDERCOFLER, Presiding Justice.
This is a suit by the wife for modification of child support. The trial court granted the wife's petition, ordered the husband to pay twenty dollars per week child support, and denied the husband's motion for summary judgment. He appeals. We affirm.
The husband and wife were divorced on May 2, 1975. An agreement entered into between the parties was made the judgment of the court. Therein the parties had agreed that the wife would obtain complete title to their business, a package store, in lieu of child support.
The husband appeals from the denial of his motion for summary judgment. He contends Code Ann. § 30-222 allows a petition for modification of child support only
Appellee wife on the other hand denies having received a lump sum award of child support and claims that the contract is void as against public policy because the lump sum award to her amounted to a waiver of child support. Livsey v. Livsey, 229 Ga. 368 (191 S.E.2d 859) (1972). We agree and affirm the award of child support by the trial court. Since there was no valid award of child support the court was authorized to modify the divorce decree. A father is obligated to provide support for his child. Code Ann. § 74-105. See Garrett v. Garrett, 172 Ga. 812 (159 SE 255) (1931); Barrow v. State, 87 Ga.App. 572 (74 S.E.2d 467) (1953).
Judgment affirmed. All the Justices concur.
