Arizona Child Support Laws

The rules for making child support payments and their amounts are typically straightforward and simple to follow. Often times, both parents are W-2 earners and payments can be easily calculated by plugging in a salary and number of children. If the case is more complex, a family law court will look at a variety of factors to determine the amount of child support that will be paid to the custodial parent.

Family law courts may take numerous factors into account when making child support decisions, including:

  • The parent's salaries
  • Underemployment of parent
  • Self-employment of parent
  • Earning capacity of parent
  • Ability of the parent to support themselves
  • Number of children
  • Needs of children

Have You Recalculated Your Support Lately?

Just because you were receiving a certain amount of child support in the past does not necessarily mean that this will be the payment amount forever. Child support guidelines in Arizona were changed on June 1, 2011, making it easier for parents to have their payments recalculated. If you have not recalculated your support payments since then, it is in your best interests to do so as soon as possible, as you may be eligible to receive more.
