Arizona Child Support Laws
The Arizona child support guidelines provide a mathematical formula for determining child support. Courts utilize the guidelines as the basis for determining the amount of child support that a parent will pay or receive. Therefore, it is important that these calculations be done correctly.
When retained, one of the services that we will perform on your behalf is the child support calculation. We have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle unique issues that may arise in child support cases, including:
- Imputing income to voluntarily unemployed parents
- Cases involving children with special needs that may involve higher costs of care
- Determining the net income of a self-employed parent
- Other complex child support matters
We work closely with you, take the time to understand your financial information, and work diligently to protect your and your children’s legal rights.
Child Support Modifications
We represent clients who are seeking or opposing a child support modification. If you feel you should be paying less child support or receiving additional child support, contact our attorneys for assistance.
We can perform a child support calculation on your behalf to determine if pursuing or defending against a motion for a child support modification is appropriate. If you have grounds for seeking or defending against a child support modification, we will prepare and make all necessary filings with the court, negotiate with opposing counsel on your behalf to seek a resolution of your child support dispute, and if it becomes necessary, we will vigorously protect your rights before the court.
