Child Support

Phoenix Child Support Lawyer

Navigate Child Support Laws with a Trusted Attorney in Scottsdale

When it comes to divorce, there is often little that can be agreed upon between former spouses. One of the most contentious issues is often how much child support will be paid and to whom. While this issue can often be resolved by the parties themselves, it is also one that can be handled by the family court system if the parties are unable to reach an agreement.

How is Child Support Calculated in Arizona?

Arizona family courts determine child support based on the parents' net monthly income and the number of children involved. 

Courts use the federal poverty guideline as a starting point for child support, and then make adjustments based on the following:

  • Extraordinary medical, dental, or other health-related costs
  • Extraordinary educational costs
  • Extraordinary daycare costs
  • Reasonable housing costs
  • Reasonable transportation costs
  • Any other costs that may be relevant

Courts also consider the income of a child's other parent when setting child support. In addition, courts may impute income to a parent or order a parent to obtain job training if they are unemployed or underemployed.
