How is child support determined?
November 10, 2014
In Arizona, as in most if not all states, standard guidelines are used to determine child support. If the parties agree on what each other’s incomes are, and also agree on what figures to use for medical insurance, day care expenses, and other such figures, the calculation is actually very easy to do in Arizona. If the parents do not agree on these figures, they will first need to have an Arizona judge decide on which figures to use so that the guidelines calculation can be performed. In Arizona, as in many other states, a parent can ask the court to deviate upward or downward from the guideline amount if certain conditions exist.
