What Are Your Parental Rights in Arizona?

In the state of Arizona, the parent with primary care, in most cases, receives child support from the other parent. There are numerous factors that are incorporated into how much and how often a parent will pay, so it is crucial to consult with a family lawyer well-versed in Arizona child support cases to fully represent you and prioritize your needs in a child support plan.

The court will factor salary and income streams from the noncustodial parent, as well as take a look into the history of child support payments to determine the amount. It is our belief that whether you are the custodial or noncustodial parent, your case should be handled by a divorce lawyer or Arizona child support specialist.

What Variables Determine the Amount Paid or Received for Child Support?

There will be factors that determine how much a custodial parent will receive from the non-custodial parent.

 

  • Non-custodial and custodial income

 

One or both incomes will be the major factor in your child support case. The judge will make sure that a child’s or children’s needs are fully met, based on one or both incomes.

The types of child custody vary, and factor into the amount paid. This alone is an important reason why a divorce lawyer or family law attorney should be consulted before filing.

 

  • Cost of childcare

 

Here, basic needs are analyzed. What is the overall cost for your child or children’s food, shelter, education, clothing, medical needs, recreation, and more. This does impact the overall amount that will be created, so it is crucial to go over even the smallest details with your attorney.

 

  • Age of the child

 

Children under the age of 18 are included in the amount that a parent will pay in child support. The age of your child or children is taken into account and, again, factored into your income and cost of childcare.

Can Child Support Be Modified?

Yes, your Arizona child support can be modified throughout your child or children’s lives. Section 25-203 of Arizona Revised Statutes allows for modification when and if a change in parental circumstance has happened. This minor but very important aspect will be a point of inspection your lawyer will look into as changes arise.
