Arizona Child Support Guidelines
In a divorce situation, child custody and child support issues have to be handled before the divorce can be finalized. The court will put the needs of the children before the needs of the parents based on the State of Arizona child support guidelines. In a contested divorce situation, child support is often one of the sticking points and even though there are state guidelines, there is plenty of room for negotiation. Understanding your rights is of the utmost importance to get the most leverage during negotiation. Our law firm has over 70 years of experience with the Arizona child support guidelines and thoroughly understands all of the nuances of the law.
Income is not the only factor that the court takes into consideration when determining child support payments. Here are some, but by no means all, of the factors that can be introduced when mitigating your child support payments:
- Income and debts
- Health insurance
- Custody time
- Education, medical and health needs
- The children’s prior standard of living
- Children’s trusts
