Child Support Calculator Information
The purpose of this calculator is informational and educational only and does not constitute legal advice. The amount of child support a court will order for any particular case may be different from the amount estimated by the calculator. The court has the final authority to determine the amount of child support awarded. The amount yielded by this calculator is only an estimate and is not a guarantee of the amount of child support that will be awarded.
In cases of default, the guidelines in effect at the time of filing the action will be used. The parties may agree to use either the guidelines in effect at the time of filing the action or those in effect at the time the order is entered.
2015 Child Support Calculator: On January 14, 2015, the Supreme Court adopted technical revisions to the Arizona Child Support Guidelines. The newly adopted statewide child support guidelines will be effective July 1, 2015, for all child support orders, whether original orders or modifications of pre-existing orders, entered after June 30, 2015. (Arizona Child Support Guidelines and Administrative Order 2015-6).
2011 Child Support Calculator: The 2011 child support calculator is still available for calculating all child support orders entered after May 31, 2011, and before July 1, 2015, whether they are original orders or modifications of pre-existing orders, unless the court determines otherwise based on good cause shown.
