Child Support & Family Law Information


The Arizona Child Support Guidelines are used to calculate the support amount and follow the Income Shares Model. The model was developed by the Child Support Guidelines Project of the National Center for State Courts. Both parents' incomes are used to calculate the amount of child support that one parent will pay to the other household to financially support the children.
 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR PARENTS RECEIVING CHILD SUPPORT:
