Arizona Child Support FAQ

How is child support calculated in Arizona?

Arizona uses the Income Shares model to calculate child support. The combined incomes of both parents are considered, along with the number of children needing support. Factors like parenting time and health insurance costs are also included. Child support calculators can estimate amounts.

Can child support be modified in Arizona?

Yes, if there are substantial changes, such as a parent losing a job or a child’s needs increasing. A parent must file a petition to request a modification. The court will evaluate if the change merits adjusting support.

Can custody arrangements affect child support?

Yes. Sole custody with one parent may lead to higher payments by the non-custodial parents. Joint custody can result in offsetting payments by each parent depending on income.

When does child support end in Arizona?

At age 18 or when the child graduates high school, whichever one is later. Support may be extended if a child has special needs. Educational expenses may continue through college.
