Arizona Child Support Question:

Arizona Child Support Informational Answer:
Child support in Arizona, as in most states, is governed by child support guidelines. The guidelines take into account various factors calculating the actual monthly child support obligation. The court does have the authority to deviate from the guidelines under certain circumstances but a deviation is rare. The monthly child support for two children will always vary based on the other factors. Some of the more important factors entered into the child support calculation are: (1) the gross income of the parties; (2) the cost of health insurance to insure only the children which is actually being paid; (3) the number of days of parenting time for the non-custodial parent; (4) The cost for necessary child care each month for the children which is actually being paid. There are a few other minor factors that can also change the child support calculation as well.
Once all of the information is entered into the calculator it will provide you with an amount that should be paid for child support under Arizona Child Support Guidelines. Therefore, there is no standard answer as to what child support would be each month with two children just based on their age. The best course of action would be to consult an attorney so that an accurate child support calculation could be prepared based on all of the necessary factors.
