FAQ - Child Support

How is child support determined in Arizona?

The current Arizona Child Support Guidelines follow the Income Shares Model. An income shares model is a model that takes into consideration the income of both parents. The guidelines allow for the children to be supported at the same level as when the parents and child were living together. Each parent contributes his or her proportionate share of the total child support amount. The Arizona Supreme Court and the self-service center also offer a free online child support calculator that may help you determine if a change in the child support amount is appropriate
