Under Arizona law, each parent has a responsibility for providing the financial support necessary to accommodate his or her child’s needs.
That responsibility does not end with a divorce. Arizona has established guidelines that use an income-sharing model that requires each parent to commit a proportionate share of his or her income to the overall cost of the child’s care.
There are a number of factors that are considered when determining the required level of support and how much will be paid by each parent. How much time each parent cares for the child, which parent is paying for medical insurance, who is paying for day care and other factors can all come into play.
The calculations can become quite complex, and having an experienced Peoria child support attorney who understands the guidelines can help to ensure that your share of the obligation is accurate.
