Child support represents a parent’s obligation to financially support his or her children. Commonly misunderstood, child support is intended to ensure that the children are adequately provided for without need for government assistance. In certain cases, it may also be intended to ensure that children enjoy a consistent standard of living at both parents’ homes.

Child Support in Arizona
Common examples of material changes include:
- Involuntary termination of employment;
- changes to parents’ incomes;
- increased cost for child health insurance;
- changes to parenting time
It is important to understand that self-represented litigants are held to the same standard as lawyers in family court. This means that if you do not know the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure or the applicable rules of evidence, it could irreparably compromise your case. At the very least, even if you plan to proceed without a lawyer, contact us for a free consultation.
Similarly, even severance or voluntary termination of parental rights does not end a child support obligation. These actions only guarantee that the parent will be credited with no parenting time on the child support calculator. The parent’s obligation to provide child support continues until the child is legally adopted.
