Helping Parents Resolve Child Support Concerns in Arizona
Children are legally entitled to financial support from both of their parents. Whether you are going through a divorce or involved in a child support dispute for any other reason, a fair outcome for your child depends on getting accurate information.

Contact my office to discuss what my staff and I can do to address your concerns and meet your child's needs.
Focused on Accurately Calculating Fair Support Obligations
In Arizona, child support is calculated based on a set of guidelines that take into account several variables, including the income or earning ability of each parent, the child custody (legal decision making) schedule and the number of children supported by each party.
While the guidelines are designed to create a fairly straightforward formula, there are many situations where child support determinations are more involved. Depending on your specific circumstances, some steps that may be necessary include:
- Investigating whether one party is earning money under the table
- Calculating the earning power of a party who is underemployed
- Resolving how parenting time days are calculated for purposes of the formula
- Addressing who will be responsible for health insurance and child care expenses
Modifying or Enforcing Child Support Orders
Child support often needs to be revisited after the final decree is issued. I am experienced at assisting clients in child support modification cases and enforcement of court orders when necessary, to make sure your child is supported on an ongoing basis.
