Couples in Arizona may choose to part ways by way of an uncontested divorce. For a couple, divorcing in that manner may save a lot of time and money. However, there may be a catch. The couple must agree on all matters that would otherwise require a court resolution.
Child support is one such issue in which a couple may need to agree. In Arizona, unlike issues pertaining to visitation and child custody, child support is a mandatory obligation of the non-custodial parent. The non-custodial parent is expected to pay child support until the child reaches 18-years-old. Nonetheless, it might be helpful to consult an experienced attorney in all matters related to child support, instead of attempting to handle it independently.
The attorneys of John Bednarz, P.C., have decades of experience in handling child support cases. They can help with child support calculations, and the factors that are taken into account in child support calculation. Will the income of both parents be factored into child support calculations? There may be arguments about how much each parent earns. It is then that an experienced attorney can help. There may be times when a parent defaults on child support payments. In that case, the custodial parent may need the support of an experienced attorney.
A parent can find an answer to all possible questions regarding child support payments in the Arizona child support guidelines. The basic child support order, as most Arizona parents understand, is based on the income of the parents, the number of children in the family and the expenses, such as health insurance and day care. Unlike spousal support, parents cannot suddenly stop paying child support payments. Our experienced Arizona attorneys will ensure that the child support that the supporting parent owes must be paid in full each time.
