Child support is usually determined by way of a formula that takes into account each parent’s income and assets, and the amount of time that a child spends with each parent. The parent who receives the child support often accuses the other parent of not complying with a child support order. Lasiter & Jackson is a full-service family law firm in Phoenix, Arizona, that helps parents with child support enforcement matters.
