Arizona uses a specific set of guidelines to determine how much child support should be paid by the non-custodial parent. The state uses a complex formula that takes all of the guidelines into consideration in order to arrive at an appropriate child support payment amount. One of the primary goals of these guidelines is to ensure that neither parent is carrying an unfair share of the financial responsibility for the child’s care and to ensure that the child enjoys a substantially similar lifestyle in both parents’ homes.
Among the provisions included in the guidelines is which parent is paying for day care. Under Arizona law, if the non-custodial parent is paying for the child’s day care expenses, he or she is entitled to an adjustment to the child support payment. These guidelines can be very confusing, and the assistance of an Arizona child support lawyer can be extremely beneficial.
