Child support disputes are a major focus of our law practice

In both divorce and paternity cases, the basic child support obligation is determined under the state child support guidelines. You can get a good idea of your own child support payment by using the Arizona Child Support Calculator. There are many situations, however, when the result produced by the calculator will understate or overstate the amount that should actually be paid. Here are some frequent complications that could be taken into consideration:

  • Child has special medical, educational or behavioral needs
  • One of the parents needs to support children from a prior marriage or relationship
  • A parent has extraordinary expenses related to health care, business travel or other circumstances
  • One of the parents is self-employed or has an income that is irregular or difficult to ascertain

If you are an Arizona parent on either side of a child support controversy both in divorce and in paternity cases, the Belt Law Firm will offer the legal guidance you need. Call 480-837-3600 to speak directly with Scottsdale child support lawyer, John C. Belt.
