Updates to Arizona’s Child Support Guidelines – Why you can Rely on M. Paul Fischer and Over 50 Years of Experience
Posted On December 20, 2022
The Arizona Child Support Guidelines underwent an update at the beginning of the year 2022. These updates are made every four years and are intended to reflect the changing needs of families in the state. The updated Guidelines provide greater clarity and consistency when calculating child support payments and have some important changes that may affect your clients. Let’s take a closer look at what Attorney Paul Fischer knows about these updates.
The most significant change is that the updated Guidelines expressly exclude from Child Support Income any assistance received for a child from the government or public assistance programs such as adoption subsidies or disability assistance payments for a child. Attorney Fischer states that this exclusion is important because it ensures that these vital resources will not be used to pay for child support obligations.
In addition, any income earned from working overtime while the family was intact has been excluded from Child Support Income calculations under the updated Guidelines. This provides parents with more flexibility in their earning potential by allowing them to choose a reduced income if they want more time to meaningfully interact with their children without sacrificing their ability to work overtime in order to make ends meet.
