In Arizona, either party may ask the Court to change child support when there has been a significant and continuing change in the factors for calculating child support. This can be the increase or reduction of the income of either party, a change in medical insurance costs or availability, an increase or decrease in day care or child care costs, or the emancipation of one or more children.
Child support does not automatically change, and must be changed through the court process. A change can only become effective on the first day of the month following the commencement of a case to modify child support and service upon the other party.
If you need assistance modifying child support in your case, or if the other party has asked the Court to modify child support and you do not agree with the requested change, please feel free to contact the attorneys as McGuire Gardner for a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your case, by calling 800 899-2730.
