Child Support – Phoenix Divorce Attorneys
Reppucci & Roeder, PLLC – Child Support – Phoenix Divorce Attorneys
When parents split up, divorce or legally separate, it is often very difficult on any children involved. The overarching goal with child support is to ensure that children involved will be able to live substantially the same life in terms of what is available to them. As is the case with custody matters, any decision regarding child support will be in the best interest of the children.
The Phoenix Divorce Attorneys of Reppucci & Roeder, PLLC help families resolve child support matters both outside and inside the courtroom. If parents can agree upon child support terms outside of the court room that comply with Arizona’s child support guidelines, this is the most feasible way to ensure a child’s needs are being met. However, child support matters are often resolved in the courtroom and it is essential to have the best legal representation possible when fighting for what you believe is the appropriate child support arrangement under Arizona law.
What Does the Court Consider When Ordering a Parent to Make Child Support Payments?
Similar to custody matters, Arizona courts will consider a variety of factors to determine which parent will have the obligation of making child support payments to the other parent to ensure the child’s financial needs are being met. Such factors include, but may not be limited to, the following:
- Each parent’s income;
- How close the child’s relationship is with each parent;
- Where the child lives;
- The cost of medical care the child requires; and
- Whether or not the child has special needs that may require payment of treatment and/or classes.
The amount of child support one parent may be obligated to pay will depend upon whether or not both parents’ income is likely to change in the future. For example, if the parent receiving child support payments is anticipated to obtain employment in the near future, a court may take that into consideration when ordering one parent to make child support payments to the other parent.
How an Arizona Child Support Attorney Can Help You
Families go through the family court process without the assistance of an attorney all the time. While this is an option for you, having an attorney will provide you with the resources you need to ensure you are able to reach a fair result in terms of a child support order. An attorney can voice your interests to the court and the reasons why you believe child support payments should or should not be ordered. Having a legal professional available to advocate on your behalf is essential for your children to receive the financial assistance they need and deserve.
