When Arizona Divorce Leads to Unpaid Child Support Payments

An Arizona divorce can cause much uncertainty. When children are involved, it will undoubtedly raise questions about child support and child support payments.

Understanding child support payments
The court will establish a child support amount. A judicial officer will sign the order, and the order will be issued by the court specifying:

  • The amount of child support to be paid
  • Which parent will be responsible for paying the child support
  • When the parent is to begin making support payments


The enforcement of child support payments
Unfortunately, and for a variety of reasons, not all child support payments are made. There are a number of actions that can be taken against a parent who is not making the payments including, but not limited to:

  • Potential jail time
  • Liens on personal and real property
  • Liens on motor vehicles
  • The suspension of licenses including drivers, professional and recreational licenses
  • The interception of both state and federal tax refunds
  • Passport denial
  • Credit bureau reporting
