Arizona Divorce: Modifying Your Child Support Payment
Since the entry of a child support order, have you changed jobs and reduced income? Lost your job? Added private medical insurance for your child(ren)? or added a new child(ren) to the family? or has a child emancipated?
If so, you may be able to modify your child support payment either through the Standard Modification process or the Simplified Modification process. In the former, you have to show a substantial and continuing change in circumstances and, in the latter you have to show the new support amount is at least 15 percent high or lower than the existing order.
The first step to beginning the modification is:
• Speaking with an experienced Arizona family law attorney;
• Speaking to the court yourself; or
• Speaking with the Division of Child Support Enforcement
