If you have minor children, you will have to calculate child support, and most of the time there will be an order for one parent to pay a monthly child support to the other.
Arizona child support laws can be very simple at times but can become extremely complicated under certain circumstances. Most people are aware of the monthly payment, but many people do not realize that other issues are also considered part of child support. Who is going to provide health insurance for the children? Who is going to pay for medical expenses that are not covered by insurance? Who is going to claim the children on their tax returns? Who is going to pay for travel costs or extracurricular activities? All of these issues fall within the laws regarding child support and must be dealt with properly in every paternity case or divorce with children.
