To use the child support calculator, select or enter the appropriate information next to each statement.
When you have completed the form, click on the calculate button to get an estimate of the amount of child support that the non-custodial parent will have to pay to the custodial parent in Arizona.
To determine the amount of child support owed to a custodial parent, Arizona law considers the amount of money that would have been used to support the children if the parents continued to live together. Based on this projected amount of money, the gross income of each parent, the amount of time each parent provides care for their child in a given year, and other factors (such as cost of childcare, extra educational expenses, medical insurance and additional costs of caring for a special needs child), child support orders are set in place.
