Every state in the U.S. has guidelines for use in determining the amount of child support paid by parents to aid in the upbringing of their children, and Arizona is no exception.
Although parentage is generally addressed for the purposes of providing financial support for a child, it is so much more in the life of a child. Parentage is the establishment of a legal relationship between a father and child to provide basic emotional, social, and economic ties.
Child support can continue upon the death of the custodial or non-custodial parent. It is prudent to take steps ahead of time to ensure this is the case for both your peace of mind and the financial well-being of your child.
With life resuming a somewhat more normal course in Arizona, many separated and divorced parents have questions regarding how to co-parent at this stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without stay-at-home orders in place, children are back at school and seeing their friends.
