Arizona Child Custody Paralegals in Phoenix and Tucson

Can an Arizona paralegal prepare child custody documents?

phoenix custody paralegal

If you have a current child custody order filed in any county in Arizona, and you are a parent that believes that it would be in the child’s best interest to modify the child custody order, a paralegal can prepare the legal documents for you so long as they have been certified by the Arizona Supreme Court and board of legal document preparers.

What information must be included in the paperwork for an Arizona Child Custody modification?

According to the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure, the court considers several factors when determining whether to even grant a hearing to modify child custody including but not limited to:

1) The wishes of the parents

2) The wishes of the child

3) The relationships between the child and family members

4) Which parent is more willing to encourage frequent and meaningful contact with the other parent

5) Whether a parent has used coercion or duress to obtain a custody agreement

6) The health and well being of all parties involved

7) Which parent has completed the required parenting class

8 ) If a parent has been convicted of false reporting of abuse or neglect

Can I modify Child Support at the same time that I modify Child Custody?

Yes, custody, parenting time and child support can all be addressed in one document and if a custody hearing is granted then all issues may be addressed at the same time in the same hearing.

Arizona Paralegal for Child Support Calculations

CHILD SUPPORT PARALEGALS IN ARIZONA

When looking for an Arizona Paralegal to assist you with child support calculation, modifications or terminations be sure that the paralegal is familiar with the issues that are taken into consideration when determining child support.

Factors for determination of Child Support

The issues of importance when determining child support include the gross incomes of each parent, whether a parent is paying spousal maintenance or receiving spousal maintenance, whether either parent is supporting another child not common to the parties, insurance premiums that are paid for the child, parenting days exercised by the non-custodial parent, day care expenses paid by a parent on behalf of the child in common to the parties, expenses paid by a parent of an extraordinary child, and educational expenses paid on behalf of an extraordinary child.

ARIZONA CHILD SUPPORT CALCULATOR

A free Arizona Child Support Calculator is available online and even creates the Parent’s Worksheet for you.  The information entered in the child support calculator is pooled together and listed on a Parent’s Worksheet.  The Parent’s Worksheet combines the two parents’ incomes together to get a total income and then cross referenced with a pre-determined chart of child support amounts.  A total child support amount is determined to be the amount required to care for the child in question given all of the above factors.  This total child support amount is divided between the two parents based upon their percentage of incomes.  This percentage is not necessarily equal because the parents may have unequal incomes. The non-custodial parent pays the child support amount calculated to the custodial parent per month broken down by pay periods.  In other words, a parent who pays $400 per month in child support and is paid bi-monthly would pay $200 per paycheck.

How do I modify my Arizona child support order?

If you already have an Arizona child support order and believe that there has been a substantial and continuing change in either parties’ circumstances then we can prepare and file your Petition to modify child support. A change in circumstances could be that 1 of your children has turned 18 and graduated from high school or one parent’s income has substantially increased. So long as the new child support amount is 15% or more or 15% less than the current amount ordered, the court may consider modifying the child support amount.
