Child Support in Arizona is determined by the specific guidelines. The court considers both parent's income, the cost for insurance and child care, and who pays for these costs. Even a non-working parent may be ordered to pay child support based on their ability to work. This is done by imputing their income as minimum wage for a full-time job. It is possible for parties to deviate from the child support determination either by agreement or be a showing to the court that a deviation is just and in the best interest of the child.
