Arizona Child Support Enforcement

U.S. News and World Report Best Divorce and Family Law Firms in ArizonaThere are too many Arizona divorce orders that include child support orders that are violated by the individual ordered to make the child support payments.

The parent who is providing the majority of the care for the children will often feel overwhelmed and disappointed, frequently leaving them stuck in a bad situation.

But under the Child Support Enforcement (CSE) Program, Arizona parents have assistance in collecting child support.

Arizona Child Support Enforcement

The CSE Arizona child support enforcement program was established in Arizona as part of the Social Security Act in 1975.

The goal of the program is to promote parental responsibility and decrease costs associated with welfare.

Child support provisions can reduce the ever-increasing burden on the taxpayer for welfare costs, and studies have indicated that parents who are financially vested in their children tend to be more active in other areas of their lives as well.

Arizona Revised Statute Section 46-401 specifically provides that parents have a legal responsibility to financially support their children before public assistance is relied upon to help to support a child.

If you are in need of a means of enforcing a child support order, there are options for you to utilize. In an ideal world, child support payments would always be made promptly, but in reality that just is not always the case. Sometimes a parent simply will not receive payments on time, they will only receive partial payments, or they will not receive payments at all.

In these situations, aggressive Arizona child support enforcement may be necessary.
