What Is The Standard Procedure to Modify Child Support in Arizona?

You may use the standard procedure to modify child support by filing a written petition with the court requesting a modification of child support if you are able to allege that a substantial and continuing change in circumstances has occurred since the date the prior child support order was entered by the court.

A substantial and continuing change in circumstances is presumed to exist when the proposed change results in a modification of the child support of at least 15% from the existing child support order. Most child support modifications result from changes to the following factors:

  • A raise or cut in the salary or other regular income of either parent;
  • A change in custody of a child;
  • Addition of health insurance or a change in the availability of health insurance coverage;
