The Arizona Child Support Guidelines w.e.f. January 1st 2005, prescribes the income shares model.
The total earnings of both the parents are computed as if they are living together.
The amount spent by each spouse for the child in the household will be taken as the base for determining the child support award.
- The child support award is based on the gross income of the parents.
- The child support will terminate when the child or children attain the age of 18 or graduates, whoever is earlier.
- The court may exempt either of the parents from bearing the child’s college expenses.
