Phoenix Child Support
The law secures the protection, happiness, and welfare of children so they can grow up into holistically healthy citizens of the country. Receiving their basic needs, such as food, shelter, education, and clothing, is a right that parents must adequately provide.
Arizona state laws provide that both parents must contribute to the needs of their children. While this can be mistaken as both parents having to contribute the same amount of financial resources, the most common arrangement, in fact, is that one parent provides money while the other takes care of the daily needs of the children involved.
In cases of divorced couples, it is the court that has the power to decide on who is most fit to handle the daily upbringing of the child and who will be in charge of the majority of financial resources. They will, of course, consider important factors like the income of the parents, the current arrangement of custody, the gravity of the situation, and the needs of the children.

Child Support Calculation
The major idea of child support cases is making the right arrangements in financial provisions between a divorced couple. Although money is a major factor, the parental responsibilities of the one who will receive the money are also heavily considered.
In the context of a child custody arrangement, the parent who has the most rights and responsibilities over the child is often the one who receives financial support from the other. It is already understood that the parent who is involved in the daily upbringing of the child is already contributing equally to the situation. But certain situations, such as when the custodial parent earns much more than the other one, definitely demand special court actions.
Whatever complications your situation has, Dodge & Vega PLC is here to figure out the best way to achieve the most favorable child support arrangement for you and your kids.
Here are certain factors that the court considers when it comes to deciding on child support matters:
1. The number of children eligible to receive child support
2. Educational expenses, medical sickness coverage, and other important financial considerations
3. Physical time spent by each parent with the child
4. The financial capacity of each parent
5. Other financial resources such as investments, businesses, social security, etc.
6. Amount of spousal support received if there is any.
To maintain the kids’ relationship with their parents, the court considers carefully the time spent by each parent with them. Coupled with the financial resources that the children need to live a good life, the court will judge the situation with the kids’ welfare in mind as the top priority. This is also what we want for you. The court does not immediately know all the information about your case. So we will make sure that we argue effectively so they can see how to best take care of your children by making the best possible child support arrangements.
Whether you’re the one who needs to receive child support from the other parent or you’re the one who needs to settle your obligations as a child support provider, Dodge & Vega PLC can provide you with a skilled and understanding Phoenix child support attorney.
Child Support Enforcement
It is a well-known problem in child custody and support cases that some parents are totally or partially uncooperative, refusing to properly carry out the initial arrangements.
In such situations, it is best to get a Phoenix child support attorney to file and process child support enforcement.
Another situation wherein child enforcement must be filed when the child involved becomes 18 years old, which makes them ineligible for child support.
The exception is when they are under special circumstances, especially medical conditions. The parent would need to tell the court that even if the kid is now aged 18, child support is needed.
Whatever situation compels you to ask for child support enforcement, Dodge & Vega PLC is here to help out. We will analyze the details of the terms. We will help you find out the reasons why the other party is refusing to cooperate and make the right arguments to the court to convince them that legal action is necessary for the sake of the children involved.
Child Support Modification
Child support modification is another legal action that a parent can file if certain changes to the initial arrangement must be made for the welfare of the kids. We can help you present your case well to the court, especially if there is a great need for a child support modification.
Examples of circumstances that demand modification include changes in income (whether it’s a raise or a job loss), address relocation, detection of a serious illness, and other major changes to the lifestyle of the children or parents.
