Child Support

questions & answers

Question: Husband is retiring from working. What happens to my son's child support?

Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. Both Custodial and Non-Custodial Parents can request a modification of their existing child support order when there has been a significant and continuing change within the household, such as adding or changing health insurance, a loss of a job, disability, or an increase or decrease in income for either parent. If the payer (obligor) was paying support through the wage assignment program it may become the responsibility of the payer to send the funds to the Support Payment Clearing House.  The AZ Department of Economic Security website contains the forms and instructions to modify a child support order, as well as more information specific to these and other situations.
