Question: 1.Can child support arrears be not garnished every week? In other words, can child support arrears be distributed once a month? 2. Can child support arrears be garnished less than the court ordered amount?
It is best to contact the Department of Economic Security for information on the frequency and methods of making court-ordered child support payments. Per the Payments FAQ’s Page (https://www.azdes.gov/az_child_support/paying_modifying.aspx), you may request your existing payment plan be altered: “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.” This page includes a link to the form to request this modification.
If you have questions, or need assistance, you may contact DCSE Customer Service at (800) 882-4151, (602) 252-4045, or you can visit your local office.
