Answer: There are several great resources available to you which can help you determine the amount of child support you will pay. The following are some of the factors the courts look at when determining child support... These can be found in Arizona Revised Statute 25-320, under section D. 1. The financial resources and needs of the child. 2. The financial resources and needs of the custodial parent. 3. The standard of living the child would have enjoyed if the child lived in an intact home with both parents to the extent it is economically feasible considering the resources of each parent and each parent's need to maintain a home and to provide support for the child when the child is with that parent. 4. The physical and emotional condition of the child, and the child's educational needs. 5. The financial resources and needs of the noncustodial parent. 6. The medical support plan for the child. The plan should include the child's medical support needs, the availability of medical insurance or services provided by the Arizona health care cost containment system and whether a cash medical support order is necessary. 7. Excessive or abnormal expenditures, destruction, concealment or fraudulent disposition of community, joint tenancy and other property held in common. 8.
