Question: My ex husband has not been paying childsupport since march 2009 due to losing his job. How can I get him to pay back childsupport-or file for it. and if i dont know my Atlas number who can I call to get it

Answer:

A.R.S. § 25-403.09 states: A. For any custody order entered under this article, the court shall determine an amount of child support in accordance with section 25-320 and guidelines established pursuant to that section. B. An award of joint custody does not diminish the responsibility of either parent to provide for the support of the child. A.R.S. § 25-508 discusses the enforcement of support orders.

You may be able to find the forms to enforce child support through your local family court or law library. Some counties have information online; such as Maricopa County, Pima County and Coconino County. Other resources that might be helpful can be found on the Arizona Department of Economic Security website that can help you with child support enforcement, and could also help you in finding out your atlas number.
