Supplying basic the needs of children such as food and housing can get quite expensive in this day and age, especially for single parents. In order to see that the needs of the children are being met, noncustodial parents are often required by law in Arizona to pay child support to custodial parents. However, it is not uncommon for discrepancies to arise regarding the details and amounts of these payments.

Parents have a duty and obligation to support their children. When parents separate, child support laws ensure that the financial needs of the children are met.
