There is a saying that applies to calculating child support: If you put deceptive or incomplete numbers into one end of the process, that is what will come out the other end.
The state of Arizona uses a set formula to determine child support levels. The courts seek to know, among other things, the monthly income of both parents. If one parent owns a business, works for tips or on a cash basis, or has complex financial holdings, this number may be very malleable.
Our firm, Horne Slaton, PLLC, is skilled at ferreting out the real numbers and arriving at child support levels that reflect the true financial conditions.
Setting child support levels calls on our ability to analyze available data and arrive at numbers that are more credible than the numbers supplied. It is another example of the way in which our commercial litigation practice, with its emphasis on financial analysis, strengthens our hand as family law attorneys.
Our numbers-based approach benefits you in another way. Many parents write down their gross annual income but fail to enter the deductible expenses that lower total income. We have walked countless clients through this process, and the resulting numbers are always accurate, persuasive and advantageous.
We help you set up child support payments. Later on, we assist again in child support modifications and in enforcement of existing court orders. We also assist with establishing paternity in order to obtain child support.
Determining child support levels requires thorough analysis and persuasion, not just a formula. For compelling legal assistance in the area of child support calculations, call the lawyers at Horne Slaton at online form.. Or write to our Scottsdale child support attorneys about your needs using this
