Regarding payment, it can be done as a onetime lump sum, monthly installments, or as a division of assets.

Either way, there are several ways to diminish your Arizona support responsibility.

To take advantage of the system, you need to understand how the system really works in Florida.

Arizona Child Support is an unusual issue because unlike alimony, itís not left to the discretion of a judge, but calculated using Arizona guideline formulas.

Little is subject to investigation, and that means your disposable income is not a factor in the ultimate decision.

Forida child support is determined through Arizona guideline formulas that take into consideration your income, you ex-wifeís income, how many children you have, and the amount of time you spend each month with your kids.

Your expenses, her expenses, and the children's primary expenses are not factors when calculating Child Support in Florida.
