To calculate child support, EZSupport-AZ requires you to enter a parenting time total into the program, along with other information about each parent's income.
Because the state of Arizona uses parenting time in its child support formula, EZSupport-AZ software also needs users to input parenting time when calculating child support amounts. Parenting time is the total time each parent spends with their children outside of school or day care.
Arizona state law determines that parenting time is totaled by adding up each full day, half day and quarter day segments that the non-residential parent hosts the children. The higher the parenting time total, the lower the child support amount.
The parenting time credit only applies to sole physical custody cases. In Arizona, a joint physical custody case is figured using a different formula, without offering any parenting time credit.
The sole custody formula multiplies the non-custodial parent's adjusted income by a percentage created from the total number of days the parent hosts the children.
In Arizona, parenting time calculations cannot include time when the children are with a third party, such as school or day care. Adjustments to child support amounts are also made when each child turns 12 years old.
Custody X Change software includes a parenting time calculator that shows exactly how much time each parent has with the children. It can provide this data as total number of hours, days or as a percentage of time annually.
When users set up a parenting time schedule, the software automatically counts up all the full, half and quarter days for the non-residential parent. This accurate parenting time total really helps attorneys who use EZSupport-AZ.
Use Custody X Change to get accurate parenting time totals, because:
- Parenting time totals are difficult to figure out by hand, because attorneys must add all the quarter, half and full days within a year for the non-residential parent.
- Figuring parenting time totals adjust every time an attorney changes the schedule.
- Calculating and re-calculating any change to the schedule is so complex, some attorneys are forced to estimate or guess.
- Entering parenting time totals calculated from a guess or estimate into the Arizona child support formula means that child support amounts will likely be wrong.
Figuring out child support amounts requires exact numbers, from each parent's income to the amount of credits allowed. Another important number is the parenting time total, or how long each parent is scheduled to be with the children. Correct numbers mean the child support amount is fair and accurate, and Custody X Change delivers accurate totals every time.
