Your children deserve to enjoy the same standard of living if you and your spouse had stayed together. For this reason, child support is not viewed as a luxury for children, but as a fundamental right. Arizona’s child support guidelines govern the decisions regarding a fair child support award. An experienced attorney can help to ensure a fair child support calculation.


At The Law Office of Ronald Kossack, we have helped to guide many parents in Tempe, AZ, and surrounding areas through the child support and child support modification process. Since 1993, we have been working to obtain the right amount of money to provide for children after a divorce or a paternity matter.

Several factors will be considered when determining child support, including:

  • The income of both parents
  • The amount of parenting time awarded to each parent
  • Any special needs of the children
  • Childcare costs and health insurance costs


Determining the income of the parents is not always a straightforward process. Tax returns, the parents’ incomes, expenses of the child, extracurricular costs and extra educational expenses all need to be analyzed. This can be even more difficult if one or both parents are self-employed or if a parent tries to shield income. At The Law Office of Ronald Kossack, we will conduct a reverse audit to calculate the lifestyle and the living expenses of both parties. We can also employ the help of accountants, vocational experts and other professionals to help calculate the income of the underemployed and to attribute income to non-wage earners.
