Some General Guidelines for Determining Child Support

Arizona courts follow the Arizona Child Support Guidelines (the “Guidelines”). The information below, from the Guidelines, only addresses a few of the issues that can arise when determining a parent’s child support obligation.

The Guidelines estimate the total amount of child support that a child’s parents would have spent if they were living together, with each parent contributing his or her proportionate share of the total amount of support. Child support obligations take priority over all other financial obligations. In certain circumstances (such as the parties’ agreement), courts can deviate from the Guidelines when ordering a parent to pay child support.

Texting While Driving in Arizona

Though the dangers of texting and driving are now well known and firmly established, and despite the introduction of several bills geared towards formally banning texting while behind the wheel, Arizona remains one of nine states that has yet to adopt a formal texting while driving ban. While the issue of whether or not such a ban is appropriate continues to be debated, the lack of a formal ban on texting and driving does not necessarily absolve a driver of any liability should texting lead to an accident, thanks to Arizona’s statutes regarding reckless driving.

Current Arizona reckless driving statutes state that an individual is guilty of reckless driving if they operate a vehicle “in reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property.” Those convicted of reckless driving are guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor, and, if certain aggravating factors apply, a conviction could result in a jail sentence.

Time to Review Your Estate Plan

An estate plan represents a snapshot of someone’s current life. Though we draft our estate documents to be amenable to life changes, one should still review his estate plan every year or so to see if the documents reflect his or her wishes.

At our firm, the wills we draft are general, and more often than not cover one’s entire estate in lieu of referencing specific assets. Although the estate plan may be generalized, many life events warrant changes to one’s documents. Moving between states, marriage, divorce, estrangement, and death of loved ones all represent appropriate reasons to update an estate plan.
