Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you this evening. Possibly, yes. In Arizona, remarriage
by itself isn’t grounds for modifying a child support order. But, if the remarriage of either parent causes a substantial change in his or her financial circumstances, the court will consider that when deciding whether to modify child support. For example, if a mother
pays child support to a father, and the father gets married to a woman who earns significant income and pays most of the household bills, a judge may decide to lower the child support payment. Since the new wife contributes to the household expenses, the father can shoulder more of the financial burden for his child. On the other hand, if a non-custodial parent
remarries and takes on additional expenses or children, the court is less likely to reduce child support.Either parent may ask the court for a reduction or increase in child support. If you can show that circumstances have changed such that a new child support calculation would differ from the current payment by at least 15%, you may have a better chance for modifying child support. After filing a motion for modification, there will need to be a hearing on the matter, and the parties will be expected to turn over proof of income to assist the court in making its decision. If the court finds in favor of modification, they can enter an order changing the existing support amount. If you need clarification or additional information, please reply, and I'll be happy to assist further. Thank you.
