Question: Can inheritance be considered for child support when a parent is filing to reduce their child support payment because they claim a deduction in monthly income? Also, if the money is being hidden offshore, how can it be found?
Answer: Under Arizona law, both a custodial and non-custodial parent may request a modification of their existing child support order when there has been a significant change within the household; this can include changing health insurance, a loss of a job, disability or an increase or decrease in income for either parent. According to Arizona Law, A.R.S. § 25-500(6), "Income" includes "any form of payment owed to an individual, regardless of source, including wages, salaries, commissions, bonuses, workers' compensation, disability payments, payments pursuant to a pension or retirement program and interest."
