DURATION OF CHILD SUPPORT
Duration of child support is governed by Arizona Revised Statutes, Sections 25-320 and
25-501, except as provided in Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 25-1304.
Upon entry of an initial or modified child support order, the court shall, or in any
subsequent action relating to the child support order, the court may, establish a
presumptive date for the termination of the current child support obligation. The
presumptive termination date shall be the last day of the month of the 18th birthday of the
youngest child included in the order unless the court finds that it is projected that the
youngest child will not complete high school by age 18. In that event, the presumptive
termination date shall be the last day of the month of the anticipated graduation date or
age 19, whichever occurs first. The administrative income withholding order issued by
the department or its agent in Title IV-D cases and an Order of Assignment issued by the
court shall include the presumptive termination date. The presumptive date may be
modified upon changed circumstances.
