As a general rule no, past due support cannot be modified in Arizona. Any amount that may have accrued as past due support (child support arrearages) before the date of filing the motion to modify child support, cannot be modified. Child support amounts ordered by the court are due on the date ordered, and if unpaid, are considered arrearages, which accrue interest at the current statutory rate. Any currently existing unpaid balance due plus interest cannot be modified. If you have further questions about past due child support in mesa az, AZ family law attorney Tim Durkin can assist you during a confidential consultation. Call 480.779.7972.
