Arizona man arrested for failing to pay child support

For many people in Arizona, establishing a child support order is relatively easy. Either at the time of divorce or, in the case of unwed parents, at a hearing to establish paternity, child support is ordered at an amount either agreed to by the parties or determined by a judge in accordance with state child support guidelines. The hard part for many parents, however, is child support enforcement. Simply being ordered to pay a certain amount does not mean that the person will actually pay it. Some individuals are very good at evading child support collection efforts and end up owing large amounts of child support.
