Application of Payments on Child Support Arrearages

When an obligor parent (the parent paying child support) makes payments toward a child support arrearage in Arizona, the court should first apply the payment to interest. This means that the child support arrearage itself will be paid only after the accrued interest is paid. So the Arizona Court of Appeals held on January 11, 2005 in Alley v. Stevens , 1 CA-CV 04-0097.
