Arizona Family Law Attorneys Corso & Rhude Help Clients Fight Child Support Overpayment in Arizona The Arizona family law attorneys at Corso & Rhude know the perils of child support overpayment and are here to help Arizona residents who feel they may be overpaying for child support. Scottsdale, AZ, United States., April 23, 2013 -- The Arizona family law attorneys at Corso & Rhude know the perils of child support overpayment and are here to help Arizona residents who feel they may be overpaying for child support. Overpayment of child support Overpayment of child support in Arizona can cause significant legal and financial problems for divorced parents. Child support, outlined in an Arizona divorce decree, is controlled by the Arizona Attorney General's Office and the clearinghouse that processes payments is under its jurisdiction. “Because payments are controlled and debited by the clearinghouse, making sure that each child support payment is correct is essential,” said Christopher P. Corso, Esq., of the Arizona family law firm. “As experienced family law attorneys, we have handled numerous cases involving overpayment of child support and our family law attorneys have seen the effects of not hiring a lawyer to handle such cases.” Hiring an experienced family law attorney now is the best strategy when disputing child support overpayment in Arizona. Why? Because once a parent files a motion on their own, any lawyer retained has to wait until that motion clears the legal process. This can result in more legal fees, more overpayments of child support and the potentially drawn out battle of having to file a civil suit to collect if the child turns 18 before the case is resolved. “The amount of money to fix a child support overpayment vs. hiring a family law attorney to do it right the first time can be much more,” Corso said. Don't Do It Yourself! Because so many family law forms are available online (including divorce petitions) many Arizonans believe they can go it alone when challenging a family law matter such as child support overpayment. This couldn't be farther from the truth. “Submitting your own petitions to family law court means having to see those petitions through until the end - even if they are filled out wrong or you later hire a lawyer,” said John M. Rhude, Esq., one of the firm’s founding partners. “Before any lawyer can file a new motion, your original petition - mistakes and all - must make it through the court system.” Hiring a family law attorney now means Corso & Rhude can have the Arizona Attorney General's Office put a hold on current child support so our family law attorneys can fight the issue while it is in limbo. Emergency motions As family law attorneys, Corso & Rhude can file an emergency motion on its client's behalf, resolving the dispute in as little as one to two months. But doing so means making sure that a client contacts Corso & Rhude first. If a client has already filed a motion, expect it to take six months to clear before anything else can be filed. Filing a child support overpayment motion without legal counsel can slow the whole process down for the family law attorney a client eventually hires. Children Who Turn 18 Collecting back overpayments of child support in Arizona changes dramatically once a child turns 18. Once a legal adult, the Arizona Attorney General's Office no longer has jurisdiction over a child support claim. Instead, parents must file a civil suit in Arizona to collect the overpayment. “Because of this, it's important to address child support overpayment early on, when your legal options are greater,” Rhude said. The family law attorneys at Corso & Rhude have seen cases where the clearinghouse has taken additional money out after the child in question turns 18. In these instances, the parent's only recourse is to sue the other parent in civil court - a much tougher option.
