How much would you pay in Arkansas child support?

June 6, 2016

The number one question I get from family law clients is how much is child support in Arkansas? Child support varies based on the number of children that you have and your income. Many parents are fearful when approaching the topic of child support; however, Arkansas child support laws are in place to provide for your child(ren) while taking into consideration your living expenses and ability to pay.
