What can I do?

So, you’ve read about the newly proposed Arizona Child Support Guidelines and you want to know what you can do to help stop this policy.  Here are a few suggestions:

1) Learn as much as possible about the newly proposed guidelines by pointing your browser to http://www.supreme.state.az.us/CSGRC/

2) Try out the COBS Calculator on that site and find out what you might be paying in support next year.

3) Share your story, tell us what you are paying now vs. what the new calculator spits out.

4) Call or e-mail your legislators.

5) Call or write the Arizona State Supreme Court Justices

6) Volunteer your time to help our efforts.

7) Donate money to this effort so that we can roll back this policy before it becomes the law of the land.

    My child support is going to go up from 1200 t0 2800 per month under COBS.

    My ex is remarried, and they already have a higher standard of living that I do, but somehow that doesnt matter. The aim of COBS is to equalize the standard of living between both houses, but fails to account for all income in the house, only the lower income parent and the higher income parent are considered. This is insane.

    My ex is already gloating about how much she is going to get, and planning on buying a new car and taking a bermuda holiday with it.

    Now is the time to really step up our efforts to educate as many people as possible about COBS- we need to get the word out about the October 2nd Rally!! If you are reading this wondering “what can I do?” bring 3 other people you know who will be affected by COBS, even if they don’t really understand COBS yet, and come to the Wesley Bolin Park “Crush COBS” Rally Oct. 2nd from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Bring your children and supporters, we will have lots of kid friendly activities including a giant snowslide from AZ Iceman! A BBQ lunch is included with the $20 admission (per family of three). We will have a raffle with great prizes as part of our fundraiser to work towards a goal of hiring a economist and statistical expert to prove what we already know- COBS is flawed! Please use the sign up on the main page of the aspfl.org site to sign up to volunteer at the event or donate food towards the BBQ. If you want to know what you can do to help STOP COBS??? This is it- come to the Rally, sign the citizens petition, march on the State Court buiding and demand the media provide coverage!! Email the newsdesks at
    assignmentdesk@12news.com and fox10.desk@foxtv.com and tell them you have heard about the Rally, and want to know if there will be media coverage of the COBS issue. Email Senator Gray of the AJC and tell her about your concerns re:COBS. What we have done already is a trickle- now we need to turn it on full force!!!
