Yes. If you owe past child support, pursue to ARS 25-505, et seq., DES or its agent "may issue a limited income withholding order to any . . . payor or other holder of a nonperiodic or lump sum payment that is owed or held for [your] benefit." According to ARS 25-505(E)(10), a "lump sum payment" includes "personal injury awards."
