Washington attorneys can provide guidance on child support

Raising a child in a family setting is never easy. Divorced couples find it even more difficult to raise a child from a separate household. Child support forms an integral part of every divorce settlement in Gig Harbor, Washington, and beyond. In the best interests of the child, Washington courts order one parent to take child custody and the other to pay child support. It is mandatory to pay child support, which is used to pay everyday expenses and medical expenses for the child. Despite its importance to the child, some parents falter on child support payments.

If a parent is behind in child support payments, then the custodial parent should consult an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible. The Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Robinson, P.S., have attorneys with decades of experience in family law and can help address child support needs, while keeping the best interest of the child in mind.

In Washington State, child support is based on many factors, such as parental income, employment status, health of the parents, daycare, health needs of the child, health insurance availability from each parent, debt and assets of households and also the child's time spent in each household. This calculation can be difficult and only an experienced child support attorney can guide a divorcing parent.

Sometimes, a family situation may change drastically after divorce, with a parent losing a job or income decreasing, which might signal that a modification in child support is needed. Child support modification cases also need the support of an experienced attorney. Our experienced attorneys can help provide guidance in this matter as well.
