Lawyers can assist clients with their child support issues

Child support is an essential component in making sure that one's child is properly provided for, so that he or she can grow and thrive. Payments, therefore, will correlate with the financial needs of the child and custodial parent. However, the noncustodial parent's financial needs are also important as well.

In Washington State, the amount of child support owed takes into account both parents' income, as well as how many children are being supported. While there is a statutory formula the judge uses to calculate child support, there are variables that may be taken into account. These include each parent's employment status, the health of both the child and the parents, what the child's health care and child care needs are, the assets and debt of each household and how much time the child spends with each parent.

Child support can be litigated, but collaborative law, such as that practiced by the Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Robinson, P.S., may be an option for some. Collaborative law allows parents to work together to reach an agreement out-of-court regarding child support. Such agreements may be more satisfactory to each party. But, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Robinson, P.S., understand that not every relationship between two parents is so amicable. They are prepared to take their client's case to court, to ensure their client's best interests, along with those of the child, are represented.

In the end, what is most important is that the child is well cared for. Parents who have more questions about child support in Washington may want to review the following website for information.
