Making sure a child support award is fair and appropriate

Parents in Washington who have ended their relationship with one another may have many concerns. First and foremost, they may be concerned about the well-being of their child. They will want to see that their child gets through the divorce or break-up as well as is possible. They may be concerned with how much parenting time they will have with their child. Finally, they may be concerned about child support, wanting to see that a fair amount is set.

In Washington, there are statutory guidelines used to determine child support. Child support in the state is based on each parent's income and how many children are being supported. However, there are some variables that may come into play.

Some of these variables include each parent's income and employment status. The parents' and child's health may also be considered. In addition to the child's everyday expenses, there may also be health care expenses and child care expenses to take into account. Each parent's household assets and debts may be another variable. Finally, how much time the child spends with each parent may be a variable.
