Washington State Child Support Laws

Like most states, Washington clearly defines the laws and the considerations used to determine who will pay child support in a divorce and how much they will pay. Our family law attorneys have the experience and knowledge that allow us to use these laws to give our clients a reasonably accurate understanding of what they can expect. Child support arrangements are largely based off of three factors:

  • The residential schedule of the child custody agreement
  • The respective incomes of both spouses
  • Any special needs the children may have that add to the costs of support

We understand the laws of child support, and we know the circumstances that the court will use to consider deviations from the Washington child support guidelines. We will use this experience and knowledge to protect your interests.

Understanding Child Support Modification

Life circumstances can change, and sometimes the child support agreement that was initially established may no longer be feasible. Whether you are the paying or receiving parent, it's important to understand that child support orders can be modified under certain circumstances. Our experienced Spokane child support lawyers can help you navigate the process of seeking a modification to ensure that the child support arrangement reflects your current financial situation.

Common reasons for seeking a child support modification include:

  • Change in income
  • Change in employment status
  • Change in the child's needs
  • Change in custody or visitation arrangement
  • Healthcare or medical expenses

At Maxey Law Office, we are committed to advocating for fair and reasonable child support arrangements that prioritize the best interests of the child. Contact us today to learn more about your options for child support modification.
