How is child support calculated?
In Washington state, child support payments are determined by statutory guidelines. Factors that are considered include the gross monthly income of each party, health care expenses for the children, day care expenses and any special needs. The guidelines also consider the number of children and child custody arrangements. It may be possible to deviate from the guidelines. Attorney Thangkhiew can answer any questions you may have about this.
Can changes be made to a divorce decree?
Modification to a divorce decree may be sought months or years after a divorce has been finalized. However, certain time requirements must be followed in cases of child custody. Parents may request modification to parenting plans because of a substantial change in circumstances. Reasons can range from suspected abuse or neglect in one parent’s home to a parent wishing to relocate to another county, city or state. Child support modifications are also requested based upon a substantial change such as increased earnings, job loss, remarriage and other events that change a person’s financial situations. Our firm represents people who are requesting modifications as well as those who want to contest the proposed changes.
