Child Support Modification
One of the main issues that come up during divorce is child support. In Washington state, there is a child support schedule based on the income of both parents and the number of children and their ages. There are, however, many occasions when determining child support becomes more complex.
If one parent is self-employed, it can be difficult to accurately determine income. There may also be issues concerning a downward deviation, based upon factors such as the noncustodial parent’s time with the children and children from a previous relationship or a new family. I also help clients deal with issues of medical insurance, uninsured medical expenses, and day care expenses for their children.
Child Support Modification Post-Divorce
I have worked with numerous clients during my 37 years as an attorney to help them navigate child support issues. Besides seeking my advice on child support matters during their divorce, clients also need help with post-divorce child support adjustment or modification.
Learn how I can help you with changes to your original child support order, including:
- Reviewing income of the parents to determine if support should be recalculated
- Adding a provision in the divorce order to revisit the issue of child support every two years
- Re-addressing child support issues once the child turns 12
- Modifying child support if the noncustodial parent has been laid off
- Post-secondary support for college tuition and expenses
