Planning for the Financial Needs of Your Children
Each parent must provide for their children. While married or cohabitating, this occurs naturally without much thought. But, after a divorce or separation, providing for children becomes a critical issue. This issue needs to be addressed to help ensure the financial needs of the children.
Child Support Formula
In most cases, the state of Washington child support formula will determine what the child support will be. They look at many factors including:
- The income of each parent
- The number of children
- Child custody
- Parenting time
- And more
One parent will typically provide financial support to the other to help care for the child.
