Washington Laws on Child Support

Under Washington state law, the parents of a minor child of a duty to provide adequate care and support. When a divorce results in one parent being awarded sole or primary custody of a minor child, the non-custodial parent can satisfy their duty to care for their child by paying child support to the custodial parent.

Washington courts determine the amount and duration of a parent’s child support obligations based on the parties’ respective financial resources, standard of living, and the extent of their parental time-sharing arrangements.

At Pacific Cascade Family Law, we have experience with the following child support issues:

  • Temporary child support
  • Permanent child support
  • Post-dissolution modification proceedings
  • Terms for automatic modification pursuant to a divorce decree

Spousal Support for Vancouver Residents

Under Washington law, spousal support – otherwise known as spousal maintenance or alimony – may be awarded to allow a financially disadvantaged spouse to maintain a certain standard of living until they become self-supporting. Accordingly, judges will carefully evaluate the respective financial conditions of the parties based on the evidence presented before the court.

Courts determine the appropriateness of awarding spousal support based on the following factors:

  • The financial condition of the spouse seeking support
  • The estimated time for the spouse to acquire skills and training to find employment
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The length of the marriage
  • The spouse’s age, physical and emotional state, expenses, and financial obligations
  • The other spouse’s ability to pay spousal support
