Can adoption subsidy off-set child support obligation?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Vancouver, WA

I am doing research on adoption subsidy in Washington State and Arizona State. I have searched many websites and have contradicting information. I would like to get some clarity and would like to receive facts and advise. Thank you to all that respond!

    Answered . I have seen this done by the court, but you need to bring your case to the court to have a judge decide. The adoption subsidy is considered income to the parent with the children and added to his/her income on the child support worksheet and that parent gets to keep 100% of it.
