Child support: Washington State

Spokane, WA |
Filed under: Child support

Can the divorcing parties agree on a fair amount for child support to be granted by a judge. My wife says she is not out for money from me and is willing to agree to a set amount if a judge will grant that.

  1. RCW 26.19.075 provides standards for deviation from the standard calculation. The statutes are here: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?Cite=26 .

    Whether the judge in your case would agree to the deviation depends on the facts.

    The free online WA child support calculator is at http://www.courts.wa.gov/ssgen/ . You can use the calculator to estimate what the standard basic child support would be in your case.

    You may want to review your facts and options with an attorney.
