My ex and I are going to court to modify his payments which were made to be $361 a month. I know however he will fight this and ask for it to be lowered. For the past three years he has only paid $80 a month plus nothing for my childs first two years of life. Honestly $361 is easy on him. So I would like to know the average payments in the State of Washington to send to the courts so they think twice about letting him lower his payment when $361 is lower than most. I am not out to get money from him I just want him to help take care of my our child and what is best for our child $80-$100 won't cut it.
