The Revised code of Washington section 26.10.001 prescribes the incomes shares model for computing the child support amount to be borne by each parent.
- Referred to as Child support economic table, it lays down the basic amount which parents have to provide for child support in case of a divorce.
- In addition to the amounts prescribed in the table, parents have to incur additional expenses for child’s education, travel, health, etc.
- The gross income will be computed after deducting gift money, food coupons, alimony, etc.
- The income of the parents, independent income sources of the child, parenting time, etc. will also be considered for determining the child support amount.
