Seattle Child Support Lawyer

Our firm can represent you in all aspects of child support, including:

  • • Determination of child support payments
  • • Modification and adjustment of child support orders
  • • Identification of income for child support
  • • Collection of back child support
  • • Paternity as it relates to child support

Under Washington law, the child support level is determined by the incomes of both parents and the amount of time the child spends with each. For the purposes of determining child support certain expenses such as taxes, health care insurance premiums, and pension contributions are deducted from income. If your spouse is self-employed, paid bonuses or commission income, a business owner, or paid in cash, our attorneys and our network of financial experts are skilled at identifying hidden income and calculating child support in these difficult situations. In some circumstances, the amount of child support can be less or more than the amount called for by the child support guidelines. Deviations from the guidelines may be indicated in cases of poverty, significant wealth, or when the children have special needs.

Post-Divorce Child Support Modifications, Adjustments, and Enforcement

The support level can change over time due to changes in the circumstances of either parent—such as an increase or decrease in income, disability, or a change in the child’s residential placement (custody). Gilson-Moreau &Associates, P.S. can go to court on your behalf when these or other events occur, with the aim of obtaining a modification or adjustment in the child support payment.
