Second opinion] Former spouse is unemployed and supported by her husband (who makes $80K/year). Yet, her child support
is set at the absolute minimum ($50/month for each of our 3 children which have been primarily in my custody for years). We are thinking of allowing our oldest child to live with her, but are afraid of the child support obligation we could incur if her husbands wage is not accounted for (I make $100K/year). Could you give us an estimate of what a likely child support obligation we would incur if we allowed our oldest to (15years old) to move in with her?
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Oh, sorry, thought this was a Washington state (our legal residence) website.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Just the original child support obligation, which was set when she was (and continues to be) unemployed and her new husband was only working part time (he now has a steady job at $80/k year).
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope, just needs to be a Washington State lawyer, our county is Pierce County
