Washington State uses a formula to determine how much child support will be paid from the supporting parent to the custodial parent.

Those who believe their circumstances are such that a deviation is warranted need to understand how courts decide on these adjustments.

How child abuse or neglect affects family legal issues

An unfortunate aspect of family law in Washington is one that happens all too frequently: child abuse and neglect. Many people might not be fully aware of what legal avenues are available to them to do something about this. Sometimes, it has an effect on custody and there is the threat of violence precluding a parent from moving forward to settle these family legal issues. Understanding how the legal system views these matters can help a parent settle the dispute, or another relative can take steps to protect the child.

Parents who are facing this possibility must understand how the law works, what a relocation will entail, how it encompasses the relationship with children and visitation rights.
