What are a stepparent's responsibilities to their stepkids?

A person who marries another person who has children from a previous relationship becomes a stepparent to those kids. The stepparent-stepchild relationship can be a special one, but not all Washington residents who enter into these associations know what their rights and responsibilities are with regard to the children of their new partners. This post will generally discuss what role a stepparent may play in the life of their stepchild, but as with all legal matters readers should seek their own advice to have their legal questions answered.

Steps you can take in Washington to enforce child support

Custodial parents often hope that the end of the divorce proceedings means the end of conflict. After all, children who witness a lot of hostility between their parents could internalize more of the negativity of the divorce. Unfortunately, not all divorces end when the judge signs your divorce decree.

Support considerations for a Washington divorce

While it can be easy to focus one's attention on the emotional aspects of a divorce there are a number of financial issues that must be handled as well. For example, if and how the parties will manage an alimony agreement or order must be managed. The parties must also address how they will ensure that their children are financially provided for.
