When a child's parents are divorcing, or when they are unmarried, child support determinations will need to be made. The goal of Washington family law determinations in regard to child support is to ensure that the child's best interests are considered at all times.
We handle mediation, arbitration, and negotiation, and can help you do a lot of the work yourself, if your divorce is uncomplicated and uncontested. Ask about our low fees for specific types of services.
At the Redmond law office of Magnuson Lowell P.S., our lawyers represent both parties in child support matters: those seeking child support payments as well as those who will be required to make payments. In both circumstances, we work to ensure that your financial interests are protected, and that your child's needs are considered at all times. We provide assistance to individuals in Bellevue, Redmond and other nearby areas.
The Washington state child support schedule considers the financial circumstances of each parent, the financial needs of the child, and other factors to determine child support payments. However, parties do not necessarily have to accept the amount of support indicated by the child support schedule. Working with an experienced family law attorney can help to ensure that the child support amount is fair and accurate based on your financial circumstances.
The child support lawyers at Magnuson Lowell P.S. are committed to considering and understanding your financial situation, and that of your child. We will reply honestly and with common sense to your questions and concerns about child support.
We also help clients seek a modification of child support if either party's circumstances have changed significantly.
