how to calculate support
« on: Feb 06, 2013, 05:26:18 PM »
Been 'plugging' numbers into the WA state CS calculator, but it doesn't take into account new children in my home (just one) My caseworker said new children in the NSP home can be a reason for modification however; I do not want to modify if I can't get a really good indication of the transfer payment. Any insight how WA state courts deviate from the economic tables to account for the new children?

This one has a place for other children in the home (biological).  It's under #25

Thank you Tigger.
I see, however it appears the basic support obligation is the same whether I enter the information or not in line #25.

In my state, it does not matter the custodial parent income (they ask for it but it does not change the numbers). It just goes by non-custodial parent income with percentages, then you can get credit for certain things (travel expenses...). Some states do not allow the second children credit as the thinking is that you knew you had that responsibility and chose to have more children.
