What do I need to begin? When determining child support, family courts in Washington may consider a variety of factors, including:
- Income of both parties
- Number of children
- Amount of parenting time for non-custodial parent
- Day care expenses
- Medical insurance costs
- Other expenses, including special needs of the children
