Working With State Law
Like most other states, Washington has its own laws about how spousal and child support agreements are formed. The factors in spousal support will influence how much one spouse will receive for themselves or to raise their children and include factors like:
- The total income of both parties
- If there are children from other relationships involved
- The earning potential of each spouse
- Military benefits, including BAH (basic allowance for housing) and BAS (basic allowance for substance)
- Disability benefits
- The needs of the requestor vs. the requested’s ability to pay
If a spouse is not paying the support a divorce decree calls for them to do, federal law can grant an interception of a tax return to pay any delinquent support. Wage garnishments and seizing property are also possible options.
