You are talking about welfare here and not child support. In most cases
child support is based on BOTH parents income. Google Washington state Child
Support Guidelines and that will give you a rough estimate.
Fortunately for you, Washington state tends to be very diligent about
issuing child support once they’re aware there’s a need. (There may
not necessarily be a want…something I went round and round with them
If I remember correctly, the monies granted are based on income
received by the non-custodial parent, not assets. So the
house/cars/etc won’t likely factor in much. As far as how much, it’s
really hard to say. If your ex has a good lawyer (or doesn’t make much
money himself), you may be lucky to get $165 a month. If he decides to
just do the right thing, you could get over $400.
Your best bet would be to go to this website:
