      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

      on!)

      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:

      https://www1.dshs.wa.gov/dcs/ and start the process.

      Good luck!
