How is Washington temporary support calculated?

Washington temporary support is the support that is ordered to by paid while a divorce or paternity action is pending.  This is the period between when a case is filed and when final orders are entered.  Washington temporary support is determined and set based on the Washington State Child Support Schedule.  All WA child support is based on the Washington child support guidelines.

After a party has petitioned the Court for help with child support, either through a divorce action or a parentage action, a temporary order may be entered. The Court will use the standards listed above to determine what the temporary child support amount should be. The Court may also take into account that this is only a temporary order and may take into account other factors based on a case by case situation when determine the temporary support amount.
