CHILD SUPPORT APP COULD HELP WASHINGTON PARENTS STAY ON SCHEDULE

After a Washington couple with children divorces, typically one parent is considered the custodial parent and the other is considered the noncustodial parent. Commonly, the noncustodial parent is required to make child support payments to the custodial parent in order to help pay for the children's needs. The amount of support necessary depends on varying circumstances, and each individual situation could have a different amount of money to be paid.

Going through the financial issues that come along with such situations can be a bit daunting to deal with. As a result, a program has been developed by a woman who was divorced herself. The program offers organizational and scheduling tools to help divorced individuals better manage their support payments and other divorce-related finances.

The program may soon be on its way to becoming an easily accessible app on certain electronic products. At this time the program is free, but may later come with a monthly fee for use. Having such a program available could potentially help parents stay on schedule with their support payments.

While such a product could potentially help from an organizational standpoint, the child support payments themselves could continue to cause issue for some parents. At times, a noncustodial parent may feel that their payment amount may need an adjustment, and in some cases, custodial parents are not receiving the payments to which they are entitled. In situations such as these, information on Washington state child support laws could help individuals determine how to handle addressing these issues.
