Seattle, WA asked in Child Support for Washington

Q: Will my income be included in my live in boyfriend's child support calculation?

I'm looking for info on child support. My live in boyfriend is an attorney, he is no longer practicing law and has no intentions of doing so. He is fully employed, though making less than he did as an attorney, two years ago. He is looking to have his child support updated to reflect his current income, and is not looking for a reduced amount from the normal calculation. (He makes less at his current job than when the child support docs were originally computed/filed). Is there any way my income is going to be included in his calculation for child support?
