In general, no. The rule in Washington is that the income of a new spouse has to be disclosed in any child support adjustment or modification, but, is generally not used for calculating child support.

Subsequent spouse (or even live in partners) income is not taken into account to make or modify a support order except in extraordinary cases. An extraordinary case is where not taking that income into account would make the child suffer extreme or severe hardship.
