These are just some of the questions or concerns you may have if divorce is in your future. Our divorce attorneys will sit down with you and help you plan a course of action that will put you in the best position possible once the divorce is filed.

Our legal team has 34 years of combined experience, and our Seattle divorce lawyer, Sara Kim, has the insight and client-focused approach needed to address the critical issues involved such as property division, debt division, spousal support or maintenance as well as the vital issues of child custody and child support. Our firm provides professional, reasonably priced legal services for all matters pertaining to family law. While in many divorce cases it is challenging for a couple to agree, in addition to contested divorce, we also offer various alternative fee arrangements as well as flat fee arrangement in uncontested divorce.

For those that have not been granted custody of children, there is still the option of pursuing visitation rights so that you have the opportunity of keeping contact on a regular basis. Each case will have its own challenges and our team is equipped to take on even the most difficult of circumstances, such as those involved in high net worth divorce, when larger amounts of assets are involved, or when a domestic violence protection order is required to further protect an individual against any possible violence.

How can a divorce lawyer help?

In all cases we handle, we exercise diligence and apply our depth of knowledge in all issues whether it relates to children or finances. Our expertise and years of practice allow us to identify creative strategies to bring the matter to a resolution with a focus towards expediency and efficiency. It is often necessary to develop a compelling, well-documented case when the other party is making unreasonable demands. We are zealous litigators with extensive trial experience in difficult, hotly contested cases. We have access to respected experts to call upon to support your case when necessary.

When your assets or children are at risk, the quality, resources and insight of your divorce lawyer are critical. Our knowledge and experience allows us to immediately identify all issues that may arise in a divorce proceeding and pursue, when necessary, all options available. This may include assisting clients to obtain immediate relief from the court through temporary orders, and/or to obtain protection orders or restraining orders to ensure our clients are protected when safety is an issue. We explain and assist our clients in deciding whether to seek a legal separation in lieu of a divorce, knowing that this decision is not for everyone.

We are also qualified to assist in modifications to existing court orders when there has been a change in circumstances that necessitates the need for an alteration to the original court order, such as altering the support or visitation rights awarded. We help clients to deal with other post-decree matters, whether it relates to clarification of an order, dispute resolution when there is conflict or enforcement if there is a violation or noncompliance. We also handle many parentage cases where the parties are not married but have a child in common. Because actions you take before and during the divorce will have a lasting impact on your life, your children's best interests, and your financial security, it is critical that you obtain competent and reliable information early in the process.

We, at Blair & Kim, PLLC, are knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate divorce lawyers. We will work with you to educate you on the process, strategize and develop a plan so that you can be in the strongest position possible for a desired settlement or trial outcome. We will guide and counsel you to achieve the best possible result, quickly and cost-effectively so that you can move on with your life.

Client Reviews
Mark C. Blair has no rival in his field in Seattle. A consummate professional. Communication was brief, straightforward, easy to understand, and without a typical condescending tone you can sometimes experience from attorneys on top of their field. Correspondence was timely and always affective. Any in need of criminal defense, should have a conversation with Mr. Blair, and you will quickly see and feel, no further contacts, referrals, or phone calls need be made. The money and time that can be saved by streamlining future contact and collateral damage in the sentencing process will far and away be worth every penny of the fee structure. Thank you very very much Mark Blair. N.Mark French
Sara Kim of BlairKim is a great attorney. I had never before had representation or dealt with the legal system and she made it very easy for me. She converted the legalese into laymans terms for me and helped me to understand the steps of the process. When I hesitated on certain decisions, Sara gave me the confidence and encouragement to proceed – especially since it was most beneficial to me in the long run. Sara is very straightforward and professional while also being personable and pleasant to deal with. Tamara
Sara Kim was the perfect lawyer for our situation. We were determined not to involve the courts in our divorce. Within the first 30 minutes of consultation, Sara proposed an equitable formula for division of property which we used to negotiate an agreement that felt fair to both of us. Our flat fee arrangement with Sara covered the filing of paperwork which alleviated much pressure for us during a very stressful time. I highly recommend Sara for her flexibility, professionalism, and efficiency. Carrie
