Post-Decree Matters

Divorce is challenging time of transition. Dealing with the aftermath of property division and debt division and the change in living situations can be stressful and difficult. The costs of moving, a new household and other financial issues can cause problems in maintenance or an existing child custody order. Fortunately, these post-decree matters may be resolved through a legal modification.

When Modifications May be Necessary

As we all live in changing times, original agreements may not stand the test of time. Circumstances change with regard to employment, remarriage, the birth of other children in a new marriage and other issues that could impact the ability to pay a court ordered support payment. Changes in child custody agreements, changing needs of children and relocation are all issues that could require a modification of an existing court order. Modifications are available as a means to address post-decree matters that occur after the dissolution of a marriage.

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
