Post-Decree Matters

Life after divorce – a post-decree modification attorney can help.

Once a divorce agreement has been reached, there might still be need for legal help. After all, children grow older and obligations change – as do the opportunities for new jobs and relationships.

The Seattle Family Law Group handles all aspects for divorce, including:

  • Modifications
  • Parent relocation
  • Enforcement of divorce orders and agreements
  • Step-parent adoptions


Requirements for post decree matters.

Various alterations to parenting agreements, child support orders or spousal maintenance, require a “substantial change” in life circumstances like serious illnesses, unemployment, a substantial rise or decline in earnings.

When parents decide to relocate, typically if a parent objects or petition the move, the party wishing to relocate must show the court the move will be in the best interest of the child or children involved. In cases where a stepparent wishes to adopt a child or children, the same standard applies.
