An amicable divorce can turn contentious over child custody

Like other couples around the country, many Utah residents sign prenuptial agreements in order to set the stage for an amicable divorce should one occur in the future. Prenups are often effective at dividing up a couple's property, but, when it comes to child custody matters, the parties' hopes for friendly ends to their marriages could be dashed.

How do Utah judges determine alimony?

When a Utah couple divorces, one party may make less money than the other, which puts that individual at a financial disadvantage as they each set up separate households. Even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are able to amicably negotiate a large portion of the divorce settlement, the issue of alimony can be contentious. As a result, you might end up taking the issue before a judge if you are unable to come to an agreement.
