No need to be confused during the Utah divorce process

Any divorced Utah couple can attest to the fact that ending their marriages changed nearly every aspect of their lives. Many people feel lost and unsure of where to turn when they decide to divorce. Still other people either do not know what questions to ask or feel uneasy asking what they may feel is an irrelevant question.

However, not asking those questions may cause more harm than good in the end. Because financial advisers, mental health counselors and other professionals deal with the predominant issues in their field every day, they can sometimes forget to explain things fully. Professional assistance has little value if the client does not feel he or she has a complete understanding of the issue. No one should feel bashful about asking questions.

Without a full understanding of the relevant issues, a decision could be made that has an adverse impact on the future. Each party should be satisfied that he or she knows exactly what the issue is, what is being asked and how any decision will affect the parties and any children involved. It may not be possible for both parties to walk away with everything they want, but they should at least understand what they are getting and giving up before doing so.

When it comes to divorce, no one really "wins" -- especially when children are involved. In an amicable Utah divorce, even with professional help, the final decisions are typically left to the parties. The goal is to give everyone involved the best start to their new lives as possible while achieving a divorce settlement that is fair and comprehensive. That may not happen if one or both parties fail to make an informed decision.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
