Written records may prove useful in high-conflict Utah divorce

When dealing with the difficulties of ending a marriage, it may seem like there are few options for getting through the process quickly and amicably. This feeling may be even more prevalent for individuals who are dealing with a spouse with a high-conflict personality. These parties often want to make the divorce process or any other situation more difficult, but there are ways that could help move proceedings along.

First, Utah residents who are divorcing may want to ensure that they keep thorough written records of everything they find pertinent. These records may prove especially important when it comes to communications between both parties. People can keep track of what each person has said, and high-conflict individuals may be less likely to start arguments if they know their are records of the conversations through email or text.

Having agreements in writing can also work to prevent possible conflict. Though some individuals may feel that verbal agreements could work for their circumstances, if a person is dealing with a high-conflict individual, verbal agreements could easily become twisted. If written records exist of the agreements, it may be more difficult for one party to attempt to say they did not agree to the terms.

Though it may take more preparation, dealing with a high-conflict personality during divorce does not necessarily mean that there is no way to help the process go as smoothly as possible. Utah residents who are concerned that their proceedings may become combative may want to find out more information on the various legal options and preparation strategies that could be available to them. Speaking with experienced attorneys could also help interested parties better understand how to potentially approach their legal proceedings.

  • 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...
