It is not wise to use attorneys as therapists during divorce

Outside help is often needed when Utah residents are ending their marriages. There are many emotional, personal and financial aspects to consider during divorce that individuals may not be able to contend with on their own. However, it may be important to keep in mind that any professionals enlisted for help likely have individual roles that should not overlap.

The decisions people make can sometimes land in them in troubling spots. For some, the choices they make can result in their facing criminal charges for DUI. While their actions that lead to the arrest may not have been best, they can work to make better choices moving forward as they address the formal allegations.

Repeat drunk driving offenses can lead to an increase in punishment if an individual is convicted of charges. If a person does have multiple DUI arrests on his or her record, it may signal that the person has an alcohol abuse problem and needs help. Unfortunately, while looking to obtain that help, they may also have to contend with new allegations.

Does an expensive engagement ring signal divorce?

When individuals find the person they believe will be the love of their life, they often want to shout it to the world. As a result, many Utah residents may end up having lavish weddings as a way to show their love. However, the results of a recent study that looked at wedding costs and divorce rates may be of interest.

How is child support calculated in Utah?

When getting ready to initiate divorce proceedings, it is normal to have a lot of questions about what post-divorce life will look like for you and your children. Will you come out on top financially? Will you have the funds you need to pay child support or, on the other side, will you receive enough in child support?

Lack of child support payments can lead to legal consequences

Having financial difficulties does not make a person a bad parent. However, not having a stable financial situation can make it hard for individuals to provide for their children and themselves. When a parent owes child support, he or she may think it best to simply not pay in order to stay afloat. Before taking this route, it may be important for Utah parents to remember that failing to make support payments can have legal consequences.

  • 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...
