Having the right records can help with asset division

Most Utah residents do not know the ins and outs of family law. As a result, they may not fully know what to expect when they go through divorces. Fortunately, they can help themselves by gaining information on the proceedings ahead and on how to avoid mistakes during important parts of the process, like asset division.

Changes in affection, communication issues may point to divorce

Many people believe that getting married will the happiest time in their lives. Certainly, this day can bring about much joy for many Utah residents, but some couples may have a hard time keeping that joyous feeling alive over the years. Unfortunately, many details of a relationship could potentially point to possible divorce.

Seeking revenge during divorce may only cause complications

When Utah residents decide to end their marriages, they may have many ideas about what the upcoming court proceedings will hold. It is certainly important to have goals when it comes to divorce outcomes, but it is also important to make sure that those goals are reasonable. If parties try to pursue unrealistic outcomes or have ulterior motives, cases can quickly become complicated.

Divorce becomes more complicated with false claims of abuse

Ending a marriage is complicated. Even if Utah residents want to divorce amicably, they can still face setbacks. When the situation is contentious and involves false accusations, the legal proceedings can become even more complicated. Often, parents who want sole custody of their children or who simply want to seek revenge on the other party may carry out unseemly actions in efforts to reach their desired outcomes.

Requesting to file divorce records under seal

You may have always considered yourself a private person. You shared aspects of your life with people close to you, with your business associates when necessary and your spouse. However, you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, and you may fear that your privacy will no longer exist during the legal proceedings.

New year, new alimony tax laws

Laws are often under scrutiny, and even laws that have been in place for decades could suddenly see changes. Now that it is 2019, changes made to tax law regarding alimony are now in effect. Some people believe that the changes may make divorce more difficult for individuals in Utah and elsewhere.

  • 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...
