You can reduce conflict during the stress of back-to-school time

Summer can be a fun time for Utah families, but at some point, this season will end and it will be time to start preparing for the beginning of another school year. Back-to-school time can be stressful for some, with expensive clothes to buy, school fees to pay and school supplies to shop for. In some cases, this significantly increases conflict and disputes between parents.

Individuals can help themselves have a smooth divorce process

Though most people would likely rather not have to go through the process of ending their marriages, it happens. When this situation does arise, those Utah residents facing the proceedings likely want them to go as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Though many aspects of divorce are out of a person's control, such as the time it takes the court to process paperwork, individuals can work to actively address their cases in other ways.

Older people going through divorce need to focus on finances

Ending a marriage at any age has its difficulties. However, individuals who divorce in their younger years may have a better chance of handling the financial repercussions that can come along with making such a major life change. If older individuals choose to dissolve their marriage, paying attention to those financial repercussions is important.

Slower transitions may be helpful during divorce

Many Utah residents get married with the intention of having their relationships last the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, numerous people find themselves ending their marriages much sooner than expected. Though divorce is not uncommon, each case and its difficulties are unique to the parties involved.

Asset division can play a role when moving after divorce

Ending a marriage typically means that Utah residents will need to make major changes in their lives. For some, that could mean selling the marital home and finding new living arrangements or at least one person moving out of the home. Moving at any time can be hectic, and when the move takes place due to a divorce, it can be even more challenging, especially due to the outcomes of asset division and other matters.

Scheduling and family details can affect child custody terms

Most Utah parents want to avoid putting their children through unnecessarily difficult situations. Unfortunately, not all such events can be avoided, and for many parents, going through divorce is something they may view as a necessary evil, especially when thinking about their kids. Many marital relationships do not work out, but parents can try to continue parenting together through their child custody plans.

Will you have to change your retirement plans after divorce?

You've probably already given some thought to what your retirement years will look like, even if you aren't near that point in your life. Regardless of what you hope to do in your golden years, you know that a divorce could affect your plans. When a marriage is over, the two parties will have to divide marital property, including certain types of retirement and long-term savings accounts.

  • 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...
