Thinking about divorce? Research can help with decision-making

Making any major decision deserves proper time and consideration. Utah residents who are thinking about filing for divorce certainly want to make sure it is the right decision for their circumstances. Before making any hasty choices, they may want to do their research.

How can you be sure your custody plan will work well?

How will you and your spouse parent after divorce? Even Utah parents who do not necessarily get along see the value in working together to provide their children with stability and security long-term. One practical way to do this is to draft a parenting plan together that will work well for your family.

Child support may still be necessary with joint custody

When Utah parents divorce, they may think long and hard about the custody arrangements they hope to have. In many cases, parents believe that joint custody is right for them and their children, and some may believe that child support is not necessary for such an arrangement. However, that is not always the case.

Divorce during retirement means focusing on finances

Ending a marriage at any age can come with significant complications. However, Utah residents who choose to divorce during their retirement years may have more significant financial repercussions to consider. Because they are not actively generating an income in most cases, it is important that individuals learn what financial changes they may face.

Is preparing for divorce before the wedding wise?

Getting married is an exciting time in any Utah resident's life. While many individuals are likely focused on choosing the right venue and caterer, there are other matters that it may be wise to address. Though most couples do not enter into a marriage with the intention to divorce, it is important to prepare for the possibility before tying the knot.

Custody arrangements can affect child support payments

The outcomes of one Utah divorce case can be vastly different from another. This is particularly true when one case involves parents and the other does not. As a result of divorce, one parent may end up having to pay child support, and that detail can be a cause of concern for some.

  • 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...
