It is possible to adjust the terms of an alimony order?

Ending a marriage can do a real number on your finances. In some cases, one spouse may require alimony to help keep him or her on stable financial ground. Maintenance in Utah is usually only a temporary thing, and any initial orders granted are pretty firm. However, under particular circumstances, it may be possible to adjust the terms.

Cooperation can go a long way during divorce

It can take a lot of time and thought to decide that ending a marriage is for the best. Some people may come to this realization after yet another fight with a spouse, and others may come to it more gradually as they realize they are simply no longer happy in the relationship. Whatever the case, it is important to remember that divorce can be difficult if not approached in the right way.

Child custody challenges can be overcome even at a distance

Having to be away from their kids can be difficult for any Utah parent. Distance can happen for many reasons, and divorce is a common one. Some parents may end up moving away after ending a marriage, and as a result, there is a considerable distance between one parent and the kids. In such cases, child custody arrangements may be a bit more difficult to manage.

Child support can be a double-edged sword for paying parents

After Utah parents get divorced, it is common for there to be a change in financial responsibilities. In many cases, one parent will have to pay child support to the other in order to meet the needs of the children. Though a court order typically details the terms of this arrangement, conflict can still arise over this type of support.

Looking into the future is good for divorce prep

When a marriage is no longer working, many people in Utah and across the country choose to end the relationship. It can sometimes be a struggle to make this decision, and going through the divorce process is typically not a walk in the park either. However, with planning, individuals may give themselves a better chance of getting through the process quickly.

  • 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...
