Making sure your parenting plan will work long-term

As a parent, one of the most important things you can do during a divorce is to work for a custody and parenting plan that protects your children's best interests above all else. Divorce is difficult, and it's not always easy to work with the other parent on matters that will affect your relationship with your kids. It is in the interests of every member of your family to have a parenting plan that makes sense long-term.

Divorce can be frustrating but focus can help

Ending a marriage is often one of the biggest decisions a person makes in life. It is not unusual for individuals to be married for decades before having to decide whether disentangling their lives from their spouse is worth their future happiness. Many people in Utah and across the country do decide that divorce is worth it, but of course, the process can be difficult.

Personal considerations play a role in gray divorce

Every relationship is different and so is every person. Each Utah resident has a different mindset when it comes to marriage and ending a marriage and how to approach either. Some people may try to work through their marital problems as best as possible, and others may understand when its time to move on. In either case, older individuals could end up going through a gray divorce.

Women are more likely to file for divorce

Gender inequality has been an issue that people, namely women, have dealt with in various aspects of their lives. From work to home life, many women in Utah and across the country may feel imbalances that leave them less than satisfied with their lives. When this dissatisfaction arises in marriages, it may be women initiating divorce proceedings.

Asset division can be a tedious part of divorce

Ending a marriage is a complicated endeavor. Individuals who have lived together for years have likely accumulated various property that will need to be divided during asset division proceedings. Utah residents may find the idea of divvying up property tedious, and it certainly can be.

  • 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...
