Consider coming to divorce terms before going to court

Ending a marriage is not an easy process. Fortunately, Utah residents going through this event can take steps to make their own cases go as smoothly as possible. Often, discussing divorce matters before heading to court and trying to come to agreements on the issues could help with that endeavor.

Some of the major issues that soon-to-be ex-couples may want to go over are property division, child custody, financial matters like alimony and child support, and debt division. These topics can easily become contentious, but if individuals make the decision to work together to come to terms, they may be able to save themselves time and money in the future. Rather than having to go through multiple court proceedings to have a judge come to vital decisions, the parties could instead have their decisions approved by the court.

If parties do want their cases to go as quickly as possible, it is important that they do their part to provide necessary information. If an attorney requests certain documents, it is wise to provide those documents as quickly as possible. If a person is uncooperative, he or she may only make the process more difficult.

No one wants to go through a divorce that drags on. Though long proceedings can certainly happen under certain circumstances, Utah residents can do their part to help move their cases along. If they have concerns about particular issues, they can discuss those matters with their legal counsel in hopes of having the matters resolved in a timely manner.

  • 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...
