Helpful tips for those struggling with divorce

Virtually no couple weds with the end in mind. Yet, nearly half of all marriages in Utah and across the United States end in divorce. Marriages end for a number of reasons. However, nearly every divorce comes with a great deal of emotional and psychological stress. The following tips could be helpful for those going through a marital breakup.

Ending a marriage is an emotionally-charged experience, but it is very important to keep in mind that divorce is a legal process and not dictated by emotions. In most cases, one spouse often feels hurt by the other party's actions, so they may let emotional issues carry more weight in their minds than a court will provide. Try to think of the situation from a legal standpoint instead of a personal point of view. 

One of the keys to getting through a divorce is cooperation. Each spouse may enter the divorce with powerful feelings toward ownership of certain properties or other relevant interests. In order to have a chance at resolving these issues, each party must be open to compromise. Also, if children are present, never bring them into disputes or force them to choose sides during divorce proceedings.

The end of a marriage is always a stressful time, so don't be afraid to seek professional help. Counseling can be constructive for those who need to talk through the experience or need a third party's perspective. For those in Utah who have legal questions about any aspect of divorce, seeking the services of an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney can prove very beneficial.

  • 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...
