An unhappy marriage does not have to mean a difficult divorce

Being in an unhappy situation can be difficult for any Utah resident. Sometimes, it is challenging to know exactly what is making a person unhappy and to determine what steps would help that individual work toward obtaining more happiness. For some, their marriages may be an issue that leaves them feeling unhappy and unsatisfied, and they may consider divorce in efforts to regain some contentment in life.

Do you need to modify your divorce decree?

The idea of getting a divorce is something that many people in Utah and across the country consider to be complicated. You may have known that ending your marriage was the best step to take due to the relationship issues and other unresolved matters that dragged your marriage down. You may have dreaded having to go through the legal process involved, but you gritted your teeth and did what was necessary.

Some Utah residents may fear that they cannot afford a divorce

Living in an unhappy marriage can cause a great deal of strain on any Utah resident's life. Unfortunately, many people may think that they have to remain in these relationships because divorce can be expensive, and they do not know if they can afford it. Before completely disregarding this option, individuals may want to take steps to help themselves prepare financially in efforts to move forward with the process.

New trend could present child custody issues for single parents

When many Utah residents think of co-parenting, they think of two formerly married parents who divorced but still want to work together to raise their children. However, "co-parenting" also refers to a relatively new trend involving single people coming to an agreement to have a child and parent together but not have any type of romantic relationship. While this option could work for some, it still brings child custody issues to the forefront.

Facing the unknown and moving on is possible after divorce

The idea of making a significant change in life can be daunting. Many Utah residents may delay making such changes because they worry about the repercussions they will face and the unpredictability that comes along with leaving familiarity behind. As a result, some people put off filing for divorce because they think staying in an unhappy relationship that they know is better than stepping into the unknown.

  • 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...
