Divorce Archives

Having set goals for divorce negotiations may prove helpful

Ending a marriage can lead Utah residents to face many questions they may not have considered before. Because divorce looks at many small facets of life, it can be difficult to know what information may prove most useful. However, having the right information could play a considerable role in settlement negotiations.

Broaching the topic of divorce with kids can prove challenging

Utah residents who have decided to move forward with dissolving their marriages may dread many aspects of the process. For parents, one of those most dreaded steps may be breaking the news to their children that their parents are getting divorced. Because divorce can be a sensitive topic for most children, parents may want to take a caring approach to the discussion.

Stocks, insurance policies may raise asset division questions

The decision to end a marital relationship can prove difficult for many Utah residents. The issues that lead to this choice may differ from person to person, and though it was a hard decision to make, many more choices will need to be made during the course of the divorce proceedings. In particular, individuals may have concerns when it comes to asset division.

Recognizing importance of finances may help during divorce

One of the biggest upsets that individuals can face after ending their marriages relates to their finances. The divorce process itself can prove costly in many cases, and the outcomes of property division and other proceedings can also impact how a person may need to address his or her finances. Luckily, Utah residents can take steps to protect themselves during the legal proceedings.

Mediation may help Utah residents with child custody decisions

Ending a marriage can have a substantial impact on everyone involved. Certainly the divorcing couple often bears the brunt of the majority of changes, but any children the couple may have had can also be considerably affected. Because of this impact, Utah parents may want to consider how they can best approach child custody arrangements and other aspects of the divorce process.

Tax legislation could have impacts on Utah alimony awards

Many individual know that spousal support is often an outcome of divorce settlements. In instances where one spouse may have earned more money than the other, the higher-earning spouse often has to make alimony payments. These payments can help lower-earning individuals maintain their lifestyles and meet other financial goals, and recent legislation regarding taxation on this support may interest Utah residents.

Parenting plan may play important role in child custody decisions

As divorcing Utah residents move through each stage of their legal proceedings, they may feel a sense of relief that they are one step closer to finalizing the process. However, some areas may be more difficult to work through than others, and when it comes time to make child custody decisions, parents may feel particularly on edge. Though they certainly want to do what is best for their children, they likely also want to ensure that they still have the ability to see their kids often.

Should divorce have Utah residents concerned with retirement?

Many Utah residents likely look forward to the time in their lives when they are able to retire from their chosen profession. These individuals have probably been saving for retirement for some time and hope that those funds will allow them to live comfortably after they stop working. However, if parties go through divorce, their retirement savings could face substantial impacts.

Professional divorce advice may outweigh that of family, friends

Though most Utah residents likely know someone who has ended his or her marriage, going through the process oneself is often different. Some people who have been in similar situations may attempt to give divorce advice, but parties may want to remember that each case has its own unique factors. Therefore, what may have worked for one former couple may not apply to another.

Written records may prove useful in high-conflict Utah divorce

When dealing with the difficulties of ending a marriage, it may seem like there are few options for getting through the process quickly and amicably. This feeling may be even more prevalent for individuals who are dealing with a spouse with a high-conflict personality. These parties often want to make the divorce process or any other situation more difficult, but there are ways that could help move proceedings along.
