Bad behaviors can cause issues during child custody proceedings

Getting a divorce can be a time of stress and conflict for some Utah residents. Though many methods can allow individuals to work through the various proceedings in an amicable way, many people do not feel able to follow those methods. In fact, some parties may believe that child custody and other related proceedings are becoming more contentious.

Living arrangements will play a part in child custody outcomes

For many Utah parents, it can be immensely difficult to be away from their children for any length of time, especially when their kids are young. Of course, when parents divorce, it is likely that at least one parent will be spending much less time with the kids than hoped. Because making a good presentation to the court can make a considerable difference in child custody outcomes, parents may want to ensure they have everything in order.

Financial concerns are normal when heading toward divorce

Though many people try to make their marriages work even when they hit hard times, it is not meant for all relationships to work out. As a result, numerous Utah residents may be considering divorce, but they may also worry about how the process will affect their lives. In particular, they may have concerns about the property and the financial impacts of ending a marriage.

Even with court orders, child support is not easy to collect

Ending a marriage is not typically an easy decision to make. Most people in Utah and across the country give the idea a great deal of thought before deciding to move forward with this life-changing process. If children are involved, the decision can be even more difficult, and in some cases, obtaining child support can be as well.

A New Year's resolution to stay healthy could apply to divorce

Being healthier is a common goal that many people in Utah set as a New Year's resolution. While many people think of going on a diet and exercising more as ways to get or remain healthy, it is important to think of mental health as well. It may be particularly important to find ways to remain healthy when going through a divorce.

New year, new relationship status? Divorce common in January

Getting through the holidays can be more difficult for some Utah residents than others. This season can be filled with many emotions, and it is possible for the stress associated with multiple family gatherings and end-of-the-year obligations to bring more negative emotions to the forefront. In fact, it is common for holiday strain to cause couples to consider divorce.

Telling the kids about divorce over dinner

When wanting to end a marriage, many people worry about how they will break the news to their spouse. However, it can be just as difficult to break the news to their children. As a result, it is important for Utah parents who are getting a divorce to approach the topic gently with their children.

Physical activity during divorce can help combat stress, anxiety

Ending a marriage can cause major disruptions to any Utah resident's life. Some people may think that divorce is the best option for their unhappy relationships, and others may feel completely devastated by the turn of events. In either case, it is important to remember that ending a marriage can be a stressful ordeal and that taking care of oneself during this time is important.

Addressing the house is an important part of asset division

Ending a marriage often involves disentangling two lives. This process can mean that individuals will need to go through asset division proceedings in order to separate their marital property before the divorce is finalized. In some cases, Utah residents may have the most concern about what will happen to their house.

Cooperation can go a long way during divorce

It can take a lot of time and thought to decide that ending a marriage is for the best. Some people may come to this realization after yet another fight with a spouse, and others may come to it more gradually as they realize they are simply no longer happy in the relationship. Whatever the case, it is important to remember that divorce can be difficult if not approached in the right way.

  • 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".
