Does an expensive engagement ring signal divorce?

When individuals find the person they believe will be the love of their life, they often want to shout it to the world. As a result, many Utah residents may end up having lavish weddings as a way to show their love. However, the results of a recent study that looked at wedding costs and divorce rates may be of interest.

Lack of child support payments can lead to legal consequences

Having financial difficulties does not make a person a bad parent. However, not having a stable financial situation can make it hard for individuals to provide for their children and themselves. When a parent owes child support, he or she may think it best to simply not pay in order to stay afloat. Before taking this route, it may be important for Utah parents to remember that failing to make support payments can have legal consequences.

Deciding alimony terms sooner rather than later may be beneficial

The financial impacts of divorce are often the ones most dreaded by individuals in Utah and elsewhere going through the process. When a person has relied solely on the income of his or her spouse or makes less than a spouse, it is possible that alimony could be awarded as part of the divorce order. However, due to tax changes that will take place next year that leave the paying party on the hook for applicable taxes, even more contention could arise surrounding spousal support.

Legal divorce or separation instrument needed to divide IRAs

Ending a marriage often means splitting the assets. Some property may be easier to divide than others, and when it comes to addressing retirement accounts, more steps may be necessary in order to avoid possible taxes and fees.

While some people may feel willing to shell out the needed funds in order to get out of an unhappy relationship, remaining level-headed and thinking through their actions could prove wise. Fortunately, there are many ways in which Utah residents could remain conscious of their finances while going through divorce.

Parental alienation may lead to child custody reconsiderations

Some individuals may feel disheartened when another parent obtains primary custody of their kids. Child custody proceedings can often be difficult, and Utah parents may find themselves having to make do with the terms of the agreements. However, the situation could be made worse if a parent attempts to alienate the other parent.

Disabled parents may still need to make child support payments

After unexpectedly finding themselves disabled, it is common for many concerns to cross individuals' minds. For Utah parents who owe child support, the ability to continuing meeting the obligation may be a point of considerable worry. After all, if they are unable to work or otherwise generate the same amount of income, they may struggle to make the necessary payments.

Is bird nesting worth considering after divorce?

Ending a marriage is difficult. When that marriage also involved children, the situation becomes even more complicated. Not only do Utah residents need to consider the immediate impacts their decisions could have, but when it comes to child custody, the long-term effects made during divorce also need significant attention.

Introverts likely do not want to go through divorce alone

Utah residents deal with stress in various ways. Depending on the particular personality, there are many actions and behaviors that could manifest when an individual feels overwhelmed. For introverted people, they may find themselves either internalizing their stress and forgetting to speak out, or they may end up on constant rants. If either of these events take place, parties may feel that going through divorce will be a disaster.

Do all divorce cases have to be drawn out and expensive?

Most Utah readers know that ending a marriage can be a time-consuming and costly process. Between property division, legal fees and other expenses, individuals could face monetary difficulties while they attempt to finalize their divorce cases. Fortunately, there are steps that individuals could take in hopes of lessening the costs that they may have to contend with as their cases move forward.
