Child support can be a double-edged sword for paying parents

After Utah parents get divorced, it is common for there to be a change in financial responsibilities. In many cases, one parent will have to pay child support to the other in order to meet the needs of the children. Though a court order typically details the terms of this arrangement, conflict can still arise over this type of support.

Looking into the future is good for divorce prep

When a marriage is no longer working, many people in Utah and across the country choose to end the relationship. It can sometimes be a struggle to make this decision, and going through the divorce process is typically not a walk in the park either. However, with planning, individuals may give themselves a better chance of getting through the process quickly.

Thinking about divorce? Research can help with decision-making

Making any major decision deserves proper time and consideration. Utah residents who are thinking about filing for divorce certainly want to make sure it is the right decision for their circumstances. Before making any hasty choices, they may want to do their research.

Child support may still be necessary with joint custody

When Utah parents divorce, they may think long and hard about the custody arrangements they hope to have. In many cases, parents believe that joint custody is right for them and their children, and some may believe that child support is not necessary for such an arrangement. However, that is not always the case.

Divorce during retirement means focusing on finances

Ending a marriage at any age can come with significant complications. However, Utah residents who choose to divorce during their retirement years may have more significant financial repercussions to consider. Because they are not actively generating an income in most cases, it is important that individuals learn what financial changes they may face.

Paperwork plays an important part during divorce cases

Though many Utah residents hope to live long and happy lives with their spouses, the happiness part may be hard to come by. Rather than having smooth sailing in the marriage, many issues could arise that leave individuals thinking about divorce. If a relationship does come to an end, it is important to keep up with the paperwork.

Patience and letting go could be helpful during divorce

Though many Utah residents may understand the importance of maintaining their physical health, they may not always think as much about their mental health. However, mental health is just as important as physical health, and it may need some extra attention when individuals are going through a difficult time in life. In particular, focusing on feeling mentally strong while going through a divorce is wise.

Balancing work and personal life during divorce

Ending a marriage is almost like having another full-time job. As a result, many Utah residents may wonder how they will handle the necessary tasks related to their divorce cases and those related to their office work. Though it may seem overwhelming at times, it can -- and likely must -- be done.

Child custody: Supporting children after divorce

Ending a marriage can come as a shock to many people. One spouse may not have seen it coming, or both spouses may be surprised that their relationship reached this point. It is also not unusual for any children the couple have to feel shocked and dismayed to learn that their parents are getting divorced, which can often prompt worry in Utah parents, especially in regard to child custody.

Compensation details that could affect divorce

Ending a marriage is a serious endeavor, and various factors can play into the outcomes of the legal process. In particular, the type of income and other compensation that a person generates through his or her employment could have an impact on the property division aspects of divorce. Therefore, it is important that Utah residents assess their compensation structure.

  • 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...
