Seeking revenge during divorce may only cause complications

When Utah residents decide to end their marriages, they may have many ideas about what the upcoming court proceedings will hold. It is certainly important to have goals when it comes to divorce outcomes, but it is also important to make sure that those goals are reasonable. If parties try to pursue unrealistic outcomes or have ulterior motives, cases can quickly become complicated.

Divorce becomes more complicated with false claims of abuse

Ending a marriage is complicated. Even if Utah residents want to divorce amicably, they can still face setbacks. When the situation is contentious and involves false accusations, the legal proceedings can become even more complicated. Often, parents who want sole custody of their children or who simply want to seek revenge on the other party may carry out unseemly actions in efforts to reach their desired outcomes.

New year, new alimony tax laws

Laws are often under scrutiny, and even laws that have been in place for decades could suddenly see changes. Now that it is 2019, changes made to tax law regarding alimony are now in effect. Some people believe that the changes may make divorce more difficult for individuals in Utah and elsewhere.

Some Utah parents may need a child support modification

Though Utah parents want to support their children as best as they can, they do not always have the financial means to meet certain obligations. Of course, if parents divorce, one parent commonly has the obligation of paying child support. Still, situations can arise in which the paying parent may not have the ability to meet the terms of the court order, and seeking a modification may be necessary.

Going through divorce does not mean feeling alone during holidays

Getting divorced around the holidays can make an already emotional situation even more so. Some Utah residents may think that their holidays will be ruined due to going through divorce, but that does not necessarily have to be the case. In fact, individuals can take steps to help themselves have a positive holiday season.

Divorce during the holidays does not have to lead to loneliness

Holidays are often a time of family gatherings and feelings of joy for many people in Utah and across the country. Of course, if individuals have recently gone through or are going through divorce, they may feel less than joyous around the holidays. After all, they may have less family to see or feel left out during activities for couples.

Parents may consider birdnesting as part of child custody

Most Utah parents going through a divorce want to make sure that their kids do not suffer unnecessarily from the process. Child custody agreements can sometimes cause contention, but if parents can work together, they may be able to take advantage of arrangements that can help the kids through the transitioning phase. In particular, parents may want to look into birdnesting.

Considering retirement security during divorce

Ending a marriage may be the best choice for many people facing unhealthy and unhappy relationships. However, it is no secret that divorce can wreak havoc on finances and future financial plans. In particular, Utah residents' retirement plans could face significant changes due to the impacts of marriage dissolution.

Divorce cases involving narcissists are often contentious

Ending a marriage is an event that many Utah residents likely want to avoid. Unfortunately, divorce is a reality for numerous people. In some cases, the proceedings can be more contentious than others. When a narcissist is involved, there is a substantial likelihood that the case will be high conflict.

Certain personality traits may increase chances of divorce

Everyone has certain characteristics and personality traits that do not please others. In many cases, individuals in Utah and elsewhere can overlook certain traits or work together to overcome issues caused by some characteristics. However, it is not unusual for some traits to act as red flags for relationships and potentially result in a marriage heading for divorce.
