Relieving stress can help individuals cope with divorce

The ways in which people deal with certain matters in life are different for everyone. Even if Utah residents are going through similar ordeals, such as divorce, the emotional impacts and other effects of the process are not the same for everyone. As a result, it can be difficult for some people to find ways to cope with such a significant change.

The right information is vital during divorce preparations

When a major life change takes place, it can be difficult to know the best way to handle it. For example, Utah residents going through divorce may not know how to prepare for the impacts the change could have. Fortunately, there are many preparation options that interested parties could take advantage of.

Is living together during divorce possible?

When relationships go downhill, it can be difficult for married couples to be around each other. However, even after making the decision to divorce, some individuals may still have to share a home until other arrangements can be made. This can seem stressful, so Utah residents facing this type of scenario may want to consider their options for making the best of an awkward ordeal.

Is child custody easier when only one parent makes decisions?

When parents divorce, the issue of custody can play a major part in the process. Some Utah parents may think that seeking sole physical custody would be best for their child custody arrangements, and in many cases with this outcome, both parents often maintain legal custody, meaning they can both make decisions for the children. However, it is possible for some parents to want sole legal custody.

It is not easy to know how long divorce will take

When ending a marriage, having more than a little patience is often required. After all, the legal process associated with divorce can have many hoops to jump through, and Utah residents going through these proceedings often have to wait on paperwork to be processed and other details that are outside of their control. Still, individuals may wonder how long their cases will take.

Divorce can be frustrating but focus can help

Ending a marriage is often one of the biggest decisions a person makes in life. It is not unusual for individuals to be married for decades before having to decide whether disentangling their lives from their spouse is worth their future happiness. Many people in Utah and across the country do decide that divorce is worth it, but of course, the process can be difficult.

Personal considerations play a role in gray divorce

Every relationship is different and so is every person. Each Utah resident has a different mindset when it comes to marriage and ending a marriage and how to approach either. Some people may try to work through their marital problems as best as possible, and others may understand when its time to move on. In either case, older individuals could end up going through a gray divorce.

Women are more likely to file for divorce

Gender inequality has been an issue that people, namely women, have dealt with in various aspects of their lives. From work to home life, many women in Utah and across the country may feel imbalances that leave them less than satisfied with their lives. When this dissatisfaction arises in marriages, it may be women initiating divorce proceedings.

Asset division can be a tedious part of divorce

Ending a marriage is a complicated endeavor. Individuals who have lived together for years have likely accumulated various property that will need to be divided during asset division proceedings. Utah residents may find the idea of divvying up property tedious, and it certainly can be.

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.

  • 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...
