Infidelity can affect the outcome of a Utah divorce

Many people would consider one of the biggest betrayals in any marriage to be infidelity. Adultery often destroys not only the marriage, but the family as well, and one party often files for divorce. Most divorces in Utah are considered to be due to irreconcilable differences, but the fact that one spouse broke the couple's wedding vows can still affect the outcome of the proceedings.

Making a Utah divorce less contentious

When couples in Utah decide to end their marriages, emotions are often running high. This can create a perfect storm for the divorce to end up in a contentious court battle. However, there are things that couples can do to avoid this time-consuming and expensive option.

Divorce affects children as much as it does Utah couples

Ask anyone in Utah who has been there, and he or she will tell you that divorce is not easy. Anger, hurt, worry and resentment are just a few of the emotions that divorce can cause -- and that is just from the children. If a Utah couple is to the point where they realize the marriage is over, then everyone in the family is already unhappy.

Dealing with financial intimidation in a Utah divorce

Without a doubt, emotions tend to run high in a divorce. One spouse may even begin to try to intimidate the other when it comes to finances. Threats that one spouse will be left with nothing and will be homeless after the divorce may be used to instill fear of the divorce process.

More Utah divorce cases may be caused by cheating wives

While there are many reasons for couples to seek a divorce, infidelity is one that often results in strong emotions and acrimonious proceedings. Traditionally, men have always been more likely to pursue extramarital affairs, but women are now beginning to gain on men when it comes to cheating. This is because women in Utah and across the country are more financially independent and less concerned about the financial consequences of divorce if they are caught cheating.

Child custody can be tough post divorce but violence isn't answer

Parents in Ogden who are divorced know that child custody disputes can cause great emotional pain for everyone involved. Though many divorced parents successfully co-parent their children, in other cases the parents cannot agree on custody, visitation, child support and other issues. Even after the family law court has ruled on these questions, divorced people sometimes struggle to abide by the order. Emotions often boil over. Sometimes, unfortunately, violence enters the picture.

  • 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...
