Avoiding cookie-cutter divorce options may be best

When Utah residents have to go through what they anticipate to be an unpleasant process, they typically want to finish it as quickly and easily as possible. When it comes to divorce, many individuals may understandably want to reach the end as quickly as they can. However, it is important to remain cautious when considering options that seem too good to be true.

Consider coming to divorce terms before going to court

Ending a marriage is not an easy process. Fortunately, Utah residents going through this event can take steps to make their own cases go as smoothly as possible. Often, discussing divorce matters before heading to court and trying to come to agreements on the issues could help with that endeavor.

Job loss can make paying child support difficult

No one wants to find him or herself in the position of unemployment. Unfortunately, many Utah residents have little control over whether they face layoffs at work or otherwise lose their job due to circumstances beyond their control. Of course, many financial obligations do not pause because of unemployment, and that includes child support.

Dividing debt during divorce can be complicated

It is common for people to accumulate some type of debt throughout their lives. Some of that debt may be good, like a mortgage or auto loan, and other debt may not be so favorable, like high credit card debt. No matter the type of debt involved, many Utah residents likely wonder how debt is divided during divorce.

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.

  • 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...
