Divorcing someone who is in love with their reflection, part I

Most of us in Ogden have heard the term "narcissism," but what exactly does it mean to be a narcissist? More than being merely vain or somewhat arrogant, narcissism is a personality disorder that makes a person completely self-centered and incapable of feeling empathy for anyone else -- including spouses. As you might imagine, getting a divorce from a narcissist is frequently a difficult task.

Utah court sides with birth father in child custody case

The judge in a bizarre and emotional child custody case has ruled that a 1-year-old girl who was adopted by a Utah couple must be returned to her birth father. The judge found that the girl's birth mother gave her up for adoption without her husband's knowledge or consent, violating his parental rights and invalidating the adoption.

Collaborative divorce can create positive long-term results

In many cases where a divorce in Utah turns contentious, there are no winners. One former spouse may get child custody or a larger share of the martial property, but the emotional scars left by harsh words and bitter accusations can last for years. In short, the psychological impact of a difficult divorce is often not worth it for many couples.

Child support can get confusing after relocation

When parents divorce in Ogden and the court orders one parent to pay child support, the process arranging the payments is generally fairly straightforward. But over time, the custodial parent may decide to take the children and move out of Utah with either the other parent's consent or the court's permission. This could also happen with unmarried parents. As time goes on and multiple state child support agencies get involved, the chances of errors in child support collection go up.

How far would you go to save your ex's life?

For many couples, divorce means the end of any kind of relationship between the spouses. But many people in Utah know that divorce is not always such a clean break. Some former couples remain friends after breaking up. And of course, when children are involved the exes must work together if they want to be successful co-parents.

Utah lawmaker wants to end alimony for cheating spouses

If some Utah state representatives get their way, it may become much more difficult for a divorcing spouse to be awarded alimony in court if he or she had an affair during the marriage. They have proposed a bill that would allow judges to decide whether infidelity was to blame for causing the divorce when considering an alimony request. Besides restricting spousal support, this bill could have implications about Utah's no-fault divorce status if passed.

In a Divorce, Some Assets Are More Complicated to Divide than Others

With emotions running high, deciding who gets to keep what can be one of the most stressful parts of the divorce process. When spouses have particular attachments to certain items or the assets are of high value, coming to agreements regarding the separation can be challenging.

How to Handle Insurance Issues After a Divorce

When a spouse files for divorce, there are myriad issues both parties must consider throughout the process. Not surprisingly, it can be difficult for a divorcing spouse to ensure all of his or her bases are covered. In such situations, an experienced divorce attorney will be able to guide the party through the difficult transition.

Postnuptial Agreements Gaining Popularity

Prenuptial agreements have been well known and commonly used for some time. These days, postnuptial agreements are a growing, new trend in marital contracts. These legally binding documents are distinguishable from prenuptial agreements, as they are signed after a couple is married.

  • 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...
