New year, new relationship status? Divorce common in January

Getting through the holidays can be more difficult for some Utah residents than others. This season can be filled with many emotions, and it is possible for the stress associated with multiple family gatherings and end-of-the-year obligations to bring more negative emotions to the forefront. In fact, it is common for holiday strain to cause couples to consider divorce.

Telling the kids about divorce over dinner

When wanting to end a marriage, many people worry about how they will break the news to their spouse. However, it can be just as difficult to break the news to their children. As a result, it is important for Utah parents who are getting a divorce to approach the topic gently with their children.

Physical activity during divorce can help combat stress, anxiety

Ending a marriage can cause major disruptions to any Utah resident's life. Some people may think that divorce is the best option for their unhappy relationships, and others may feel completely devastated by the turn of events. In either case, it is important to remember that ending a marriage can be a stressful ordeal and that taking care of oneself during this time is important.

Addressing the house is an important part of asset division

Ending a marriage often involves disentangling two lives. This process can mean that individuals will need to go through asset division proceedings in order to separate their marital property before the divorce is finalized. In some cases, Utah residents may have the most concern about what will happen to their house.

Cooperation can go a long way during divorce

It can take a lot of time and thought to decide that ending a marriage is for the best. Some people may come to this realization after yet another fight with a spouse, and others may come to it more gradually as they realize they are simply no longer happy in the relationship. Whatever the case, it is important to remember that divorce can be difficult if not approached in the right way.

Child support can be a double-edged sword for paying parents

After Utah parents get divorced, it is common for there to be a change in financial responsibilities. In many cases, one parent will have to pay child support to the other in order to meet the needs of the children. Though a court order typically details the terms of this arrangement, conflict can still arise over this type of support.

Looking into the future is good for divorce prep

When a marriage is no longer working, many people in Utah and across the country choose to end the relationship. It can sometimes be a struggle to make this decision, and going through the divorce process is typically not a walk in the park either. However, with planning, individuals may give themselves a better chance of getting through the process quickly.

Thinking about divorce? Research can help with decision-making

Making any major decision deserves proper time and consideration. Utah residents who are thinking about filing for divorce certainly want to make sure it is the right decision for their circumstances. Before making any hasty choices, they may want to do their research.

Child support may still be necessary with joint custody

When Utah parents divorce, they may think long and hard about the custody arrangements they hope to have. In many cases, parents believe that joint custody is right for them and their children, and some may believe that child support is not necessary for such an arrangement. However, that is not always the case.

Divorce during retirement means focusing on finances

Ending a marriage at any age can come with significant complications. However, Utah residents who choose to divorce during their retirement years may have more significant financial repercussions to consider. Because they are not actively generating an income in most cases, it is important that individuals learn what financial changes they may face.

  • 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...
