Scheduling and family details can affect child custody terms

Most Utah parents want to avoid putting their children through unnecessarily difficult situations. Unfortunately, not all such events can be avoided, and for many parents, going through divorce is something they may view as a necessary evil, especially when thinking about their kids. Many marital relationships do not work out, but parents can try to continue parenting together through their child custody plans.

Summer months may have some couples preparing for divorce

Many Utah residents look forward to the summer months. They may enjoy having their kids out of school and taking family vacations, but these months may not always be sunshine and fun for some married couples. In fact, spending considerable amounts of time together could draw more attention to issues with the relationship, and as a result, some parties may find themselves more seriously considering divorce.

Be mindful of actions during divorce

Ending a marriage affects each person differently. Some people may feel as if this is a step in the right direction while others may feel blindsided by the situation and wonder how it came to be. Still, divorce is sometimes unavoidable, and as Utah residents' cases proceed, it is wise to be prepared.

Child support on the minds of many parents during divorce

Divorce results in many life changes, and it can be a considerable upheaval to both personal and financial affairs. Due to the changes in household income, it is often necessary for custodial parents to receive child support to help meet the needs of their children. Of course, this can be a difficult point to come to during legal proceedings.

Be wary of divorce advice from nonprofessionals

Ending a marriage is different for everyone. Still, most people have opinions on divorce that they believe will help others going through this process. However, taking the wrong advice during the marriage dissolution process could cause considerable problems, so it is wise for Utah residents to consider their sources of information and ensure that the insight they gain applies to their cases.

Firm but empathetic approach to the topic of divorce

It is common for married Utah residents and those elsewhere to feel as if their relationships are no longer fulfilling. As a result, they may think long and hard about whether the time has come to file for divorce. Of course, the manner in which the topic is brought about with a spouse could set the tone for the marriage dissolution proceedings, so handling the situation in a sensitive manner may be advisable.

Financial information is vital during divorce

Ending a marriage can cause upheaval in many ways. Specifically, it is important for Utah residents and others to fully understand how divorce could affect their financial situations. As a result, much of the preparation that goes into beginning the marriage dissolution process may revolve around understanding personal finances.

Set aside time for divorce matters and work matters

There are many times when Utah residents may wish they could put parts of their lives on hold. This may feel especially true when individuals are going through divorce. Unfortunately, most aspects of life generally carry on during this time, which means that many people may have to deal with family law issues along with their business duties.

How Utah spouses can keep divorce stress to a minimum

When a married couple in Utah determines that their relationship is no longer viable, they must make a decision regarding how best to resolve the problem. Many spouses choose to divorce. It is definitely not a decision to make lightly, especially when children are involved.

Asset division can be complicated with a stay-at-home parent

As most people know, having children can change a person's life in many ways. Some Utah parents may choose to leave their jobs indefinitely in order to care for the children while the other parent earns the household income. This type of arrangement may work out well for numerous families, but it may cause some complications when it comes time for asset division during divorce.

  • 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".
