What does the court consider when awarding alimony?

Getting a divorce can turn anyone's life upside down. Because each person is different, each individual has different priorities when it comes to reaching the best terms in a divorce settlement. Of course, most Utah residents likely have concerns over how ending their marriages will affect them financially, and some may put a particular focus on alimony.

Is assuming a mortgage loan wise after asset division?

Many Utah residents grow attached to their houses for various reasons. As a result, it can be difficult to let go of that property during the asset division that occurs as part of a divorce. Depending on who wants to keep the home and other factors, parties may be able to negotiate to reach the outcomes they desire. However, before taking on the home as a single person, an individual will want to make sure he or she can handle the mortgage payments.

Actively participating in divorce can be difficult but necessary

When faced with a difficult ordeal, many people may want to essentially bury their heads until it passes. Of course, this approach may not have the desired effect and could actually make an already trying situation more difficult. This may prove true for Utah residents who are currently facing divorce.

Taking care of oneself important during divorce

Ending a marriage can take a considerable toll on any Utah resident. Even if a person feels that divorce is the best choice for the circumstances, the process can still be difficult and stressful. As a result, many people need help getting through the proceedings as best as they can.

Most Utah residents want to lessen stress during divorce

Ending a marriage is a major life change. Unfortunately, this particular change can bring with it stress and tension, especially if the divorce does not go amicably. However, Utah residents can help themselves make it through their cases with less stress and, hopefully, reach agreeable outcomes.

Divorce matters to consider when over 50

As the notion goes, with age comes wisdom. For some Utah residents, that wisdom may mean that they now know that their marriages are no longer allowing them to live the lives they had hoped. Many individuals over the age of 50 are choosing to end their marriages, and it is important to understand various divorce matters that will likely come up.

Having the right records can help with asset division

Most Utah residents do not know the ins and outs of family law. As a result, they may not fully know what to expect when they go through divorces. Fortunately, they can help themselves by gaining information on the proceedings ahead and on how to avoid mistakes during important parts of the process, like asset division.

Changes in affection, communication issues may point to divorce

Many people believe that getting married will the happiest time in their lives. Certainly, this day can bring about much joy for many Utah residents, but some couples may have a hard time keeping that joyous feeling alive over the years. Unfortunately, many details of a relationship could potentially point to possible divorce.

Seeking revenge during divorce may only cause complications

When Utah residents decide to end their marriages, they may have many ideas about what the upcoming court proceedings will hold. It is certainly important to have goals when it comes to divorce outcomes, but it is also important to make sure that those goals are reasonable. If parties try to pursue unrealistic outcomes or have ulterior motives, cases can quickly become complicated.

Divorce becomes more complicated with false claims of abuse

Ending a marriage is complicated. Even if Utah residents want to divorce amicably, they can still face setbacks. When the situation is contentious and involves false accusations, the legal proceedings can become even more complicated. Often, parents who want sole custody of their children or who simply want to seek revenge on the other party may carry out unseemly actions in efforts to reach their desired outcomes.

  • 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...
