Despite their money and fame, many celebrities deal with the same issues as Utah parents when it comes to their children and the end of their marriages. On the other hand, they also have issues that most parents never face. For example, movie star Scarlett Johansson recently filed for divorce from her husband, Romain Dauriac, and where their daughter will live could be the central issue.
You've worked hard for most of your life to get to where you are today. Your successful career is the result of your efforts, and you've earned the comfortable lifestyle you enjoy.
Provo, West Valley City and other Utah regions pretty much follow the rest of the nation when it comes to divorce. Even highly successful business people (like you, perhaps) go through the process. In fact, many currently face various challenges surrounding issues such as child custody and the protection of assets. The latter can be a major obstacle, especially if you suspect your soon-to-be former spouse of criminal behavior.
Being a parent is often a challenging job under the best of circumstances. When a couple decides to divorce, parenting can become even more of a challenge. The first challenge many Utah couples face is how to put their children first through all of the changes that occur during and after the process.
If you have an investment portfolio like many other Utah residents, you more than likely carefully grew it and took calculated risks during your marriage with the intention of it providing benefits to you and your spouse. Now that you are in the process of getting a divorce, dividing those investments could prove more risky than making them. Finding a fair and equitable way to divide these particular assets could be a challenge.
At present, the state of Utah provides no protections for the family pet when it comes to domestic violence or divorce. When it comes to divorce, family pets are considered property, which means that judges make decisions regarding their fate in accordance with asset division laws. However, a new law in the northernmost state of the country that now requires judges to apply rules similar to those for child custody to pets might begin persuading other states to follow suit.
Your marriage is ending, and now you and your spouse begin the task of dividing your property. Most Utah residents believe that asset division is supposed to be an equal split, but that is not always the case. The key is for the division to be equitable and fair, which does not always equate to equal, though it often comes close.
Utah movie fans more than likely already know that the days of "Brangelina" are coming to a close. At first, it looked like the couple was going to end up in a public and contentious divorce that would be fodder for the media for quite some time. However, the couple recently decided to resolve their issues in a more private manner by moving out of the public eye and using a private judge.
The division of property in divorce can have enormous impact on each spouse's future portfolio of assets and therefore, on his or her individual standard of living as the marriage is left behind. For an equitable division of property to take place, an accurate inventory of assets and proper assignment of values are especially important when assets include intellectual property like copyrights, trademarks, patents and trade secrets.
The holidays are over and a new year has begun. For many couples here in Utah and across the nation that means filing for divorce. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, divorce filings increase up to 30 percent in January of every year.
