Property division can become complicated for business owners

When a Utah marriage ends in divorce, the process of dividing assets and coming to a final settlement can be a challenge. In marriages in which a business is owned by one or both spouses, these challenges can multiply exponentially. Media coverage of celebrity or other high-asset divorces have demonstrated the extensive, and expensive, litigation that can result when business interests become part of the property division process.

Financial planning during a difficult divorce

Regardless of who one's spouse may be, there still are certain precautions to be taken in the event of a pending divorce. Too often one particular spouse is intimidated into making the wrong choices and loses out when a property settlement is eventually made.

Can courts use the DSM to decide child custody matters?

Many Utah readers are familiar with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, also commonly known as the DSM. The reference has been widely used by mental health professionals to diagnose mental illness across the spectrum of known disorders. First published in 1952, the volume that some consider the 'Bible' of psychiatry is now in its fifth revision, and lists over 300 various disorders. The DSM has made recent headlines not only for its most recent revision, but due to the fact that it has played a role in a recent child custody dispute.
