Utah residents may find mediation to be a helpful tool

Utah residents facing divorce could find it an emotionally trying time. While there are several avenues available to navigate a divorce, some find mediation helpful. The attitude and overall demeanor of the involved parties may play a part in a successful mediation.

'Pet custody' can become a property division issue

Divorce brings on a number of changes in the lives of both Utah spouses. If a couple shares children, they too will be affected by the process of dissolving a marriage. While the emotional needs of the human participants rightfully reign supreme, pet owners should also consider the effects that a divorce will have on the family pets. In some cases, disputes over who will keep the family pets can create serious property division troubles.

Divorce should not overshadow kids’ summer break

Virtually every adult can remember the excitement they felt as children as summer break approached. Breaking free of long hours in class and a tightly structured schedule was something to look forward to as soon as spring arrived. While Utah kids may spend their summer break far differently than their parents did as kids, the sense of freedom and fun that comes with summer has not changed a bit from one generation to the next. For children whose parents are going through a divorce, much of their summer fun can be dampened by the divorce process and the stress it brings to the family as a whole.

Child custody mistakes to avoid during one's Utah divorce

When it comes to divorce, few matters are as emotionally involved as issues surrounding the care and custody of shared children. Most family law attorneys agree that child custody cases are among the most contentious and highly litigated forms of law. For Utah spouses who are preparing to divorce, there are a number of tactics that can help them navigate child custody matters with fewer complications and less emotional fallout.

Marital assets a first-time issue for Utah women facing divorce?

Many married women may not have paid enough attention to the joint finances until the issue of a divorce comes up. One divorce counselor claims that nine out of every 10 women she works with had not paid adequate attention to their marital assets until a divorce required them to do so. This is not a state of affairs limited to any particular region or income level; Utah women, like women everywhere, should be mindful of what's going on financially even if things are going well in the marriage.
