Knowledge dealing with property division could help Utah couples

Many Utah residents go into a marriage thinking they will be with their spouse for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately for many couples, however, their happy years are too soon turning into ones of incompatibility and arguments. Entertaining the idea of divorce can be a frightening prospect as couples often build their lives around each other, and divorce means branching out as individuals and going through property division.

When is DNA testing appropriate in child support cases?

When Utah parents end their relationship, the result is often a form of child custody in which one party serves as the primary caregiver while the other pays for part of the care of the child or children. This financial help comes in the form of child support, which is usually determined by the income of both parents. Child support determinations are also sometimes handed down by the courts in cases in which parents cannot come to an agreement concerning the matter on their own.

Knowledge is key during property division in Utah divorce cases

When a marriage ends, there are a variety of issues to be resolved in order to legally separate the lives of the two spouses which had been legally joined together. One of the most important aspects of a divorce in Utah is deciding on property division issues. However, this particular aspect of divorce is one of the most commonly misunderstood, which causes many people to make mistakes based upon false assumptions about the law.

Questions on property division keep many from filing for divorce

For Utah spouses who are involved in a marriage that is simply not working, a number of factors may lead to a delay in filing for divorce. In many cases, fear and uncertainty about the divorce process is behind the reluctance to file. It is normal for spouses to have questions and concerns about the property division process and other aspects of a divorce, but allowing these uncertainties to delay moving forward is not likely to yield any form of positive change.
