Divorce mediation may not work for all couples

A lot of attention has been given to alternative methods of resolving couples' divorce issues. One of these methods is divorce mediation. However, as many Utah couples may already know, the use of a mediator may not work in all cases.

Property division and preparing for the future after a divorce

A lot of attention has been given to the fact that the number of older divorcing couples around the country, and in Utah, has doubled. With this information comes a focus on the difficulties of property division for a couple that has spent decades together. However, older couples are not the only ones who experience challenges when it comes to dividing marital assets.

Mother flees with child despite joint custody agreement

Utah parents may have recently heard about a mother that was arrested for fleeing the state where she lived with her daughter and is now facing felony charges. The charge of parental interference is for withholding visitation from the daughter's dying father in violation of their joint custody agreement. A bond of $10,000 was imposed on the mother to ensure extradition back to the father's home state because of the possibility that she may be a flight risk. Contact with her daughter has been denied.

Long-term separations may impact the division of marital assets

Many Utah couples already know that marriages aren't built overnight. Unfortunately, neither are divorces. It may take months or even years to settle on details such as the division of marital assets and financial responsibilities. Without a well thought out plan and a formal legal agreement, the divorce could potentially drag out for years.

With divorce mediation, Utah divorce doesn't have to be messy

There may still be people in Utah who buy into the Hollywood version of divorce where things get messy and the parties are always fighting. In reality, it doesn't have to be that way. Divorce mediation provides couples with an alternative to the adversarial process.
