The benefits of Utah divorce mediation

With the rapid approach of the holiday season, one of the last topics that most Utah couples might want to hear about is divorce. No one in his or her right mind wants to be the person that ruined the holidays, especially when children are involved. The positive aspect is divorce mediation can iron out the wrinkles without the messy courtroom involved until and unless necessary.

Mother claims multimillionaire behind on child support payments

The idea behind child support after a divorce is to have the noncustodial parent pay a portion of the daily expenses of raising a child. As most Utah parents know, the amount of child support is typically determined by the court, based on the earnings of both parents. When a parent fails to meet the financial obligations to his or her children, the custodial parent may go back to the court for relief.

Property division in a Utah divorce: Marital home concerns

It might be safe to say that most Utah couples may already know that getting a divorce can be a challenging experience. Many issues need to be addressed at the beginning of the divorce process, and one of the most painful can be property division. Important in its own right, it is also a telling sign that the end of married life is near.

Factoring Social Security into property division choices

For older Utah residents who are preparing to divorce, the decisions made throughout that process have a different weight than those made by couples in their 20s and 30s. Older spouses simply have less time left within the workforce to make up for serious financial losses, and must make property division choices that reflect their goals for retirement. One important aspect of that process is understanding how Social Security benefits will factor into one's budget.

Missing child support payments hurt more than the children

The amount of child support one parent pays to the other can be determined by either the Utah court system or by means of divorce mediation. In divorce mediation, the parents decide how much is appropriate depending on the income made by each parent and how many children are in the household. As many people are aware, paying child support is not an option; it is a parental responsibility that every parent needs to fulfill to provide for their children as if they were still in the same house.
