How are marital assets like pets divided in a divorce?

Many Utah married couples may be living what they believe to be the perfect life. They have the perfect job, spouse, great children and loyal pets. Sometimes, though, the dream fades and each starts to talk about divorce. Arguments may start about who will keep the house, who will get custody of the kids and how much child support or alimony will be required. The process of dividing marital assets begins.

A uncontested divorce may be the best thing for children

Many Utah parents attempt to weigh the pros and cons of staying together for the children's sake or going their separate ways. Plenty of studies indicate that divorce can have an adverse effect on children, but not as much attention is paid to those children who grew up walking on eggshells around their parents due to their constant conflict. Considering the alternative, an uncontested divorce may be the best option.

Special needs children and child custody

Utah residents are most likely aware that a divorce can be difficult for anyone to handle. Most people seem to forget that children are also affected in a big way. However, what about the children who require special needs? Children with major health issues, such as autism for example, may be affected more than the average child when it comes to dealing with the emotional turmoil of divorce, let alone child custody.

Utah couples divide marital assets in private, unlike celebrities

When standing in the checkout line at a local grocery store, Utah residents often peruse the headlines of the gossip magazines. Sometimes, they read about the life of their favorite actors and stars in some sort of torment. It does not seem to matter whether the story is about the wedding of the decade or the horrific divorce that has quickly become a fight over marital assets. The life of a celebrity seems to have something that everyone wants to know about.
