It is not something you thought about before you were married. It is not something anyone likes to think about. Unfortunately, sometimes divorce is necessary. They happen in all kinds of situations for marriages of varying lengths.

What Is At Stake?
Many people do not realize just how much is at stake in a divorce. As a general rule of thumb, the longer the marriage lasted, the more difficult the divorce process will be.
Even in an uncontested divorce, you want to make sure you have legal assistance to ensure that everything has been done appropriately.
When it comes to an uncontested divorce, the process could take longer. In Utah, there needs to be an equitable division of assets. Many married couples have acquired a good amount of property together, from land and houses to vehicles and boats. Sometimes, there are joint accounts.
Even debt acquired during the marriage needs to be divided.
If there are extenuating circumstances such as infidelity or abuse that factored into the decision to divorce, then the court will examine those closely. If you need to get an enforcement order or a restraining order against a spouse or contest one that they have gotten against you, we will help you through the process.
If one spouse is better off economically, they may be required to pay alimony payments to the other spouse in order to help them maintain a lifestyle similar to the one they had during the marriage.
If There Are Children
When there are minor children involved, the divorce process can become much more emotional. There are some very important issues that need to be worked out.
You will need to figure out both legal custody and physical custody. If one parent will have sole physical custody, a visitation schedule needs to be decided on during the divorce proceedings.
If physical abuse or substance abuse factored into the divorce, this will play a part in custody issues.
