Legal Separation and Divorce | Utah Lawyers

A divorce is a way to legally terminate the marriage relationship in Utah through the divorce courts. This can be accomplished through an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, either there are no issues to be resolved or all issues have been resolved between the parties through a Separation and Property Settlement Agreement. This can be accomplished through mediation or divorce attorney settlement conferences. In a contested divorce, issues such as custody, child support, visitation, division of marital property, retirement, etc. have not been resolved and the husband and wife must seek the court’s help to resolve these difficult issues. We understand that these issues may be stressful and therefore you need an experienced divorce lawyer to help you through the process and give you legal advice.

As part of a divorce, the property of a marriage must be divided. Because the division of property is never predictable in a divorce action, it is best to have a divorce lawyer attempt to negotiate and settle the property distribution with your spouse’s family law attorney. This will enable you to have more control over the outcome of your divorce case. This will also give you more flexibility to move forward in your life in a quick manner.

 Legal Separation Agreements

A Separation and Property Settlement Agreement allows a divorce client to maintain personal control over the outcome of their divorce case or before their divorce complaint begins. It is a detailed contract which contains an agreement based on the rights and obligations of both the husband and the wife with respect to all issues related to the marital relationship. This may include custody of the children, child support, visitation, division of the marital property, health insurance, debts, retirement, and any other issues that have arisen as a result of the marriage. Through such an agreement, divorce clients meet their objectives in a manner that takes less of an emotional toll on themselves and their families than seeking the court’s help through a divorce case. In addition, out of court settlements are far less expensive than seeking the court’s assistance to resolve the issues.

The divorce lawyers at Arnold & Wadsworth will seek out your best interest. We will help you weigh the pros and cons of each decision or settlement. Our job is to educate you on the laws of divorce in Utah and give you intelligent advice for your divorce situation. Feel free to call today for a free consultation.

Great article discussing the single market and the effects of it on the working female when male joblessness is in the decline. This also gives a good feel for divorced women and men. From the man’s perspective if jobs are declining should child support and alimony decrease also? Just some questions. Leave a comment.

Are women paying the price for taking their husband’s name? | Dollars and Sex | Big Think

Are women paying the price for taking their husband’s name? | Dollars and Sex | Big Think.

This is really interesting. I cannot believe that this is how women are perceived in the work place. It seems that this is unreal. I do not see myself as an employer thinking that a woman is not smart because she took her husband’s last name. I know of women that keep the last name even after a divorce. This does not make sense to me, but it is an interesting read.

Recording Phone Calls – Divorce Lawyer Utah

ARNOLD & WADSWORTH DIVORCE WEBSITE

Can I record phone calls or statements made by my spouse without their knowledge?

YES

Utah Code § 77-23a-4 (Offenses — Criminal and civil — Lawful interception), Subsection (7) (b):

“A person not acting under color of law may intercept a wire, electronic, or oral communication if that person is a party to the communication . . . unless the communication is intercepted for the purpose of committing any criminal or tortious act in violation of state or federal laws.”

Here you are not acting under the color of law because you are not pretending to be a police officer, you are simply being a spouse. These recordings can become important if custody of your children is an issue in your divorce. It also can be an issue if you are trying to catch your ex-spouse cohabiting with another individual. Either way, record the phone call or communication.

When it comes to custody of your children you need all the evidence that you can get in order to prove your side of your case. Recordings can help you present and prove your case to the judge.
