Divorce is never an easy process, but it can be less contentious if you and your spouse can put emotions aside and work to reach an agreement. By doing so, you can keep your legal costs down and minimize the pain of a difficult life event.
At Bostwick & Price P.C. in Salt Lake City, Utah, our lawyers guide people through all of the issues that need to be resolved in your divorce, including:
- Marital property division: In Utah, assets and debts accumulated during your marriage are divided according to the law of equitable distribution. While "equitable" doesn't always mean 50-50, that is a good starting point.
- Alimony: Utah courts may provide alimony to you or your spouse, based on factors such as the length of your marriage, the needs of the recipient spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay alimony.
- Child custody and visitation: If you have children, determining how you and your ex will co-parent after your divorce will be the most important issue that we need to resolve.
Most divorces are resolved through negotiation before they ever reach a courtroom because it's almost always better for the two parties in the divorce to reach an agreement rather than to let a judge decide. However, if the other side is unreasonable, our lawyers are willing and able to be aggressive to protect your interests.
