Discussing a collaborative divorce with your spouse
If you and your spouse are contemplating divorce, or have already decided to split up, a number of legal issues may be on the table. For example, you may be trying to make decisions and plan ahead on various matters, from child custody and support to the division of marital property. At Just Law, we know how emotionally demanding divorce can be for couples in Salt Lake City, and the entire state of Utah.
If you are on relatively good terms with your spouse and the two of you wish to make divorce easier, the collaborative process may be the way to go. During a collaborative divorce, you may have an easier time handling any post-settlement disputes that arise and exchanging information. Furthermore, this process is also less formal than court and can allow you to save time as well as money.
Sometimes, collaborative divorce simply is not possible and couples need to head to court to work through disputes. In some cases, such as those which involve domestic violence, this option may not on the table. However, even if you and your partner do not see eye to eye on everything, you can still take advantage of the collaborative process to work through any disagreements. If you have kids, it is particularly important to do everything in your ability to make divorce less challenging for them.
