Marital debt and other property division matters
If you have made the decision to split up with your spouse, there are a plethora of legal issues that you may have to deal with, such as child support or custody and alimony, to name just a few. However, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and across the U.S., property division can be especially emotional and complicated for those who are going through a divorce. At Just Law, our property division attorneys work hard to support clients who are struggling with the division of marital property.
If you are thinking about filing for divorce, it is important to understand how property division laws could affect what you own. Also, it is vital to recognize how marital debt is divided in divorce and be aware of which types of property and debt are not typically divided during divorce (premarital assets, student loans, etc.). Furthermore, you should prepare for the potential financial ramifications of separating from your spouse. For example, some people may experience negative financial consequences after splitting up with their spouse due to diminished household income, while others may be required to pay child support.
Sometimes, speaking to a mediator is a great way for couples to work through property division or any other divorce-related matters they are having difficulty with.
