Usually the hardest part of a Utah divorce is the affect the divorce has on your children. There is an ongoing debate as to whether it is better for the kids for the parents to just stick it out, or whether the children are better off if their parents just get a divorce. In my personal experience, it seems that most of the people I represent in divorce cases have minor children. Although I have had more than a few clients wait until their children leave the home before they go through with the divorce.
Again, the theories vary depending on who you ask, but I think whether or not the divorce is appropriate really depends on the specific situation. In my non-clinical experience, kids are better off if their parents get along, Whether they separate and get along or stay together and get along, the kids are better off. In other words, if the options are stay together and fight all the time, or separate and play nice, separation might be better. But if you are able to stay together and be civil, and even kind to each other, that is probably the better situation. But for the purposes of this blog, we're going to assume that the parties have divorced/separated.
