My definition of a successful divorce is one in which the parties are still somewhat civil with each other when its all said and done, and the children, if there are any, have a strong relationship with both parents. As explained in a previous blog, studies have shown that kids are MUCH better off if both parents are heavily involved in their lives. So what can you do to ensure a successful divorce? Well, as usual, there are no guarantees, but here are a few things I've seen that will certainly improve your chances.
What are your options?
Talk to your Spouse
Get an Attorney
There is no doubt that a Utah divorce attorney is going to cost you, but in the end it is money well spent. And if you and your spouse both hire an experienced divorce attorney, chances are you’ll both come out ahead in the end. Its an investment, but well worth it.
Do your research, look at various attorneys, go to their webpages, make sure the content reflects the attorney's knowledge on the subject. I recommend www.pearsonlawfirm.org, it has a lot of great information for people looking into divorce. But no matter where you end up, make sure you are comfortable with your attorney and that he is compassionate but able to knowledgeably guide you through the divorce landscape.
In the end, the more civil everyone is the more peaceful the divorce will be, which usually results in peace post-divorce, which is a benefit to everyone, especially any children.
Obviously there is a lot that goes into a divorce, and it is impossible to plan for every potential situation, but if you can do your best to prepare and approach the situation logically, you’ll be much better off in the end.
