Can there be child support modification in Utah?

For Utah couples who are no longer together but share a child, child support is an unavoidable and necessary issue that must be agreed upon. When the support agreement is completed, many parents might be under the impression that it cannot be changed. However, that is not always the case. It is possible for there to be a child support modification if the requirements for doing so are met. Understanding how this works and what the criteria is to make the change is key.

Important financial considerations during a Utah divorce

Utah residents who are in the midst of a failing marriage and are considering divorce will have a great deal to consider. These considerations go beyond the emotional turmoil and personal changes that are unavoidable at the end of a marriage. Understanding ancillary divorce legal issues and addressing them is a smart decision to protect oneself. This is key whether the proceeding is rife with dispute or the couple is on relatively good terms with an amicable split.

What is separate maintenance to pay alimony in Utah?

Not all marriages that end in Utah do so with a couple deciding to get a formal legal divorce. Along with that, there are certain family legal issues that are applicable to different types of situations. For example, certain cases can allow a spouse to request that alimony, property division, health care, custody, support of children and other factors that would arise at the end of a marriage be ordered without an actual divorce filing. This petition is for separate maintenance.

Family law and dividing marital debts after a divorce

When a Utah couple chooses to end a marriage, there are multiple legal issues that will come to the forefront. One that often recedes into the background but is important in its own right is how debts that were accrued during the marriage will be divided. Even if the other spouse purchased the property, both parties might be viewed as responsible. Not understanding the intricacies of this aspect of the situation can lead to problems. This is true whether it is a high asset divorce or not and whether there is a dispute over property division or not.
