What to do with a house when you divorce

For many couples facing divorce, one of the most difficult issues to settle is who gets to keep the house - or whether to keep the house at all. In Utah, couples divide marital property under the equitable standard, which means that a court must consider a divorce settlement "fair" even if it is not equal.

Does a divorce require a financial advisor?

So, you've decided to get a divorce. While the biggest decision has been made, to legally separate from your spouse, it will likely not be the most painful or complicated as you work through the process. You know that you will have to talk about custody, alimony, and splitting up your property. But what about your other assets that have been collected over time? And how about the ones you may not entirely understand, such as stocks, retirement plans and life insurance policies?

What is a parental agreement?

In this day and age it's commonplace for couples who divorce to share custody of the children. One parent may be the custodial parent who handles more of the day to day parenting in the original family home, but it's not uncommon for the non-custodial to take them on weekends or pick them up from Wednesday evening soccer practice and feed them dinner.
