Child Custody and the Positive Utah Divorce

Parents in Utah and across the country face a unique set of challenges when they make the decision to end their romantic ties. However, being a parent means that there are certain issues of child custody that must be addressed in order for each parent to be able to have a better idea of what their future will hold following the conclusion of their divorce proceedings. Transitioning from being a couple to divorced parents can be made easier by taking some things into consideration.

The unfortunate part of some divorces is the tension and negativity that can arise. For those with children, the tension can be due to perceived or legitimate concerns over the welfare of their children. One of the things that a recent report stresses is that parents should remember that the welfare of the children is of the utmost importance. This means that children should have limited exposure to a process that can sometimes be emotionally charged. In other words, parents should manage their feelings toward the divorce and the other parents, and keep adult issues away from the children entirely.

The report states that by approaching divorce in a positive way, the children have the chance to view both parents in an equally positive light. Children should not be subjected to various concerns that parents face in a divorce; such as potential fights over money or materialistic items, child support or feelings of anger and grief toward the other parent. Children, as the article states, should not be used as a confidant for adult issues, and parents who may need support should seek assistance outside of the household in order to avoid potentially involving their children.

It is possible to navigate a divorce without either side feeling like they lost by implementing the above tips in an effort to approach the process in a positive way. Divorce is understandably not always an easy situation to work through. However, Utah parents can navigate a potentially painful event in their lives and ensure that their needs as parents and the ultimate needs of their children are met as they make their way through the child custody process.

Overall from start to finish the best experience to have dealing with a time that is difficult.Andrew Christensen is very professional and out going to make this situation the best it could be and worked hard to make sure the divorce was fair for me.Over all, this firm really cares and treats you as a family or friend and just not a client, down to Marco Brown taking time to see how I was doing and offer to help in any way possible during my divorce while I was there for my first initial meeting.I would highly recommend anyone that has to go through a divorce to really reach out to the Brown Family Law firm and see for your self the experience I was able to receive from a top notch law firm.
Response from the owner: Devin, thank you for the kind words. Andrew appreciated the opportunity to help you with your situation.
Sophie was very helpful and explains the process and fees. Thank you!
Response from the owner: Corey, thank you for the kind words. Glad we could help.
My attorney Amy Pomeroy and assistant Melanie and Dani are awesome! It’s an easy case but due to the opposite party was failed to respond, the process went much longer than we expect. During the process Amy gets the necessary job done as quick as she can. The assistants made the most documentation jobs done in a reasonable time. I will get phone call or message to communicate for the status, what’s the next step, what should I expect. In the end, it’s a huge win. So I definitely recommend Brown Family Law. They are professional and handle the case very well.
Response from the owner: Yue, thank you for the kind words. Glad Amy was able to help you so well.
Dani always kept me updated and has great communication skills.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Sofia.
Dani was extremely helpful and always responsive.

My experience with Brown Family Law is a positive one. I highly recommend them. This firm has very good communication with their clients. Attorney Paul Waldron represents me and I’m very happy with the experience. My questions and concerns are always answered quickly and respectfully. I’m grateful to have Mr. Waldron and Brown Family Law in my corner during this difficult time for my family.
Response from the owner: Jodie, glad we were able to communicate with you so effectively and quickly. Thank you for your kind words.
I recently used Clay in a divorce case and could not have been happier. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel like I was his only client. The process was easy and he was always there to reassure me or help me with decisions. I would highly recommend Brown Family Law.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Mendi.
Dani excelled as a paralegal, providing crucial support with exceptional skills!

I highly recommend Nathaniel and his team. They listened to me, navigated me, educated me, and always called when they said they would. Going through a divorce was very hard but they helped me get through it and showed compassion the whole time.
