Most divorce proceedings begin with one of the spouses explaining to an attorney why they deserve a divorce and why the other spouse is at fault. With all the heartache and the emotion that comes with the decision to get a divorce it is no wonder that these arguments are very emotionally charged and focus on how on person has hurt the feelings of the other. While these issues are clearly very important to the individuals involved in the divorce, the legal processes isn’t as concerned with emotional and “who started it” subject matter. In fact a large number of divorce proceedings end in mediation or earlier and because of that these arguments never actually come into play.
The Benefits of Settlement
In Utah the law requires that parties meet in mediation to try and resolve the issues of a divorce before a hearing will be held with the judge. At Salcido Law Firm we always encourage our clients to find a way to get a resolution before going to the judge because early settlement saves time and money, not to mention the uncertainty that comes with letting a judge decide the terms of your divorce. The important thing to note from all of this is that while you may be hurt emotionally and you may think that the other spouse doesn’t deserve anything because of the pain they’ve caused you, the law doesn’t really care about that, and the sooner you can come to terms with that fact and get to the negotiation table, the sooner you can finish the divorce, the sooner you can move on with your life, and the more money you will save.
