child custodyChild Custody Lawyer

When children are involved, divorce is an even more delicate situation. When you are facing a battle over child custody, it is important to know exactly what the courts are looking at.

Although Utah is a relatively conservative state, in custody battles, courts do not automatically defer to the mother based solely upon the fact the she is the mother—in fact, doing so would be against the law. Instead, the court will take several factors into account before issuing a verdict. These criteria include factors such as each parent’s ability to take care of the child, the type of home they will be able to provide, their ability to transport the child to and from school, and more. Our Salt Lake City divorce attorneys are experts in their field and know how to advise you as you seek the best situation for your children.

Our job is to make sure that you have the funds to make you whole. To achieve this goal, we firmly commit to your case and refuse to back down if a trial becomes necessary. Rather than looking for the fastest settlement and then moving on to the next case, we work to get you the damages to keep you on the road to recovery, such as medical expenses, lost earnings or lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
