  • Steve handled my divorce . He did a great job listening and fighting for what was important to me. Getting divorced was never what I wanted, but when it became inevitable Steve walked me though the confusing process step by step.

He has an incredible knowledge of the law and takes a personal interest in his cases. He is always up to date on my case and provides excellent legal direction that moves the case forward with the big picture in mind in the most cost effective manner. Thanks to Steve and his great staff!!

  • We hired Steve to handle a custody case for our family 2 years ago. Steve REALLY knows his stuff. There were times when we were unsure of our rights and Steve made sure to inform us of everything we needed to know so that we would rest easy and feel secure. Steve is so kind and honest and we would hire him again in a second. I've never felt more protected than I did when he was handling our very intense and difficult case. He really is the best.

child custodyUtah Child 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 divorce lawyers are experts in their field and know how to advise you as you seek the best situation for your children.
