The court needs to make a determination about your current ability to care for your daughter. The important factors include whether you can take care of her. Do you have a stable home for her? Do you have a close bond with her? Your condition at the time of the stroke may not be relevant to that determination. It could just explain why you are now using a walker. You can expect a court to be very careful to treat you fairly since a parties physical disabilities are not a basis under Utah law to deny you custody. You should ask an attorney to represent you and ask for attorneys fees for your case. If you have questions about what to put in your custody order click on my blog “Custody Order” below.
