Is out-of-state court decision relevant to Utah divorce cases?

Despite the wide range of issues that have been litigated before in state supreme courts, there are still a wide range of issues that have not been addressed. When such an issue arises in a Utah divorce, it may be useful to look at other nearby states, to see if justices have ruled on an issue similar to the one that is currently being litigated. When a favorable decision can be found, this may allow an argument to be made that a Utah judge should take into consideration what their colleagues in other states have already ruled on.

Facebook is cause of trouble in some divorce cases

We have previously discussed how social media sites like Facebook have changed how divorce happens in Utah. These days, it is not uncommon for someone going through divorce to keep tabs on his or her spouse's online activity for evidence that he or she is hiding assets or is an unfit parent. Courts take online pictures and videos seriously and their content may affect the divorce decree.

Disgraced ex-UHP trooper apologizes for false DUI arrests

The former Utah Highway Patrol trooper who was fired after the public learned that many people she arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving were not intoxicated said she is taking responsibility for some "mistakes," to borrow the term used in the Salt Lake Tribune. However, the ex-trooper wants to return to the force and continue to testify in criminal trials, despite several judges questioning her credibility in the wake of an internal report written by UHP in 2010.

Child custody can be tough post divorce but violence isn't answer

Parents in Ogden who are divorced know that child custody disputes can cause great emotional pain for everyone involved. Though many divorced parents successfully co-parent their children, in other cases the parents cannot agree on custody, visitation, child support and other issues. Even after the family law court has ruled on these questions, divorced people sometimes struggle to abide by the order. Emotions often boil over. Sometimes, unfortunately, violence enters the picture.
