Utah man is facing charges for DUI after single-vehicle accident

When a Utah resident is involved in a single-car accident, one of the questions that most law enforcement officials ask is whether the driver was impaired. As part of the investigation into the crash, field sobriety tests could be administered if the driver is not seriously injured. If the individual appears to fail those tests, he or she could end up facing charges for DUI.

Which parent can claim the children on taxes after a divorce?

The simple answer to this question is that the Utah parent who is awarded primary physical custody, referred to as the custodial parent, has the right to claim the children on his or her tax returns. However, an exception to this rule allows the non-custodial parent to claim one or more of the children on his or her tax returns after the divorce. Certain requirements must be met in order for this to occur.

Is stopping at DUI checkpoints legally required?

Many law enforcement agencies throughout the country use checkpoints in an attempt to deter drivers from getting behind the wheel of their vehicles after drinking. The question becomes whether Utah drivers are legally required to stop at DUI checkpoints. As is the case with other legal issues, the answer is complicated. 

Choosing between mediation and litigation in a divorce

In the first few days or even weeks after announcing the intention to end a marriage, few Utah residents would believe that they have a choice. The truth is that litigation is costly, time consuming and an emotional drain on everyone involved. However, for some people, there is not enough middle ground to even consider alternatives such as divorce mediation or a collaborative divorce. In those cases, the best that can be hoped for is that there are at least a few issues that can be resolved without involving the court.
