How the court determines if a parent is unfit

While the courts favor joint custody more often these days, there are still times when sole custody may be the better option. The courts want to make sure that the best interests of the child remain at the forefront of child custody arrangements, so if that means that the other parent should have limited and/or supervised access to the children, that may be the decision.

Child custody: Supporting children after divorce

Ending a marriage can come as a shock to many people. One spouse may not have seen it coming, or both spouses may be surprised that their relationship reached this point. It is also not unusual for any children the couple have to feel shocked and dismayed to learn that their parents are getting divorced, which can often prompt worry in Utah parents, especially in regard to child custody.

Compensation details that could affect divorce

Ending a marriage is a serious endeavor, and various factors can play into the outcomes of the legal process. In particular, the type of income and other compensation that a person generates through his or her employment could have an impact on the property division aspects of divorce. Therefore, it is important that Utah residents assess their compensation structure.

Planning for future finances during divorce

Ending a marriage takes a lot of work. Not only do individuals need to determine how the divorce will affect their immediate lives, but they also need to determine how the major change will impact their futures, especially when it comes to their finances. As a result, close planning is often useful for Utah residents facing this change.

Can having a budget help kids through divorce?

It can be difficult for Utah parents to know the best way to help their kids through a difficult transition. When parents choose to divorce, it can be a tricky scenario to navigate. Wanting to do what is best for the kids during this time may mean taking the time to look at the situation from all angles.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
