New child custody law passes in Utah

Keeping in line with traditional thinking and, what some would say, are outdated laws, courts have predominantly awarded custody of a couple's children to one parent -- the mother in the majority of cases. However, a significant amount of research done in recent years shows that children tend to do better when the parents share custody. This belief is behind a new child custody law that was recently passed in Utah that encourages the courts to award shared custody to divorcing or separating parents.

Infidelity can affect the outcome of a Utah divorce

Many people would consider one of the biggest betrayals in any marriage to be infidelity. Adultery often destroys not only the marriage, but the family as well, and one party often files for divorce. Most divorces in Utah are considered to be due to irreconcilable differences, but the fact that one spouse broke the couple's wedding vows can still affect the outcome of the proceedings.

Now, more than ever, parents are awarded joint child custody

Traditionally, divorce courts in Utah and elsewhere awarded sole custody of any minor children to the mother. Fathers were relegated to being "weekend dads" to their children. Fortunately, that bias appears to be waning, as more courts favor joint child custody agreements now than at any other time in our nation's history.
