Resolving Divorce Issues in Utah
If you are facing a divorce, you will have to make numerous important decisions about your home, assets and children. Because divorce is a stressful, emotional time, most people find that counsel from a compassionate attorney helps them consider all of their options before making decisions.
Our lawyers will help you explore issues such as:
- Property and asset division: In Utah, marital property is divided by equitable distribution. Equitable distribution means that the marital assets will be divided fairly between the parties, which is not necessarily a 50-50 division.
- Spousal support: There are two types of alimony in Utah: alimony paid while the divorce is in process and alimony that is paid after the divorce is final.
- Child custody: In Utah, custody is determined by what is in the best interests of the child. If the parents cannot agree on what is in the child's best interests, the court will decide.
- Visitation: Unless there are concerns about parental fitness or ability to care for the child, Utah courts believe that children are best served by spending time with both of their parents.
- Child support: Utah child support guidelines calculate each parent's child support obligations based on factors such as the incomes of both parents, the child custody arrangement and the number of children supported.
If you and your spouse agree on how to resolve all of these issues, your divorce will be uncontested. However, if you are unable to reach on any of these issues, your divorce is considered contested.
