Utah Family Law Attorney
One of the biggest reasons why most couples don’t have an uncontested divorce is because of child custody disputes. Both parents are normally coming from the same perspective in that they love their children and want what is best for them, but each parties’ interpretation of what is best is rarely the same. At our firm, our team of licensed family lawyers understands how important child custody issues are and the impact they will have on your life and the lives of your kids. Because of this our lawyers work tirelessly to make sure your interests are protected.
The Child’s Best Interest
When considering child custody issues a judge is ultimately making a decision about what the court believes is in the best interest of the child. The parties, however, can try and persuade the court by offering up their interpretations of what is “best.” This is where an attorney becomes vitally important. By hiring a Utah child custody attorney at our firm, you’ll be hiring an experienced professional that will be your mouthpiece before the court, and will help you put forth the most effective arguments for your case.
Just because you and your spouse are separating does not mean that the best interest of the child is that one of you disappear. As attorney’s we will make sure the court understands your side of the story and make sure that your interests are protected.
Modifying Child Custody
For some people the court’s decision over child custody has already been made and the divorce decree has been entered, but even in these scenarios there are still options. The legal system allows for a divorce modification on the grounds of a substantial change in circumstances. One of the more common things that are requested in regards to modifying the divorce decree is a change in the child custody arrangement.
