In Utah, there are several options for custody, including sole (one parent has custody) and joint (both parents share custody). There are also different types of custody, such as physical custody (time with the child) and legal custody (decision-making authority over the child). When one parent has sole physical custody, then parent time (or visitation rights) must also be determined. It’s a complex situation, and you can navigate it much more easily with a lawyer who can explain how it works and who can guide you every step of the way through the process.
The Utah court system will focus on the best interests of your child. They will examine all the evidence related to your case; in certain circumstances, they may even talk to your children. They will also look at information from your child’s primary care provider to determine what your child is familiar with. Then they will do their best to provide your child with an environment that is stable, nurturing, and safe. However, the court doesn’t know your family, and may be biased against you for a variety of different reasons, which is why it is important to have a team of lawyers on your side, representing your parental rights and presenting your case for custody in the best light. Green Legal Group will help you navigate the system and communicate with the courts according to your custody goals.
Determining Custody Is Always Hard, But Green Legal Group Makes It Easier By Promoting A Cooperative Environment.
Good parents want what is best for their child. And the best way to achieve what is truly in the child’s best interests is for both parents to work together. It’s not always easy to do this, depending on your relationship with your spouse, but our attorneys have a proven track record of promoting a cooperative environment to ensure the best outcome for the children. It is critical to realize that a solid custody arrangement does not have to be entirely one parent or the other. We can help you and your spouse or former spouse come to a joint-custody agreement that is best for your child so they can grow up in a nurturing environment, which is what you really want for your child! Sharing equal time with the children is fair to both parents and allows the children to have as much time with both parents as possible.
Of course, there are instances where joint custody is not reasonable, and fighting can’t be avoided. There are cases where it is in the children’s best interest to be raised by one parent with only visitation by the other parent (or even no contact at all). In these cases, we are prepared and can advocate for you to receive sole custody.
