Midvale, UT Child Custody Lawyers

Book A Free Consultation

When a family with minor children engages in the divorce process, child custody frequently tops the list of issues that can complicate the way forward and prevent the divorce from being smooth and uncontested. Custody is extremely challenging. It often creates conflict fueled by hurt and anger and fear – emotions that can alienate spouses, be difficult on children, and make reaching an amicable resolution less likely. Because how custody is set will affect every area of you and your children’s lives for years to come, it is in your best interests to work with compassionate Midvale custody lawyers who can help you find an arrangement that protects your parental rights and your family’s future. Call Green Legal Group today to schedule a free 30 minute consultation and learn more about your legal options.

What Does Child Custody In Utah Involve?

There are many decisions that have to be made during the custody process, including:

  • Where the children will live
  • When and where children and parents can visit each other
  • Who makes decisions for the children
  • Who pays child support to whom, and how much
  • Who provides healthcare for the children
  • Who can file their taxes claiming their children as dependents
  • And more. 

In Utah, custody is divided into categories of physical custody (who the child is physically under the care of) and legal custody (who has the authority to make major decisions for the child). Custody can also be sole or joint. While it is encouraged to have both parents in the children’s lives, and equally so as much as possible, sometimes this will just not be an option. In those cases, the Midvale court system will consider a variety of factors (which may include your child’s wishes, information provided by your child’s primary care physician, your living situation, and more). 

The divorce court will make decisions for child custody based on the information each party gives them. Working with our experienced Midvale child custody lawyers helps you present your side with better clarity. We will advocate for the best possible outcome for you and your children!

Our Midvale Custody Lawyers Promote Cooperation 

Creating an amicable atmosphere to navigate custody is high on Green Legal Group’s list during divorce proceedings. Due to the highly emotional nature of child custody battles, parents often fail to realize the damage that their negative relationship with the other parent does to their child. However, working with your spouse despite your differences helps you provide your child with the best post-divorce life possible. Good parents want their children to grow up in a positive, healthy home, and if you and your spouse can agree on that, you can agree to put your children first and sort through the rest (with the help of lawyers who can make doing so easier!). 

Our Midvale custody lawyers will explain all of your options and do everything in our power to facilitate collaboration, so you and your spouse can stay in control of your child’s future rather than a judge who is a stranger to your family having the final say. 

Sometimes, the other spouse refuses to respond to requests to attend mediation or collaborate and insists on their preferred arrangement. Without legal counsel, you may be unsure how to proceed. Green Legal Group can stand by your side and aggressively represent your interests if necessary.
