Sandy, UT Child Custody Lawyers

Book A Free Consultation

When you and your spouse decide to divorce, several important decisions must be made with a careful, clear mind amid an emotionally chaotic time. If you have children together, your most important decision is regarding their custody arrangements! 

Hopefully, you’re both able to prioritize whatever is in your child’s best interest when it comes to sharing custody, as that will make a stressful situation a bit easier. As hard as it is on you to split from your spouse, it’s just as hard, if not harder, for a child to watch it happen from the outside. It is likely that they’ll be experiencing feelings of anger, hurt, and fear of what’s to come. That’s why we encourage amicable solutions, as your relationship with your child can quickly change when they watch their parents go to war during this process. Even if you and your former spouse believe you can negotiate on your own terms, it is always best to have seasoned legal representation on your side to keep things fair and keep the peace as much as possible. 

Our Sandy child custody lawyers can help you reach an arrangement that works for you and your family. Trust Green Legal Group to protect your rights as a parent and meet your child’s needs. Call today to schedule a free consultation and learn about what steps come next!

What Does Child Custody In Sandy, Utah Involve?

There are several vital decisions that have to be made when it comes to child custody, including: 

  • When and where the child lives
  • How frequently the child visits each parent
  • Where the child will visit each parent
  • Which holidays will the child spend with their parents 
  • Which parent will pay child support to the other
  • Who will provide health care for the child
  • Who will claim the child on taxes
  • And more!

In Utah, there is both physical custody and legal custody, which allows a parent to make important decisions on behalf of the child. While one parent could have sole custody, Utah law favors both parents being involved in their child’s life. However, there are certain circumstances where sole custody might be necessary if one parent has a  history of domestic abuse, substance abuse, or mental health issues. 

Utah’s courts will decide on custody arrangements after they evaluate your familial situation and what’s in the best interest of your child. If your child is old enough to express a preference for whom they live with, that will also be taken into consideration.
