Family Law

Family Law in Utah

Family law encompasses a broad range of legal topics involving marriage and children. Specifically, family law includes matters of divorce, child custody and support, spousal support, pre-marital agreements, and adoption. When everything you have and care about is on the line, you may not know who to turn to and the issues you face will have long lasting consequences.

A divorce in family law allows the parties to divide marital property, calculate spousal support, and propose a plan for child custody, visitation, and spousal support. Adoption is a complex process that differs according to the type of adoption, and where the child is from.
