Utah parents: get an advocate on your side for custody cases

For many Salt Lake City parents, there is nothing more important in their lives than their children. As a result, when parents go through a divorce, one of the top issues that must be decided is which parent obtains legal and physical custody over the children.

As discussed recently in this blog, courts look at a variety of factors in making a child custody decision. Together, these factors focus on the best interests of the child, which is the primary consideration the court looks to in deciding which parent should be awarded custody.

It is not surprising that there can be significant disagreements between the parents as to what is in the best interests of the child, and how the court should rule in the custody decision. In many cases, there may be some factors that favor one parent, while other factors may weigh in favor of the other parent. Accordingly, different arguments can be made to the court as to which parent should be awarded custody when the factors do not all align with one parent.

Our firm has significant experience and knowledge in child custody cases, as we have helped numerous clients who are fighting for custody of their children. Our experience and knowledge in custody matters gives us the ability to vigorously advocate on behalf of our clients.

For some parents, this means presenting the evidence that is necessary to the court to show why the best interests of the child favor custody with the parent. In other cases, we may be able to take a more cooperative approach with the other parent to come to some agreement over custody, without having to involve the courts.

No matter what approach is taken, our experience and understanding of the law is vital to advocating for the best possible result for our clients. For more information on how our firm can help you if you are in a custody dispute, please visit our website or give us a call.
