Understanding the law in a family law dispute

Most Salt Lake City residents would rather avoid being involved in a lawsuit when they have a choice in the matter. Of course, this is not always possible with many cases, such as in a divorce case, where an individual must go through the legal process in order to handle certain disputes.

Even after going through this process, however, disputes can arise in the future. Last week, for example, this blog discussed the changes that can happen in a person's life over time, including changes that bring about family law issues.

For instance, after the establishment of a spousal support order, changes may occur in either the payor's life or the recipient's life. Faced with these changes, one of the former spouses may desire to change the spousal support order, but this can only be accomplished if there has been a substantial material change in circumstances that was not foreseeable at the time of the divorce.

This standard, like others in family law, is a legal standard that is only met when certain facts are present. Accordingly, individuals need to understand what legal standards apply for a given issue, what the legal standard means and how they can best meet that legal standard in their case.

Our firm has years of experience in helping our clients understand and satisfy these difficult legal standards. We have the ability to understand the issues our clients are facing and explain how the law applies in their particular case. We can then assess the facts and present the best case possible under the circumstances on behalf of our clients. For more information on our firm's services, please visit our family law page.
