Understand your options when it comes to adoption

Several weeks ago this Salt Lake City family law blog explored some important financial considerations that individuals should make when pursuing private adoptions. The legal realm of adoption, however, extends far beyond the money one may need to expend in order to become an adoptive parent. Adoption can be a legally difficult process, regardless of the path taken.

Understanding the factors used to determine child custody

What is in the best interests of the child is always the guiding interest for child custody decision. There are two ways that child custody orders are commonly established in Utah. Provided the parents are able to agree, and the child custody arrangement they agree upon is in the best interests of the child, the court will order the child custody arrangement the parents have agreed to. If the parents are unable to agree on a child custody arrangement, the court will order an arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.

Child custody modification and the child's best interests

In Utah, when a couple shares a child and has an agreement for child custody, there are times when one or both parents would like to make changes. With agreement modification, there are numerous issues that are taken into consideration. The best interests of the child are paramount. Those seeking a modification need to know these when the case begins.
