When parents go through a divorce, the children must be made a priority no matter how stressful things get. A large part of a Utah divorce agreement will have to do with determining who gets physical custody of the children and how much parenting time the other parent will receive. In the past, courts favored mothers to be the primary caretakers of the children, but nowadays joint physical custody is strongly encouraged so that both parents play an equal role in their children's upbringing.
