What actions may be taken if one does not pay child support?

Not every parent who separates from their partner or goes through a divorce will be required to pay child support. This is because in some situations, Utah courts may find that the children's best interests are achieved through custodial arrangements that permit each parent to provide for their child, while the youth is under their roof. In other scenarios, a parent may not earn enough income to pay child support. Orders and agreements, regarding the support of children, are specific to the cases from which they arise.

The Utah child support guidelines use a complex mathematical calculation to determine how much of a parent's income should be set aside for the financial support of their children.

The family law process provides resources to help parents seek a child support modification when needed.
