There is no easy way to break up a family. Unfortunately, when a family separates there are emotions that cannot be avoided. This is a really sad time for all who are going through the process. Sometimes anger is involved as well. Many times children will rebel against their parents at times like these because they are confused, hurt, or upset about the situation that they cannot control. In no way shape or form are we bringing this to light in order to make a parent feel guilty; instead, we are suggesting that hiring an attorney to help navigate this space as a third party participant can help you focus on your children while we take care of the legal work and paperwork.
Child Custody falls into many categories in Utah. Here is a shortlist of what to expect when looking at options for child custody:
There are plenty of options for you and your family. The most ideal is the joint legal and joint physical, however, this kind of relationship does require a lot of communication between the parents. If you are able to speak openly and often with your ex-spouse then this option may be available to you. Yet, there is a custody evaluation that you may have to deal with if the courts require it.
A custody evaluation looks at several aspects of a parent such as how much the child likes the parent, moral character, emotional stability, and financial stability of the parent determines where the court thinks the child should reside.
