In Utah, courts decide child custody and parent plan matters in ways that are in the “best interest” of the child. That usually means solutions that enable both parents to share in parenting duties and enjoy quality time with the child. Though a 50-50 shared physical custody arrangement is possible, in most cases the child will live primarily with one parent during the week, with the other parent enjoying time with the child every other weekend. Many different child custody and parent plan arrangements are possible, however, depending on the needs of the child and what is in his or her best interest.

Developing The Parent Plan That Is Right For You And Your Child
A parenting plan can be very specific, spelling out in detail such matters as the school the child is to attend, precise pickup times and so on. Parents who have a more cooperative attitude toward child rearing duties may be able to operate with a more general parenting plan.
Having represented many parents over the course of his legal career, Salt Lake City family law attorney David Pedrazas understands the legal and practical aspects of child custody and parent plan issues. In your case, he will learn about your needs and those of your children, as well as the state of your relations with your spouse or ex-spouse.
In many cases, David Pedrazas can negotiate a workable custody and parent plan. If that is not possible, then he can represent you in court, where the matter will be resolved by a judge, in accordance with the parent plan guidelines in Utah Code §30-3-35. By going to court, however, you give control over the outcome to the judge. David Pedrazas can advise you, and if necessary, provide results-oriented representation in court.
