The Law Offices of David Pedrazas: Helping Individuals Get the Terms They Need
There are some divorces that can be done amicably and without issue, such as the separation of two people without kids or property. However, if there are any children, property, or debts accrued during the marriage, then things get tricky and it is in your best interest to get a Highland, UT divorce attorney who will fight for your best interests. This includes situations such as the following:
Alimony is often one of the biggest contentions between ex-spouses. Our law offices work both sides of this matter, helping some of our clients negotiate prompt and fair alimony payments and ensure others are not overburdened with unfair payment requests.
Division of Assets & Debts
During the course of a marriage, the court stops seeing spouses as individuals and instead as a combined unit. This often makes things difficult when it’s time for a marriage to end. Our team will help you navigate that exit cleanly by providing friendly legal counsel that will ensure you get a fair division of assets and debts that will set you up for a secure future and a less stressed present.
Divorce isn’t an event that just impacts spouses. Our team of attorneys and paralegals has significant experience in all family law proceedings and work hard to ensure our clients find a fair balance of financial obligations — and ensure those finances go directly to supporting their child or children.
Child Custody and Visitation
To add to the above point, if you decide or the court decides you to be the non-custodial parent, then you need a bold divorce attorney who will fight for your parental rights. Parents should not be denied visitation, and we work personally with each of our clients to determine their unique situation and desires so that we can create the best personalized strategy to present to the court that will secure desired custody and visitation.
Utah has its own specific laws regarding paternity and establishing legal paternity is necessary for matters of child support, visitation rights, child custody, and child benefits (ie a child cannot inherit a father’s veteran benefits if legal paternity was never established).
