Experienced Divorce Attorney in Murray, Utah
Going through a divorce is never easy. There are a number of things to consider, including separation, child custody, division of financial interests and in some cases, alimony. The stress associated with divorce can affect the entire family emotionally and financially. We provide comprehensive counsel during this difficult time to ensure your interests are represented.
How can a Murray Utah divorce lawyer help me?
Divorce attorneys are designed to protect your interests every step of the way. You should never go into divorce proceedings blind. Having competent counsel will ensure you understand the process and will not get taken advantage of. Our representation includes:
We file or respond to petitions, submit requests for documentation and more. There are a number of divorce types, including contested and uncontested, military, same-sex, and high net worth. We also represent clients in legal separations and work with them to educate and communicate the estimated timeline for divorce. Activating any prenuptial or postnuptial agreements also play a role. We review and advise on the best course of action.
- Child Support
Things can get very awkward when children are involved. Not only are the parents affected, but so are the children. Utah laws on child support can be complicated. We work through the process to ensure the children’s financial interests are taken care of.
- Child Custody/Visitation
Child custody and visitation can also complicate things, especially if the parents are not amicable during the divorce proceedings. We assist in providing what is needed to determine shared or sole custody, as well as visitation schedules that work in the best interest of the parents and the child(ren).
Alimony is an integral part of any divorce proceeding if one of the parties is unable to maintain the same quality of life. Determining what the parties are entitled to, and for how long should always begin with counsel.
- Division of Assets & Debts
One of the most difficult and challenging areas of a divorce is the division of assets & debts, especially if the couple has substantial interests. We review and counsel our clients on what they should receive, whether they should unload certain assets, and fighting to exclude debt that may not be part of their personal interests.
- Divorce Mediation
Mediation is usually recommended in the beginning stages of a divorce. We work with our clients to ensure all their concerns are being addressed during this time. In some cases, mediation solves a number of problems and the divorce can be resolved amicably.
We work with clients who have interests in the children attached to the relationship to assist in establishing paternity, custody or visitation.
