I worked with Marci for the past 2 years. She was amazing in making me feel confident in all of my decisions and not rushing anything. She was aggressive in court and helped me win my case. When going into Burton law firm, I felt very welcome and helped with the nerves in such a stressful time. 100% recommend Marci to anyone that needs an amazing attorney.

Where to start!? My husband and I originally started working with Michael Lundberg but Kenneth Burton took over our case after Micheal received another opportunity. While I could say great things about both attorneys, Ken Burton really WOWED us as did paralegal Amy. We also worked with support staff Kate and finance guy Darrin - everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. Originally seeking appropriate child support for my husband’s 2 children - his ex wife refused to provide her income (self employed) and retained an attorney herself in attempts to modify the divorce decree, seeking more parent time so her child support payment would not increase. These guys really went to bat for us and made sure it was clear that we weren’t willing to sacrifice any of our time with the kids and take from the stability the children had in our care for the last 8 years and made it clear that she couldn’t run from her child support obligations any longer. Ken sat through a long mediation session, in-person meetings with us, and answered our many questions via email and phone call. Always timely - we never felt any less important than his other cases. He was prepared for this to go to trial but made sure we knew it would be costly and a lengthy process. Luckily it was mediated and we got the results we had desired - increased child support without the loss of time (our residence is still primary) and only some minor tweaks on our end to make her feel like she was getting something out of it all. Ken was very open with us throughout and his appreciation for values was clear. After meeting him just once - I had an instant respect for him. He is level headed and blunt where blunt-ness is due. If we ever were to need any sort of legal representation again - Ken would be our first and only call. During the process my husband even referred to a co-worker to these guys - this just speaks to how great these guys were from start to finish. Having worked with a couple other attorneys in the Ogden area - if you are considering retaining these guys - do it. We are super impressed and equally thankful for everything Ken and his firm has done for us. Kazya & Zack

Our Practice Areas

Divorce

Going through a divorce is difficult for everyone involved. Our goal is to help our clients navigate their divorce case with knowledge and compassion so they can focus on their family.

Paternity

We have assisted and successfully represented numerous clients dealing with paternity issues. Because of our experience dealing with a wide range of paternity-related cases, we can assist clients whether or not they claim to be the father of the child.

Custody & Parent Time

Whether you have a custody battle resulting from an ongoing divorce, or if you’re an unmarried parent fighting for custody of a child, the attorneys at Burton Attorneys at Law have the experience to handle your case.

Child Support

In Utah, by law, every child is entitled to the support of both parents, whether the parents are married or not. Although Utah law provides child support guidelines used by the courts to calculate a parent’s base child support obligation.

Modifications

Modifications in family law refer to changes or adjustments made to existing legal arrangements and court orders related to family matters. These modifications are typically sought when circumstances surrounding issues such as child custody, visitation rights, spousal support, or child support have changed since the original court order was issued.

Mediation

We recommend attending mediation with the help of a legal professional. Mediators are neutral parties who cannot give legal advice. Mediation will involve the discussion relating to all your divorce issues including real estate and personal property issues, division of financial assets (401k, stocks, bonds, etc.)

Step-Parent Adoption

Step-parents often develop a strong bond of love and affection with a stepchild. As a loving figure in a step child’s life, it may be in everyone’s best interests for a step parent to seek an adoption and make the relationship legal.

Probate

When a family member, friend or loved one passes away, his or her estate may have to go through a court process referred to as probate. This is the process whereby the Court appoints an individual, or sometimes multiple individuals, to gather, manage, and ultimately distribute the assets of the one who passed away.

Alimony

There is no set formula to determine when, or if, a party should receive alimony (spousal support) from a divorcing spouse. In determining alimony the courts will consider the needs of the party requesting alimony, the ability of that party to provide for his or her own needs, and the ability of the other divorcing party to pay alimony.

Protective Orders

If you or a loved one needs help navigating the complexities of protective orders. Contact Burton Family Attorneys today for reliable, compassionate, and expert legal representation. Your safety matters, and we are here to help you take the necessary steps toward a more secure future.

Division of Retirement (QDRO)

When a Court grants a decree of divorce, it will also address the parties’ rights with respect to the assets they acquired during their marriage. This includes retirement assets, such as 401(k) accounts, IRAs, and pensions.

Guardianship

A guardian helps an individual care for their physical well-being while a conservator helps an individual handle their financial affairs. By appointing a guardian and/or conservator, you are providing your loved one with the assistance of someone who cares in order to help them handle day to day matters and to make important legal decisions.
