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.

Simply stated, mediation is a non-binding forum for a divorcing couple to work out the terms of their divorce with the help of a trained mediation specialist. The only requirement of mediation is that a party attend and make a good faith effort at resolution.

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-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.

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.

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.

At Burton Law Firm, our family law attorneys have extensive experience assisting clients through all areas of family law. By leveraging the combination of skill with years of experience, our attorneys will do everything in their power to achieve the outcome desired by their clients.

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.

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.
