One of our primary specialties here at Nelson, Taylor, and Associates is dealing with cases of divorce. Our Utah divorce attorneys are heavily experienced in all aspects of divorce law and have a deeper understanding of each set of laws as they pertain to you. This understanding of certain legal nuances enables us to protect and promote your rights in a variety of ways that can help ease your mind in what is likely a very emotionally volatile time.
Below are some brief bits of information that pertain to divorce law, and may be useful if you are in the midst of a divorce, yourself.
The Court of Utah puts great emphasis on the well being of a child during a divorce. Our Utah divorce attorneys will work with you to find a parenting plan that works for you, your spouse, and your children. Remember, no matter how much you want (or don’t want) your children, the Court will judge in a matter that is best for the children.
In addition to child custody and visitation rights, a plan needs to be established so that the child is cared for financially. Often, the parent who earns more money will need to pay child support. Call our Utah divorce attorneys to learn how the payments are calculated.
Alimony or Spousal Support
Alimony is the same as spousal support. The judge will determine how much money should be paid and for how long. It is based on many factors including the potential of each individual to earn money, the number of children involved, the number of years the couple has been married, the age of the people involved, and the need to keep a similar “standard of living”. The calculation is more subjective than that used to calculate child support.
The items you have accumulated during your marriage will need to be divided after a divorce. It is easiest to divide everything 50:50; however, in some cases, one parent may wish to take possession of one item in exchange for another item which they do not care for. The attorneys at Nelson, Taylor, and Associates can help you negotiate terms that are fair and in your best interest.
