Utah family law was designed to benefit every member of the family and to protect the weak and vulnerable. Utah family law was designed with protecting the best interests of children as its number one priority and helping families through tough times.

Our Job is to Make Sure You Have a Favorable Settlement or Ruling
When parents can't come to an agreement, they need a mediator. More often than not, we are able to work with the other parent or with their legal counsel to cross the bridge between the two parties and talk some sense into them. Most people are reasonable deep down, but during family law proceedings, their feelings get in the way of rationality. Judges prefer that couples settle amicably in family court, and so do we. However, settling amicably does not mean acquiescing to the other party's every demand or agreeing to unreasonable terms.
Conduct Yourself as if You're Being Watched at All Times
In divorce and family law cases, parties often hire private detectives to investigate the behaviors of the other party. Nothing could be more damning for a person in family court than to have a videotape or audio recording of them doing something they shouldn't be doing. When you're going through a family law case, you want to be on your best behavior at all times, even when you think no one is looking.
This is especially true in cases where children are involved. Since custody, visitation, and child support are all in the table, the judges pay close attention to the character and integrity of each parent and how they interact with each other and their children during the proceedings. Just because your ex gets dirty and wants to go into the gutter doesn't mean you have sling mud too! Keep your hands clean and avoid doing anything that could be used against you at all costs!
