Child Support

We Have The Experience & Expertise

Our sensitive and knowledgeable staff can walk you through the process and inform you of what you are entitled to according to state law. There is nothing more important than the well-being of your children. And when it comes to child custody, it is vital to gain the financial and emotional support needed to allow your children to thrive. That’s why it’s so important to work with a family law firm that understands the ins and outs of child custody in Utah. With our help, you can ensure that your children get the best possible outcome from your divorce or separation.

The court system in Utah takes the best interest of the child as their number one priority. Few decisions are harder for Judges as they appreciate the impact their orders will have on children’s lives. The Judge must first determine whether the child’s parents can agree on a parenting plan. If the parents cannot agree, the Judge will decide custody and visitation based on the child’s best interests. Working alongside you, the team here at Palmer Litigation will be there to guide you every step of the way.

State laws are set to make sure that a child has enough to be supported so that one parent is not left struggling. Child support laws are also in place to ensure that the child’s needs are met.
