Salt Lake City Child Custody & Support Attorney
Skilled Salt Lake City attorney dedicated to your children’s well-being
Parents must consider not only how divorce affects them, but also how it affects their children — both emotionally and financially. At the Brown Taylor Family Law in Salt Lake City, we help you obtain a fair and reasonable child support arrangement that allows you to raise your child in a safe and healthy environment.
We help parents:
We are also dedicated to fighting for your rights in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. The structured process of mediation can help you both set aside anger and hostility and focus on the crucial issues concerning your children. Mediation can be a highly-effective tool for preserving stability and peace in your home during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. Mediation also presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. We are skilled at maneuvering negotiations toward settlements that protect your child’s best interests and your parental rights.
It may be necessary for you to fight for your children’s best interests at trial. If the other parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward you, negotiations may fail. If you believe the other parent poses a danger to your children’s well-being, you need to go to court to protect them. The uncertainty of litigation often compounds the stress and upheaval already present in your lives at this time. But with the Brown Taylor Family Law by your side, you can feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
Enforcement of child support
If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need assistance to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. We guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.
Modification of child support
Financial problems may put you in a different financial situation than when you and your spouse divorced. However, you must continue to pay child support until the court modifies your order. We can help you expeditiously process a modification of your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.
