Divorce, child custody and spousal support representation in Orem

Most family law issues concern divorce and the related matters that a couple must resolve when they dissolve their marriage. Our family law attorneys provide guidance and representation for:

  • Divorce — There are different processes for getting a divorce. We help you choose the path that best suits your circumstances and your goals for life after divorce. Are you ready for a final divorce, or should you first try a legal separation? Should you get a quick, uncontested divorce, or are your differences, especially with regard to raising your children, important enough to go to trial over? Do you need protections, such as a restraining order and temporary support during the divorce? These are questions our knowledgeable attorneys help you answer.
  • Child support — Utah has state child support guidelines, but judges have discretion to deviate from the guidelines. We work diligently to resolve this issue fairly, based on financial realities and your children’s needs.
  • Child custody and visitation — Where should your children live, and who should have authority to make decisions for their upbringing, religious formation, education, health and welfare? In child custody disputes, we work to protect your parental rights and the best interests of your children.
  • Alimony — One of the most important issues for your financial future is whether your divorce decree will order alimony or spousal support, and in what amount. We uncover pertinent facts to present to the court so you can get a fair determination based on your actual financial circumstances.

Even when you have serious disagreements with your spouse, it can still be possible to avoid a trial and reach a marital settlement agreement. Our divorce lawyers employ various methods, including divorce mediation, to save you time, expense and emotional turmoil.

  • "Steve has been our family attorney for over 15 years. Over the years Steve has been there to help us with our estate planning needs. Every time I would leave on a vacation without the kids I would have panic attacks about not having my estate in order. We have a special needs son so that added to my anxiety. Steve helped us plan for our future with how to structure our estate to best meet the needs of our family. Now I can go on vacation and leave at least that worry behind. A few months before our son turned 18 we had to petition the court to become our son's legal guardian. Steve was there to make sure everything was in order. It was a smooth process. I would highly recommend Steve and his associated to take care of your Family Law needs!!"  -Teri T., 5.0 rating ★★★★★
