We are committed to giving you the best legal experience possible.

Divorce

Marriages are meant to last for a lifetime, but we can’t avoid instances when couples decide to go their separate ways.

Adultery, Verbal Abuse and Physical Abuse are the common reasons why many file for divorce.

The sad truth is, almost 50% of marriages in America end up in divorce.

We can help you through this trying stage in your life by being there during negotiation, mediation and representation in trials.

Annulment

Although annulment cases in Utah are rare as they come, we can assist you if you decide to file for an annulment complaint.

We will help you find out if you are qualified, and if you have a strong case.

If you want your marriage to be declared as null and void, then annulment is your best option.

Another great benefit of filing for an annulment is there is no waiting period, or in some cases, you get a shorter waiting time.

There is also no division of property, and you can get yourself free from the conditions of a pre-nuptial agreement.

Take note that the Court may still decide regarding child custody and support, if applicable.

An annulment may seem like a simple process, but you need to get it done correctly for the courts to decide in your favor.

A divorce is always a second option, if ever annulment proceedings don’t work out.

Child Custody

Utah courts are known to encourage separated or divorced parents to agree on a parenting schedule that would serve the best interests of their child.

A good parenting plan needs to consider special occasions like birthdays, Christmas, New Year, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.

If parents can’t agree on a schedule, the court steps in and implements a schedule that it believes is the best for the child or children involved.

Adoption

Adding a child to a family is always a blessing. We can help guide you through the whole process to ensure that your adoption will be a success.

Failure to adopt can be a painful experience for a would-be parent, allow us to come up with a plan and implement it for you.

We have experience in handling agency adoption, private adoption, step-parent adoption and international adoption.
