Focused on Important Family Law Matters

Divorce is just as common in Utah as it is elsewhere in the country, with nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce. Although divorce may be a common phenomenon in modern life, however, each individual divorce case is as unique as the couple involved. From determining how children will spend time with their parents to dividing up property and assets, your divorce order should reflect the exact needs of your entire family – and not just the needs of one individual person.

Depending on the complexity of your estate and your married life, the entire divorce process may only take a few months, or it may extend for much longer. Under Utah law, you must wait at least 90 days after filing your petition for divorce to receive a final court order, with very few exceptions allowed. By relying on the skills of an experienced divorce attorney, however, you may be able to find a peaceful resolution that benefits everyone, without the need for lengthy court battles.

We offer guidance for those who need help with the following issues during divorce:

  • Uncontested or contested divorce
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • High-net-worth divorces
  • Child support
  • Property and debt division
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Child support and custody modifications
  • Business valuations
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Custody order enforcement

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Methods for Your Divorce

In Utah, divorcing couples are legally required to attend at least one session of mediation (a form of alternative dispute resolution or ADR) before litigating the matter in court. This allows the divorcing couple to work together on a positive solution, reducing the threat of bitter and costly court experiences. As seasoned mediators who have served South Jordan and all of Utah for years, our team at Pearson Butler can help you navigate this process and work towards a harmonious agreement for everyone involved.
