In Utah there are two main types of custody, Legal and Physical.  Legal Custody concerns legal decision making regarding the children; Physical Custody concerns where the children will live. 

 When you and your ex-partner or spouse are unable to agree to the type of custody arrangement you will have concerning your children,  the Court will oftentimes require a Custody Evaluation to be conducted to assist the Court in determining the best interests of your children.  An Evaluation typically takes numerous months to complete and requires various interviews with you, your ex-spouse or partner, and sometimes, with your children.  We will assist you in preparing a Parenting Plan that best fits your needs and those of your children, as well as guide you through the custody process and ensure that it is as positive as possible for you and your children.
