Utah Adoption Attorney

We love adoptions! Providing competent legal representation throughout the adoption process is one of the most enjoyable aspect of our family law practice. The decision to adopt a child is an exciting one, whether the adoption includes a child you already know or a child you haven’t met. We would love to be involved in your process of adopting. We want you to focus your attention on the child or children involved, so our Utah adoption attorney will devote all the necessary time and attention to ensure the adoption process is as smooth as possible.

Termination of Parental Rights

Adoption can be advantageous for everyone involved: the birth mother, the birth father, and the family adopting the child. If you want to ensure that your child will grow up in a loving home with a nurturing and supportive environment and you are unable, for whatever reason, to provide for the child, adoption is a great option. Our Utah adoption lawyer has the experience, knowledge, and resources to explain the adoption process and make all of the arrangements for adoption.

What Are The Different Adoptions

There are different adoption scenarios with which we can assist:

  1. Open Adoption – An Open Adoption is a situation where the birth parents and adoptive parents know the identity of each other and can remain in contact throughout the child’s life. They can exchange pictures or letter.
  2. Closed Adoption – A Closed Adoption is a situation where the birth parents and adoptive parents do not know each other and do not.
  3. Step-Parent Adoption – If you are a stepparent who wants to become the legal parent of your spouse’s child or children, we can help. The noncustodial biological parent is often required to terminate his or her parental rights.
  4. Grandparent Adoption – If you are a grandparent who wants to become the legal parent of a grandchild, we can help. If the biological parents are living it is often required that they terminate their parental rights.

Utah Divorce FAQs

Child support in Utah is based on a formula that can easily be calculated if the income of both spouses is known. You can use the calculator at Office of Recovery Services locate at Office of Recovery Services  – (utah.gov).

Your property will be categorized as either a non-maritital asset or a marital asset. If the property was acquired during the marriage it will generally be a martial asset.

Each party will receive their separate property. Marital property will generally be divided equitably. 

Alimony is a remedy awarded to help a financially weaker spouse become self-sufficient. In Utah alimony is discretionary and is not awarded in every case. Factors that a court will consider in determining if alimony should be awarded and if so how much includes: 

  • Income and financial resources of both parties
  • Age
  • Emotional & physical condition of each party
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Length of the marriage
Other factors can impact alimony such as “cause” such as an affair during marriage, cohabitation after divorce and employment.

Each party typically is responsible for his or her own legal expenses and costs associated with divorce. In some case, the court may award attorney’s fees.

In Utah if the divorce is contested (an answer is filed), then mediation is required. In some cases more than one mediation will be necessary to resolve all the issues.
