Paternity Cases/Child Support
When the paternity of a child is in question, it is important to make sure that the father's rights are looked after. It's not always a simple matter of whether the father is the biological factor. The circumstances behind the case matter as well. For example, if non-biological father has signed the birth certificate of the child in question knowing that he might not be the biological father at the time he signed it, then the court can determine that it's in the best interest of the child to remain in the legal custody of the man he or she knows to be his or her lifelong father. That is if the biological father does not want to pursue his fatherly rights.
In cases where child support is ordered, it needs to be done in a way that takes into consideration both the child's needs and father's income as well as all of his other dependants.
Utah Law Aid has family lawyers in Salt Lake City who can represent you in your divorce proceedings and make sure you get a favorable settlement or ruling. When it comes to matters of alimony, child custody, child visitation, and child support, nothing should be left to fate! Judges tend to side with women more often than not in family court, so going into court as a man without legal representation is like walking into a lion's den alone with T-bone steaks strapped all over your body. Maybe the result won't be as dramatic in court, but Utah Law Aid would like to assure you that the result will not be favorable for you.
Child Custody, Visitation, Court Order Enforcement
Out of all the hearings that take place in family court, perhaps none are as contentious and as significant as child custody and visitation hearings. It's important to have legal representation from the outset in these types of cases because it's very difficult and sometimes impossible to change a custody order once it's made.
The decision made during these court hearings will affect the way your kids grow up until they're adults, and it will affect how much of a parent you get to be to them. Again, leave nothing to fate!
