Compassionate Utah Alimony & Child Support Lawyers

Helping clients gain financial security following divorce or separation

It was not so long ago that people maintained failed marriages simply because the economically disadvantaged partner could not afford to leave. When contemplating a divorce or separation, financial security can be a major concern, especially if the other spouse was the primary or sole wage earner. Fortunately, Utah addresses this concern by allowing a spouse or parent to petition for spousal support, alimony and child support before, during and after a divorce. The experienced alimony attorneys of Hanks & Peterson, P.C. understand the process and disclosures required to petition for financial support. We help our clients understand what they are up against, negotiate reasonable settlements when appropriate and aggressively litigate the following support and alimony issues when necessary:

  • Paternity
  • Support orders
  • Alimony
  • Modification of custody or support
  • Enforcement

Real-world experience with support and alimony issues

Much like child custody issues, support and alimony determinations are not simple or automatic and it takes real-world experience to be an effective family law attorney in Utah. The respective financial resources of the parties are a major factor, but other issues come into play. Both parties must make detailed disclosures of their finances before a court can make a determination.

While most people respect the rule of law and follow court requirements, others may underreport income, hide assets or otherwise deceive the other party and the court to obtain a more favorable alimony or support determination. When this occurs, it takes a skilled lawyer to uncover concealed assets or income to ensure justice is served.

At Hanks & Peterson, P.C., we have the special skills to aid clients in these difficult situations. Our staff of attorneys in Utah includes lawyers with a business and accounting background, former prosecutors and fraud litigators. We use our investigative skills to dig deeper when necessary to ensure the other party is being honest with our clients and the court.
