Experienced Utah Child Custody Lawyers

Helping parents resolve custody disputes in a constructive manner

Child custody is often a difficult issue, particularly when it involves young and impressionable children. It is always best to resolve custody disputes in a collaborative manner that decreases the stress put on the child and lays the groundwork for parents to work together. At Hanks & Peterson, P.C., our staff of experienced attorneys includes lawyers skilled in mediation practice. Resolving custody disputes requires the discretion and judgment only many years of experience can bring.

Taking decisive action when necessary

Unfortunately, a constructive solution is not always an option. Because of the vulnerability of children, custody issues can sometimes rise to the level of an emergency. When this occurs, a Utah family lawyer must take swift action if the neglect or misconduct of a parent or guardian puts a child at risk. Our child custody attorneys understand the rules and procedures of Utah family courts and have the real-world experience to know how those rules play out in day-to-day life. We use our decades of experience to help clients with many custody issues that include:

  • Full custody
  • Shared custody
  • Protection from abuse
  • Enforcement
  • Temporary or emergency custody orders
  • Modification of custody orders

It takes experience to be an effective child custody attorney. Utah laws are very subjective and place priority on the best interests of the children involved in a custody case. Convincing a court where the best interests of a child lie takes a thorough mastery of the facts of a case and the skills of an effective advocate. We fully appreciate the gravity of child custody disputes and apply our combined decades of family law experience to every case we handle.
