OGDEN & SALT LAKE CITY FATHERS RIGHTS ATTORNEY
Protecting Your Family Interests Since 2011: 801.337.4355
Parents are granted equal rights pertaining to matters of child visitation and custody. Fathers often feel they are not provided the same legal rights for child custody. In the past, Utah was known as a state that primarily favored mothers over fathers, while this has changed over the years, there is still some favoritism we do see from time to time. Due to this, it is vital to have an attorney that understands this problem and works hard to ensure that your parental rights are represented fairly in a court of law.
Special Needs Divorce Agreement
Care must be given pertaining to many of the issues children with special needs face. Guardianship, eligibility for quasi-government or private agency benefits, employment needs, recreation and social skills, custodial care requirements, and independent living are all included in the divorce case with a special needs child. Unlike a traditional child custody case, parents of special needs children need to consider life-long care for their children, not just ending child support and custody needs like a traditional child custody case.
Alimony for Special Needs Divorce
A special needs child custody case does consider the needs for alimony based on the child’s eligibility for public benefits. SSI and Medicaid will be reviewed with a “means test” of the custodial parent. During the divorce process, it is vital to have government benefits reviewed to assist in avoiding future child custody disputes.
