Results-Oriented Utah Child Custody Attorneys
Deciding child custody and visitation rights (parenting rights) during a divorce or paternity action can put a tremendous emotional strain on you. Attempting to agree on visitation and parenting schedules can disintegrate into petty arguments, especially if you do not have the guidance of a lawyer skilled in family law matters.
At Wall & Wall, P.C., in Salt Lake City, Utah, our child custody attorneys have helped clients resolve their visitation issues since our law firm was founded in 1973. Our family-owned law firm has more than 190 years of combined legal experience, and we use our team approach to counsel clients throughout Utah in matters like:
- Grandparents’ rights
- Establishing paternity
- Child custody evaluations
- Unmarried child custody rights
- Supervised and unsupervised visitation (parenting rights)
- Modifications of earlier custody and visitation agreements
- Joint / shared custody versus sole / physical / legal custody
Beware of Advertised Mediation Services
Some companies advertise “self-service” mediation services without a lawyer’s presence. Sure you may save money, but having one of our experienced family law attorneys by your side during mediation will protect your rights. Our years of experience can help avert any potential pitfalls or points of contention.
We Represent Cases Involving Fathers’ Rights Too
Our Utah child custody attorneys often get male clients who have given up on ever seeing their children. Whether they were legally married or were an unwed parent, these men come to us believing that courts and cultural biases tend to favor giving the mother automatic custody in most cases. Our child custody lawyers will make sure that the father’s rights are also taken into account in deciding custody and visitation matters.
We have also handled cases where it is necessary to enforce parental rights. In some instances, DNA tests are often required to establish paternity.
