International Custody Lawyer

2018-01-15T02:43:15.145-08:00

While countless families in Utah and across the country may be all too familiar with the trials and tribulations often associated with divorce and custody disputes. As a Custody Lawyer, I’ve seen some tough situations, but hopefully only few know what it’s like to have such issues play out from another country. Unfortunately for one family, a major child custody battle is forcing an American mother and daughter out of the U.S. indefinitely.Several factors seem to be keeping details regarding the international case scarce, but the American consulate is apparently working with the mother, according to Brazil’s U.S. Embassy. Furthermore a U.S. federal judge is appointed to the case. Beyond that, representatives from the mother’s home state are said to be coordinating efforts with the U.S. State Department to arrange for the mother and daughter’s return. However, the woman’s family claims that little is being done to help.INTERNATIONAL CUSTODY DISPUTE KEEPS MOTHER AND DAUGHTER IN BRAZILThe mother and daughter first left for Brazil in late May and have been there ever since. At the beginning of June, Brazilian federal police allegedly confiscated the passports of the woman and her 6-year-old daughter after the child’s father filed a request through the court system. He claims that he was denied visitation time with his daughter even though that was the purpose of their trip, and that he simply wants to see her. However, the mother supposedly changed her plans to meet her ex-husband after learning he planned to seek custody of their child. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>The mother and her family are using social media outlets to spread awareness of their situation. It is unclear if any arrangements are planned to allow the ex-husband to see his daughter.COLLABORATIVE LAW: AN INNOVATIVE OPTION FOR UTAH DIVORCE NEGOTIATIONMany people face the divorce process with dread. Some are concerned about their attorneys’ ability to negotiate on their behalves, or if they cannot settle the terms of their divorces by negotiation, the prospect of judges deciding such personal matters might sound even more unpredictable.In recent times, a new method of divorce negotiation has taken off in Utah as it has in many other states: collaborative law. The collaborative process was developed as an alternative to the traditional adversarial model wherein divorcing spouses usually assumed a suspicious, combative stance throughout the process.In collaborative law, the parties enter into an agreement in which they pledge to negotiate the terms of a divorce agreement with respect and cooperation, and outside of court, although the agreement must ultimately be approved by a judge.They also agree to exchange relevant information freely between them and be truthful. In a major change from traditional divorce, they sit down and negotiate around a table with each of their divorce attorneys present and participating. Together, the four of them hammer out an agreement.The process allows for creativity and a dialog not otherwise available in traditional divorce. It may tend to appeal to couples that are still on good terms and able to effectively communicate. However, if they reach an impasse or find the discussions are tougher than anticipated, they can engage a professional therapist skilled in conflict resolution to help them communicate better, sometimes known as a divorce coach.In fact, a major feature of the collaborative process is the use of neutral experts. For example, the couple could hire a financial expert to help them understand their prospective budgets after marriage and the tax consequences of various arrangements. Or they could retain a parenting expert to talk to the children and provide valuable insights to use in fashioning future&nb[...]



PACA Trust Protection

2018-01-14T18:58:02.550-08:00

There are PACA trust protections for both sellers and shippers.PACA Trust TermsIn order to understand how the PACA trust protects you as a produce seller or shipper, it is helpful to know a few terms that are used to talk about PACA:“PACA trust creditor”The sellers or suppliers of produce which have taken the additional legal steps to obtain PACA trust protections are known as “PACA trust creditors.” Both US and foreign based produce sellers and suppliers of produce can qualify to become a PACA trust creditor.“PACA trust debtor” – “Subject to the PACA trust”Any person or entity required to be licensed under PACA which receive produce from a PACA trust creditor are known as a “PACA trust debtors”.  All produce receivers with operations in the United States that either receive more than one ton of produce in a day from across state lines or from outside the US are subject to the rules of the PACA trust and are PACA trust debtors.  All retailers that sell more than $230,000 of produce in a year at retail are also PACA trust debtors, including restaurants.Although these businesses and traders are required to be licensed by the PACA Branch of the USDA, and they are in violation of the law if they do not obtain a license, these traders are still subject to the rules and restrictions of the PACA trust even if they fail to obtain a PACA license and their shippers can still qualify for PACA trust protections against these receivers.   Even if your US produce receiver does not have a PACA license, you can still be protected by the PACA trust if the receiver is required to have the license.   Produce receivers cannot avoid the PACA trust and its requirements by refusing to obtain a PACA license.   Another way to describe a PACA trust debtor is to say that this trader is “subject to the PACA trust.” class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/USR93G3bzUY?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>“PACA trust assets”As a PACA Attorney, we’ve talked about these things before.Any asset, including cash, accounts receivable, real estate, equipment or any other assets that a PACA trust debtor has obtained or purchased through any funds or other assets that were obtained from trading in produce are known as a PACA trust asset. Even if an asset was not directly acquired from a produce transaction, it can still be a PACA trust asset.  If a produce buyer uses cash generated from a produce sale to purchase a warehouse and then the warehouse is sold and the proceeds from the sale of the warehouse are used to purchase a farm, the farm is still a PACA trust asset.What happens if the PACA trust debtor mixes PACA trust assets with assets that are not PACA trust assets?   If a PACA trust debtor mixes PACA trust assets, which were obtained directly or indirectly from produce sales, with non-PACA trust assets, for example from sales of flour or meat, all of the assets that were mixed together can be used to pay an unpaid PACA trust creditors.  So if a grocery store has one bank account into which it deposits the cash generated from sales of both produce and products which are not subject to the PACA protections, all the money in that bank account is considered part of the PACA trust. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/kbCJlhjuKQw?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>If a PACA trust debtor wants to protect some assets that were obtained from sources other than produce from claims of PACA trust creditors, the PACA trust debtor must keep these assets strictly segregated from produce assets.  If these two [...]

Divorce is no laughing matter. But over the years, divorce lawyers have seen many television comedies that center around this sensitive topic, including “Reba”, “Cougar Town”, “The New Adventures of Christine”. But a new HBO comedy is now taking divorce to a new direction. The show, appropriately named “Divorce”, stars Sarah Jessica Parker and is being hyped as a comedy. But if you have watched the show, there is hardly anything funny. However, that does not mean Divorce is a bad show. It does manage to effectively capture the hurtful, spiteful and painful emotions countless couples in Salt Lake City go through on a regular basis.NEW HBO COMEDY CAPTURES THE PAIN OF DIVORCEWhat makes divorce a powerful show is its ability to reach people who have or have not gone through divorce. Parker portrays Frances, a scatterbrained woman who is involved in an unhappy marriage and begins to evaluate her life. Like many people who have gone through divorce, Frances quickly discovers that making a clean break is not always easy. Parker’s character is a woman who has fallen out of love with her husband Robert, played by actor Thomas Haden Church. She decides to have an affair with a man, who lacks any semblance of intellect. But at the same time, she has not taken any steps to end her marriage. She then changes her mind after her friend Diane, played by Molly Shannon, decides to pull out a gun during her 50th birthday party. From that point, Frances begins the long process of painful moments that many divorced people experience. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>The show Divorce has plenty of awkward moments. At times, they can seem funny–especially to those who have never experienced divorce at any level. But make no mistake, this is not a comedy. Instead, When watching divorce for the first time, many viewers may begin to get the impression Frances is an extension of Carrie Bradshaw, the character played by Parker in the longtime HBO series “Sex in the City”. However, Parker has repeatedly insisted Frances is distinct from any character she has ever portrayed.DIVORCE AFFECTS MEN AND WOMEN DIFFERENTLYWhether you are going through a divorce in Salt Lake City or have already been through the process, the television show can sometimes be a bitter reminder. Frances and Robert have two teenage children, Lila and Tom. Like children of divorce in real life, they also find themselves caught in the middle of their parent’s bitter breakup. The truth is divorce does not just affect the couple. It has ramifications on just about every meaningful person in their life–whether it is your family, friends or business associates. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/fSt7dj7HHz4?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>Many people watch television and movies to escape from real life problems. But there are times when art truly does imitate life. Divorce is one of those shows that entertains and yet makes us realize the seriousness, pain and anguish countless couples face. If you are thinking about filing for divorce in Salt Lake City, schedule a consultation with an experienced family attorney that can effectively help evaluate your situation and explain your legal options.DIVORCE EFFECTS AND PREVALENCEIt may be helpful to understand a little about divorce and the typical effects it has on men and women.

Child Pornography Charges

2018-01-09T18:34:20.347-08:00

Child pornography charges–until recently, state possession of child pornography charges, second degree felonies, required the convicted person to register on the sex offender registry for ten years.  The ten years started running when the defendant was no longer on probation or parole.Now, however, the Utah legislature has changed that.  Pleading guilty to a second degree felony child pornography charge will place the defendant on the sex offender registry for life.  This has a significant impact on the person’s life as it restricts a person from living within a certain distance from schools and churches.  The defendant is prohibited from visiting locations populated by children, such as parks. If you need a criminal lawyer, be sure to call Ascent Law today.Child Pornography Charges Require Lifetime Registration In UtahAlthough your attorney should tell you about your placement on the sex offender registry, if your attorney fails to notify you of this “collateral consequence,” you will not be able to withdraw your plea.  State v. Trotter states that the consequences of being registered as a sex offender do not amount to a restriction that is as severe as deportation.  Therefore a defense attorney need not inform you of your placement on the sex offender registration because of your plea. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/6p03CACICMY?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>It is critical that you consult a defense attorney with extensive experience in handling child pornography cases and who understands all of the consequences that can happen as the result of a conviction.Child Pornography Investigation In UtahChild Pornography Investigation–what should you expect if you are being investigated for possessing child pornography?  It will probably start with a knock at the door by law enforcement informing you that they have a warrant to search your phone, computers, etc. for child pornography.  Extremely stressful –to say the least.As law enforcement agents proceed to do preliminary tests on your computer to check for child pornography, another officer will generally attempt to interview you.  Because you are not in police custody, you will not be given your Miranda rights.  Before giving an interview, ask for an attorney.Your computers, cell phone and other items authorized to be seized in the warrant will be taken by officers.  Because of a backlog at the crime lab, it takes months, sometimes up to a year, for the computers to be analyzed.  Law enforcement officers often will tell suspects that they will be contacted once an investigation is complete.  Be sure to contact an attorney immediately.  I have received calls from many who end up in jail on a huge warrant because they thought they’d be notified by law enforcement before a warrant goes out.It is easier to keep a person out of jail than to get a person out of jail. A qualified attorney can track your case with law enforcement and the district attorney to determine if/when charges will be filed. This allows an attorney to arrange for a surrender on a warrant, hopefully with release to an agency that will supervise the defendant without him having to post bail.Can A Selfie Lead To A Child Pornography Charge In Utah?In an age when social media seems to have become one of the available means of communication, photographs as part of a text message, email or social media upload have become common.

What is an Irrevocable Trust?

Child Support Lawyers

2018-01-08T09:18:10.020-08:00

For people who are unable to pay child support, there may be diverse issues to consider. As a Child Support Lawyer, I’ve noticed that sometimes, people refuse to pay child support, which can lead to harsh consequences such as time behind bars and fines. In Salt Lake City, and all over Utah, those who are unhappy about their child support obligations may want to look into modifying their child support order or other solutions. On the other hand, some people simply cannot afford to make their child support payments as they are supposed to. Regardless of the reasons why parents fall behind, the consequences for everyone involved can be staggering.AUTHORITIES APPREHEND DOZENS OVER BACK CHILD SUPPORTAuthorities in New Jersey recently took 31 people into custody as a result of back child support. According to law enforcement officials, the sweep was carried out to serve as a reminder of how crucial it is for parents to satisfy their child support obligations. Officials also hope that the operation, which took place in Somerset County, will spur more parents to start paying what they owe. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>In all, the parents who were taken into custody had over $433,000 worth of unpaid child support. During the sweep, authorities were also able to take in more than $7,000 worth of payments for back child support. Officials had warrants to apprehend the 31 men and women over the course of the three-day sweep.Falling behind on child support can lead to an incredible amount of anxiety and make life tough for those responsible for making payments as well as parents who are supposed to receive child support. For people struggling with these types of challenges, reaching out to an attorney could help.SPECIAL NEEDS ACCOMMODATIONS IN CHILD CUSTODY AGREEMENTSFor families entering the divorce process, it’s incredibly important to ensure that the safety and well-being of children is accounted for. Ensuring that kids remain healthy and happy along the way can be complicated in many cases, however, when parents must also manage special needs. Fortunately for families throughout Salt Lake City, Utah, and beyond, social and legal resources are in place to identify and meet the needs of children with special needs when making child custody arrangements and other related decisions.April is Autism Awareness Month and so it is a good time to acknowledge the needs of and resources for families with children that have autism spectrum disorders (ASD). When considering divorce, it’s important for parents with children that have ASD to recognize that their kids may be confronted with a number of changes to their routine and lifestyle. In order to make the divorce transition as easy as possible on kids with special needs, parents are advised to seek the advice and support of an experienced family law attorney. Not only will the attorney help to develop a child custody agreement that fully accounts for the needs of the child but they can also incorporate the advice and feedback of a family therapist familiar with the family’s specific needs and requests.Beyond that, a family law attorney can help families account for the current and future financial needs of the child with ASD by creating a special needs trust. Establishing a trust to cover future expenses relating to everything from the child’s education to housing to healthcare costs goes beyond standard child support [...]



Paternity Lawyers in Utah

2018-01-08T09:18:09.335-08:00

While most people living in Utah and other places around the country may assume that identifying paternity plays a large role in resolving many family law issues, that’s not always the case. Legislation concerning child custody can vary from state to state, and sometimes standards do not always reflect current issues. One recent case illustrates how previously established laws affect modern cases, and highlights the complicated role paternity plays in some custody disputes.PATERNITY NOT A FACTOR IN SOME CHILD CUSTODY DISPUTESThe case in question took place in Michigan, and revolves around the issue of parental versus paternity rights. In 1956, it was established that a man didn’t necessarily have to be the biological father of a child to be responsible for that child in Michigan. As long as the man was married to the child’s mother, he was granted parental rights. That ruling, while meant to safeguard the rights of men at the time, now stands in the way of one man seeking custody of his biological child. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>The Michigan appeals court that has most recently ruled on the man’s case concedes that the law does not support his paternity claims even though it acknowledges that the plaintiff is doing the right thing by attempting to be with his child. According to the court, because the child’s mother was married at the time she and the plaintiff had a baby together two years ago, the plaintiff’ s paternity does not determine parental rights. The law dictates that the woman’s husband be recognized as the child’s legal parent.WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ESTABLISHING PATERNITYFrom child support to the costs associated with raising a child, parents may encounter a number of challenges, especially if they are going through a divorce or recently separated from the father or mother of their child. However, establishing paternity can be vital and it is important to understand the benefits of paternity establishment for parents and children in Salt Lake City, and across Utah.The State of Utah offers an online portal known as Paternity Matters for people who have questions related to paternity. According to the site, establishing paternity provides a variety of advantages. First of all, children cannot access any of their biological father’s benefits (Social Security, inheritance, veteran’s benefits, etc.) unless paternity has been established. Also, paternity establishment can help children receive the financial support that they require as well as medical insurance they need.Establishing paternity also provides children with a better understanding of their family health history and provides biological fathers with the ability to pursue certain legal rights such as child custody, visitation and the ability to make decisions concerning their child. Furthermore, if a child’s father was born in another country, the father’s country of origin may provide a child with rights once paternity has been established. Whether you are a father who wishes to gain access to legal rights regarding your child or a mother who has realized the benefits associated with paternity establishment, handling the process of establishing paternity properly is paramount.CAN I GET CREDIT FOR IN-KIND SUPPORT PAYMENTS?If you are a parent who owes child support, it is important to understand both your rights and your re[...]

I tell people that a divorce can pose significant personal and financial challenges for you and your family because I am a divorce lawyer and I’ve seen it over and over again. Before finalizing a divorce, it is important to protect your rights and have a clear financial picture. Overspending after divorce and failing to appreciate a divided income can create future financial problems.FINANCIAL PREPARATION BEFORE DIVORCEDivorce will often lead to drastic lifestyle changes for any family. Sole providers may become responsible for child support and alimony. Dependent spouses may be forced to get a job to make ends meet. If you are facing divorce in Salt Lake City, Utah, here are some financial planning tips to help you prepare for a divorce:Pay attention to accounts. If you are considering divorce, you should start paying attention to any shared accounts. You should know what your assets are and if you don’t know, consult with an expert who can identify them.Examine financial records. One way to get a clear financial picture is to look at tax returns and monthly bills. Knowing your income versus expenditures now will help you prepare for the future.Set aside emergency cash. You should always have money saved in the event that you lose access to accounts or face unexpected expenses.Don’t wait to take action and to gain control of your finances before during, and after divorce. Divorce is already a stressful time, so you should take advantage of every opportunity to protect your personal financial interests, seeking professional help when necessary. In addition to legal professionals who can help you negotiate a favorable divorce settlement, you should also consider the benefits of financial planning before divorce. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>WHAT ARE SOME DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEDIATION AND LITIGATION?If you are trying to figure out the best path forward with regard to divorce, it is crucial to carefully consider every option. Depending on your circumstances, you may have to head to trial or you could be able to resolve issues you have with your spouse through a mediator. If you live in Salt Lake City, or any community in Utah, it is important to have an idea of how mediation, litigation, and other divorce options differ.When it comes to mediation and litigation, there are a number of key differences, according to the Utah State Courts. With mediation, couples can take advantage of a divorce process that is more private, less formal and makes it easier for them to work together. On the other hand, litigation involves a trial and may be more costly. Furthermore, litigation can take longer and couples may have a harder time collaborating. If you are concerned about keeping the details of your divorce private, mediation may be preferable.That said, you and your spouse may not be able to agree on some matters when working with a mediator. When this occurs, your case will simply head back to litigation. Both you and your spouse have the option to withdraw from mediation at any point and the mediator may even decide to halt mediation if he or she believes that it will not work out.This post was compiled to help provide you with an understanding of divorce mediation and is not to be taken as legal advice.Free Consultation with Divorce LawyerIf[...]

There’s a reason so many professional and college athletes have been sporting pink shoes, undershirts and sweatbands during the month of October—it’s breast cancer awareness month. As an Injury Lawyer, I thought it would be appropriate to share information about this important cause.Though our overall contribution to the hunt for a long-lasting cure for the disease is minimal, seeing as how breast cancer’s survival rate is nearly 100 percent when quickly detected, we feel it necessary to offer up a few tips for the early detection of breast cancer.BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH AND THE DISEASE’S MOST COMMON SIGNS AND SYMPTOMSMore often than not, people who have breast cancer—beforehand, at least—experience anywhere between one or two of breast cancer’s most common symptoms. Needless to say, whenever a sign or symptom is discovered, a healthcare professional should immediately be contacted so as to properly identify the validity of any concerns.The following are the most common of breast cancer indications:Uncommon nipple tenderness, swelling or even inversionNipple discharge when breastfeeding isn’t taking placeRoughened skin and enlarged poresLumps on the breastsThe best way to discover any of the aforementioned dangers is through routine, monthly self-breast examinations. If something seems out of the ordinary, make it a point to speak with an experienced medical doctor. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/PPj20gSRyag?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>WHEN INJURY DOESN’T APPEAR UNTIL AFTER AN ACCIDENTIt’s not uncommon to experience a delayed injury after car accidents. Many people, both here in Utah and elsewhere, find that they feel pain or discomfort a few days after an auto incident. Primarily, this happens because the body has stopped producing pain-masking endorphins. In this sort of situation, knowing what to do with an insurance or personal injury claim can be difficult.First, there are many different kinds of injuries that may appear a short time later. These include injuries such as difficulty moving, headaches, dizziness, muscle spasms, numbness and concussions.By far, concussions and whiplash are the most common injuries caused by auto accidents. A concussion, for example, can present itself in a number of ways. The key characteristic, however, is always the loss or impairment of a basic brain function. This can manifest itself in loss of balance, ringing ears, vomiting, disorientation, confusion or even irritability. Furthermore, the possibility of emotional harm is also present.As previously mentioned, filing a claim under these circumstances can be tricky. In fact, some insurance companies will ask those who file a claim to sign a settlement. If this settlement is signed, then those hoping to file for medical cost coverage afterwards will find themselves out of luck.Truthfully, people both inside and outside of Utah should be sure to consult with a personal injury attorney before making any decisions in order to ensure that the entire legal process runs smoothly.DO NEW MAMMOGRAM GUIDELINES PUT YOU AT RISK?From time to time, a wrongful death lawyer in West Jordan, Utah or elsewhere faces lawsuits against doctors who have been negligent in their patient care. Most often, doctors will misdiagnose someone or fail to diagnose when symptoms present the[...]

Divorce Attorney Near Me

2018-01-03T02:30:31.945-08:00

The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time often filled with strong emotions. When dealing with the particulars of divorce, many couples in Utah are increasingly choosing collaborative law, a process that determines a settlement without the need for litigation, as discussed in a previous blog post. For it to work, both parties must be able to keep their feelings from getting the best of them. I know as a divorce attorney that whenever the couple is able to resolve differences without court intervention, the divorce process goes more smooth.Finding healthy coping mechanisms is important to preventing negative emotions from playing too significant a role in divorce proceedings, according to MentalHelp.net. So, it is beneficial for individuals to find healthy ways to support themselves during a divorce by keeping a journal, taking up new hobbies, exploring relaxation techniques and similar activities. Another essential step to help cope is to gain control over other stressors through prioritizing and organizing tasks.DEALING WITH EMOTIONS DURING DIVORCEAccording to Psych Central, it is important to avoid acting on intense emotions as much as possible during divorce proceedings. Doing so might lead to destructive consequences and disrupt the process. Instead, a person may take a moment away to overcome the emotion before going back to tackle a particular item. One way to do this is to learn to recognize certain emotions and associated behavior patterns as they arise. This provides a certain amount of control over them so that they are no longer the driving force of the actions. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/diovUI6IQtc?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>It might take time to achieve this level of control. Finding a safe place to explore feelings and emotions, such as therapy or conversations with a trusted loved one or counselor, provides space to explore feelings and learn to control the conduct.WHAT HAPPENS IF THE CUSTODIAL PARENT RECEIVES STATE ASSISTANCE?If you are required to pay child support, a number of circumstances may arise which make you unsure of what to do next. For example, if your income changes significantly, you may have questions concerning the modification of your child support order. Or, if you are a non-custodial parent in Salt Lake City, Sandy, South Jordan or anywhere in Utah and your child’s other parent recently started to receive assistance from the State of Utah, you may be wondering how this could affect your child support obligations. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/fSt7dj7HHz4?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>According to the Office of Recovery Services, families who receive public assistance are also given child support services from the state. As a result, if you owe child support to a family receiving assistance, you are required to make payments to the state. If you fail to make the necessary payments to the state of Utah, the amount you owe will accumulate and be considered a debt which must be repaid.If you are unsure of whether or not your child’s custodial parent receives [...]



Divorce Attorney Lehi Utah

As our work and personal lives become more intertwined, it is not surprising that one can impact the other. Any disruptions at home can mean distraction and disrupted productivity in the office. As businesses become more aware of the relationship between “work” and “life,” some experts are acknowledging the deep and broad impact of divorce at the individual and corporate level. As a divorce lawyer who has seen too many divorces to count, we know how this works. Some advocates are working towards a business-model reform that would help employees transition through divorce in Lehi, Utah and nationwide.Anyone who has been through a divorce knows that in addition to personal struggles, professional work product and performance can also suffer. Dividing property, working out custody arrangements and untangling life from spouse can be stressful, expensive, and overwhelming. In addition to the practical aspects of ending a marriage, there is also the emotional toll it can take on the couple and their children.DIVORCE, WORK PRODUCTIVITY AND EMPLOYER RESOURCESIn a high-conflict divorce, these problems can be exacerbated. Not surprisingly, the stress and personal conflict associated with divorce can spill over into work life. According to studies, divorcing employees work more slowly and make more mistakes. In some instances they may project anger towards colleagues and customers. Marital problems can also lead to absences, tardiness, on-the-job injury and reduced productivity. class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/fSt7dj7HHz4?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'>New reform would offer support from employers, including counseling, education and legal services. Supporters ask that businesses become more involved on behalf of their divorcing employees to help reduce conflict and streamline the divorce process. In addition to helping their employees, businesses would benefit from increased productivity, help reduce conflict between parties, and give employees structured support.An employer’s support and involvement with a divorce could ease the financial and personal pressures associated with separation, divorce, custody, and property issues. Both employers and employees would benefit from a reform that could help address legal issues, minimize conflict and help divorcing employees get back to work.DIVIDING INSURANCE WITH SHARED CUSTODYAfter a divorce, parents must determine financial responsibilities for children of shared custody. While you may have come to a settlement regarding assets, debts and property, you will likely have ongoing issues regarding costs, including insurance coverage. Arranging health insurance for children after a divorce may not be too complicated; however, you will also have to come to an agreement about other forms of insurance, including car insurance, homeowners’ insurance and life insurance.Usually when establishing health care for children, one parent will be obligated or will be in a better position to provide insurance through employment. The responsibility typically falls to the parent who has provided insurance during the marriage. Even though the coverage may be provided through one parent, it is usually the case that parents will split the costs 50-50. This can become more com[...]
