Fathers' Rights

It has become more and more difficult for many divorced fathers to receive and maintain a fair deal governing alimony and/or custody of a child in Utah family courts. At Atticus Legal Group, LLC, we ensure you will receive excellent representation, presenting your best arguments, when going through this tricky divorce.

Are you a divorced father in Salt Lake City who is being denied your custody or visitation rights? Are you an unmarried father who wants to become closer to your child and are willing to establish paternity and pay child support to accomplish that goal?

Our skilled, experienced family law firm works hard to protect fathers' rights in a wide variety of matters. We are Atticus Legal Group, LLC — the last attorneys you will ever need.

The process to protect your rights is often accomplished through mediation. It is important in the mediation process to have a skilled attorney to protect your interests, who understands the law, who has in court experience, and can provide a reasonable view of potential outcomes if you were to proceed to trial. Our attorneys have good working relationships with many mediators throughout the State of Utah, and will help to select a mediator that is best suited for your specific facts.

If mediation is not successful, our attorneys have extensive in court experience to assist fathers to establish custody and parent time arrangements on a temporary or permanent basis. Obtaining an order from the court allows both parties to rely on the same document, such that all parties will comply with parent time schedules, custody arrangements and child support. This allows the parties to then focus on co-parenting their child, and attend to their child’s best interests.

Protecting Custody Rights For Fathers In Salt Lake City

As a divorced father, you also have the right to request or contest a modification to your divorce settlement agreement, petition the court for a parental relocation in the event of remarriage or business transfer, and seek adjustments to spousal support and child support if you have lost your job or been seriously injured, requiring hospitalization and taking you away from your job and income.

Is your former spouse refusing you parent-time? Or refusing to include you in decisions for your child? Your rights as a father do not end once an order is signed by the judge. Our attorneys have experience in helping you enforce your existing order and your rights as a father.

As for unwed fathers' rights, you should speak with one of our compassionate lawyers about paternity testing, child support calculations and all parenting time considerations.

Many decisions in divorce are difficult, the attorney you hire to help can make those other decisions easier and can save you time, money, and can let you focus on the most important things in your life.
