A mediator could help you to settle your divorce faster

Divorce is often listed as one of the most stressful events that can happen in a person’s lifetime. There are many changes to be made when a divorce happens. These decisions affect the division of the shared personal Utah property and assets, as well as visitation, custody and child support agreements if there are children involved. It can be difficult to make these choices, which is when having a mediator can be very helpful.

How courts determine parents’ income for child support

Utah courts follow a specific formula when calculating child support. This formula is based in part on the parents’ gross incomes. Sometimes the parents’ incomes are straightforward, such as when a parent works 40 hours per week for a set salary. When a parent has a second job, earns overtime, or has additional sources of funding, determining that parent’s income can be more complicated. Utah law provides guidelines to help courts determine income for purposes of calculating child support.

Do you have doubts that you are the father?

Every year in Utah, many men are stuck paying child support for a child that is not their own. This is a fear for some singles and, if you truly do not believe that you are the father of a child, you should speak up and make your claim to legal authorities. If you are cooperative with the system, your name can be cleared and you will not have to pay child support.
