The filing fee for a child custody case in Utah is $360.
There are also costs associated with service. See, once you file your initial custody documents with the Court, you have to have someone serve your soon-to-be ex with those documents. The Utah Rules of Civil Procedure specify you can’t do that personally (too much room for monkey business), so you should have a professional process server do it. That might be a constable with the sheriff’s office, or a company that serves these sort of documents regularly. Either way, the cost will likely range from $15 to $30.
All told, the cost to file and serve a custody case averages around $400.
