Helping Orem Parents With Child Support Guidance
Raising a child is expensive. In Utah, parents have a duty to financially support their children until age 18. Serving those in Orem and surrounding areas, Featherstone Family Law helps parents obtain fair child support orders that ensure children get the financial resources they deserve.
Fair Child Support Orders
In Utah, child support is determined by a formula. Under state guidelines, the amount of support a parent is obligated to pay is based off of the following:
- Both parents’ income
- The number of children being supported
- The number of overnights children spend with each parent
- The number of children in each parent’s household, including those that are not part of the support action
When children are born outside of marriage, paternity must be established before child support obligations can be determined. At Featherstone Family Law, we help clients establish legal paternity so they can collect the support they need to raise their children.
In addition to helping clients obtain fair support orders, our attorneys also assist with support modifications, help clients with child support enforcement and assist with step-parent adoption.
