Making the Most of Your Time with Child Custody Arrangements

Most Utah parents may agree that surviving a divorce with your wits still intact can be a miracle in itself. The real test of one’s fortitude is surviving a divorce with children and remaining amicable. The real trick is making the time any non-custodial parent has in a child custody agreement good quality time.

The marriage or relationship has ended but the feelings of being torn apart from the children can be hard to bear. The question becomes how to spend as much time as possible with the kids without crossing the line by interfering with the custodial parent’s time or becoming just a weekend parent. It is a fine line, but the children are worth it. Ways to keep close and make a difference in a child’s life can be easier than one may think.

The simple tasks may seem trivial but may make all the difference to your child. For instance, helping with the daily morning rituals like making lunches or driving them to school may not seem like much, but it shows the children they are loved. Making a lunch date or helping with their homework or even picking them up from school can mean so much to a child. This shows the children that parents can put their needs first and not use them an opportunity to argue or plead their position. It could also alleviate some of the stress for the other parent.

The first step in trying to stay in the child’s life is to be there. Utah parents know how difficult it may be to put aside the emotions that come from a divorce to work together when negotiating a child custody agreement. The parties have the opportunity to establish time for each parent to do the little things that could make a difference as the children grow.

Based on 803 reviews
Overall from start to finish the best experience to have dealing with a time that is difficult.Andrew Christensen is very professional and out going to make this situation the best it could be and worked hard to make sure the divorce was fair for me.Over all, this firm really cares and treats you as a family or friend and just not a client, down to Marco Brown taking time to see how I was doing and offer to help in any way possible during my divorce while I was there for my first initial meeting.I would highly recommend anyone that has to go through a divorce to really reach out to the Brown Family Law firm and see for your self the experience I was able to receive from a top notch law firm.
Response from the owner: Devin, thank you for the kind words. Andrew appreciated the opportunity to help you with your situation.
Sophie was very helpful and explains the process and fees. Thank you!
Response from the owner: Corey, thank you for the kind words. Glad we could help.
My attorney Amy Pomeroy and assistant Melanie and Dani are awesome! It’s an easy case but due to the opposite party was failed to respond, the process went much longer than we expect. During the process Amy gets the necessary job done as quick as she can. The assistants made the most documentation jobs done in a reasonable time. I will get phone call or message to communicate for the status, what’s the next step, what should I expect. In the end, it’s a huge win. So I definitely recommend Brown Family Law. They are professional and handle the case very well.
Response from the owner: Yue, thank you for the kind words. Glad Amy was able to help you so well.
Dani always kept me updated and has great communication skills.

Dani was extremely helpful and always responsive.

My experience with Brown Family Law is a positive one. I highly recommend them. This firm has very good communication with their clients. Attorney Paul Waldron represents me and I’m very happy with the experience. My questions and concerns are always answered quickly and respectfully. I’m grateful to have Mr. Waldron and Brown Family Law in my corner during this difficult time for my family.
Response from the owner: Jodie, glad we were able to communicate with you so effectively and quickly. Thank you for your kind words.
I recently used Clay in a divorce case and could not have been happier. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel like I was his only client. The process was easy and he was always there to reassure me or help me with decisions. I would highly recommend Brown Family Law.
Response from the owner: Thank you, Mendi.
Dani excelled as a paralegal, providing crucial support with exceptional skills!

I highly recommend Nathaniel and his team. They listened to me, navigated me, educated me, and always called when they said they would. Going through a divorce was very hard but they helped me get through it and showed compassion the whole time.
