Spousal and Child Support
Utah’s standard child support guidelines are applied to nearly every divorce case in the state. However, under special circumstances, there may be an exception. When calculating child support obligations, both parents’ gross incomes and child-related expenses are taken into consideration. Child support payments continue until the child reaches age 18 or has completed high school (whichever occurs last), and, in some cases, may extend through secondary education.
These guidelines are presumed to be correct unless it is shown that the amount would be unjust or inappropriate under the particular circumstances of the case.
Factors that may be considered for an outside-the-standard award include:
- The living situation of both parties
- The income and relative wealth of both parties
- Earning abilities of both parents
- Special needs of any parents of children
- Ages of parents and children
- The responsibility that the parents may have to support others

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Utah-based company. So that's why I used UtahOnlineDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.
Thinking about all that paperwork thing I was preparing for the worst. Fortunately, we agreed on an online divorce! The site was easy to use and we got our completed divorce papers really quickly. We didn't have any problems with the court as well.
It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found Utahonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
Got a first class service for a low price. Everything was ready on time, and the court approved the papers without questions. Thanks for the help!
