How Can Schmidt Law Help You?

The attorneys at Schmidt Law Firm know that family and divorce law can be a sensitive and an especially emotional time. While taking that into account, you can expect nothing but honesty and compassion from our team of professionals while they work with your family on your case. 

Our expertise ranges from all realms of family and divorce law, making sure we are thorough and firm in our discoveries. With specialized expertise in family and divorce law, find out how Schmidt Law can help you navigate through any of these lengthy and emotional processes. 

Child Support

Child support is a court-ordered monthly payment that the noncustodial parent must pay to the primary parent. If you are expecting a child support hearing, it’s helpful to know that a judge will base the monthly payment according to both parents’ income and expenses. Child support is intended to help cover the cost of necessities for the parents’ children, such as: 

  • Clothing
  • Food
  • Daycare
  • Health insurance
  • Medical expenses
  • Extracurriculars like camp, lessons, activities

In some cases, the noncustodial parent may request to make a payment modification. A payment modification is a lengthy process that requires a lot of paperwork, which is why it’s best to have a divorce and family law attorney in your corner to help you navigate this procedure. 

Custody Disputes

Custody disputes between parents are one of the most common cases that we see at Schmidt Law. Certain types of disputes happen when parents can’t agree on whom the child should live with primarily. 

When parents can’t agree, a judge will decide for them. Furthermore, the judge will intend to determine the child’s best interests, which means basing it on several factors, such as: 

  • Each parent’s relationship with the child
  • The child’s emotional and physical needs
  • Each parent’s financial situations
  • The parents’ ability to provide a safe and stable environment
  • How the child gets along with siblings
  • The child’s wishes if they are of age 

Additionally, some types of disputes you might face would be concerning physical, legal, joint legal, and joint physical custody. If you are facing a custody dispute with your spouse, our team of experienced lawyers can help you.  


Adoption is an important and special time for everybody involved, but there are several parties to consider, like the adoptee, adopters, and biological parents. The process is also very lengthy, and requires a lot of patience and paperwork.

Although the adoption agency will help guide you and your family during the adoption process, it’s essential to keep in mind that there is always room for unintentional error. Since adoption laws vary by state, having an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the adoption laws in Utah will help you avoid any unnecessary missteps.


Divorce is not something anybody wants to experience, but it doesn’t have to be a complicated experience. One of the experienced attorneys at Schmidt Law Firm can help you navigate through the division of property, alimony awards, child custody, and child support while representing your case firmly and honestly. 


Did you know that Utah law requires all divorcing parents to attend mediation? Mediation is often the preferred alternative to litigation, which is why Schmidt Law also often recommends this type of intervention for couples without children. 

During mediation, an unbiased third-party sits with the couple to discuss solutions and reach agreements to their issues that are typically faced in the event of a divorce. If you are searching for a mediator, all of the attorneys at Schmidt Law are licensed and trained mediators that can help you navigate through the divorce process.
