How Can Schmidt Law Help You?

Dealing with cases in the court of law is always stressful, but we know that family law and divorce law can be especially sensitive. The good news is that we can be at your side to help navigate through the various processes of family and divorce law. Learn more about how Schmidt Law can help you today.

Child Support

Child support is a court-ordered monthly payment that the noncustodial parent must make to the primary caregiver for their children. These payments are intended to help the custodial parent support the children’s needs, such as: 

  • Basic necessities
  • Medical care
  • Education and childcare costs
  • Transportation
  • Entertainment

It’s essential to agree on the amount the noncustodial parent can afford to pay. This amount is usually decided by a judge and is based on both parents’ income and expenses. However, if a parent refuses to pay, they could face several types of fines, as well as jail time. 

There is also an option for the noncustodial parent to request a payment modification. Payment modifications can be a lengthy endeavor that requires a lot of paperwork, but the team at Schmidt Law has the right expertise to help you make this type of request. 

Custody Disputes

Custody disputes occur when both parties cannot agree on the living arrangements for their children. One of the most common examples we see at Schmidt Law Firm are disagreements on who should be the primary and noncustodial caregiver. 

At Schmidt Law Firm, we have unique expertise in all types of custody arrangements, such as: 

  • Legal Custody
  • Physical Custody
  • Sole Custody
  • Joint Legal Custody
  • Joint Physical Custody
  • Parent-Time Enforcement

If you are struggling with a custody dispute, then our team at Schmidt Law can help your family through this process. 


Adoption is a special yet complicated process. Since adoption laws in the United States vary from state to state, it’s best to become familiar with basic knowledge when adopting, like: 

  • How long the process takes
  • Who is eligible to adopt
  • What the adoption process entails

If you are planning to adopt, the experienced professionals at Schmidt Law will help you navigate through the necessary processes. This way, you can avoid any missteps or errors that the adoption service might have overlooked. 


No matter the reason, divorce is an emotional and stressful time for both parties. Schmidt Law Firm approaches these cases with attentive care to ensure you are guided through complex processes such as: 

  • Division of property
  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Prenups agreements
  • Custody disputes

Our attorneys are experienced in divorce law, which is why we also offer mediation as a more civil option. 


Mediation is an excellent alternative to litigation. During mediation, an unbiased third-party will sit down with you and your spouse to help resolve any issues you may have. The attorneys at Schmidt Law Firm are all experienced mediators and can help navigate you and your spouse through this process.

It’s important to note that the state of Utah requires couples with children to attend mediation, although Schmidt Law Firm recommends this route for anybody. It is a civil, more thought-out process that allows both parties to speak and get treated fairly without the involvement of lawyers.
