Parsons Behle & Latimer’s family law attorneys have years of experience assisting people, including professionals and business owners, to navigate the complex issues that arise during a divorce. We make it a priority to be up to date on the ever-changing landscape of divorce so we can best represent our clients.

We pride ourselves on our expertise in alimony and child support analysis and calculation. With this knowledge, we can ensure that our clients understand those calculations and either pay or receive any funds to which they and their families are legally entitled.

We are experienced in litigating the legal updates surrounding the validity of a marriage not solemnized (“common law marriage”) and are well-versed in that complicated niche field.

High Wealth Matters, Complex Business and Property Division, and Prenuptial Agreements

The family law attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer handle complex business, property and estate divisions. We work hand-in-hand with our skilled business and corporate attorneys and our estate planning attorneys to ensure that all of our clients’ needs that arise during divorce—whether it be dissolution of a business or amending estate documents—are met efficiently and effectively.

Child Custody and Support

Custody and parent time are sensitive and highly important issues during a divorce, which the family law attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer do not take lightly. We consistently advocate for the best interests of our clients and their children throughout the divorce process and beyond.

Additionally, our team has hands-on experience – some clerking for the Utah Supreme Court and some litigating in our state district courts – on the issue of the presumption of paternity for children born within a marriage when the child's father is not the husband. This is an evolving area of law that we are consistently monitoring and can best represent families who have found themselves in this situation.


Parsons Behle & Latimer’s family law team has expertise in navigating adoptions, whether private, stepparent or initiated by the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS), and we can assist your changing family in navigating this process.

Juvenile Court and Division of Child and Family Services

Parsons Behle & Latimer has attorneys who specialize in the complex world of Juvenile Court throughout the State of Utah, including Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) substantiation cases, termination of parental rights, DCFS removals, kinship placements, foster parent representation, concerns or allegations of abuse and neglect and petitions for permanent custody and guardianship. The children in your life are your highest priority! We will make them ours as well.
