Professional Services Provided
Professional services currently provided by Utah Parent Services include the following:
SPECIAL MASTER SERVICES
A Special Master is a private judge appointed by the Court to resolve disputes between the parties outside of the Courtroom. The goal of a Special Master’s involvement is timely cost-effective dispute resolution, as opposed to expensive and time-consuming litigation.
PARENT-TIME COORDINATION SERVICES
A Parent-Time Coordinator is appointed by the Court to ensure the parent-time provisions contained in a Temporary Order, Parenting Plan, Divorce Decree or a final Child Custody Order are implemented as ordered by the Court.
DIVORCE MEDIATION SERVICES
Mediation is a process where parents (and their attorneys) meet with a mutually selected neutral person who assists them in the negotiation of their differences.
CHILD CUSTODY MEDIATION SERVICES
Child custody mediation gives parents a chance to resolve disagreements about a parenting plan for their children. In mediation, the parents have the help of an expert (a mediator) in resolving these disagreements.
DIVORCE ARBITRATION SERVICES
Divorce Arbitration is a type of divorce trial, but instead of couples resolving their dispute in a public courtroom, their case is heard in a private setting before an Arbitrator.
CHILD CUSTODY ARBITRATION SERVICES
Arbitration is a process by which the parties can resolve temporary and permanent custody and parenting time issues through motions and, ultimately if necessary, tried with a neutral third party fact-finder known as an arbitrator.
EXPERT WITNESS SERVICES
An Expert Witness is an individual with specialized knowledge, skill, experience, training and education; and whose testimony will assist the Judge or jury in understanding the evidence and/or in determining facts which are in dispute.
BUSINESS VALUATION SERVICES (DIVORCE MATTERS)
Often, the divorcing couple will disagree over the value of the company, requiring a business appraiser to provide his or her expert opinion to help the court come to a conclusion of value.
