    How We Handle Family Law Cases: Our Process

    Step 1


    All family law matters at Henriksen Law start with a consultation. We’ll discuss your needs, goals, and challenges to develop a strategy to reach a beneficial resolution.

    Step 2


    Once we have all the details, a family law attorney from Henriksen Law will begin developing the legal strategy from A to Z.

    Step 3

    File Petition

    Family law processes in Utah officially begin when you file a petition – which outline the terms and grounds for divorce or any other family law matter. We manage this for you in accordance with the state’s law.

    Step 4

    Serve Other Party

    Utah family law provides a 21-day period for the party being served to answer the petition. This answer can either agree or dispute the claims made.

    Step 5

    Create Temporary Orders

    Both parties may request temporary orders from the courts while the case is in progress. These commonly involve child custody terms, alimony, and asset possession.

    Step 6


    The discovery phase involves both parties exchanging documentation regarding the terms of the case. This process may include requesting certain documentation or depositions in front of a court reporter.

    Step 7


    Family law in Utah requires both parties to participate in mediation – in which a neutral third party (mediator) works to resolve issues without going to court. We’ll help you manage this process to protect your best interests.

    Step 8


    Most family law cases are resolved outside of court. Our goal is to help you achieve a fair resolution and avoid all the challenges (and expenses) of trial.

    Step 9

    Trial (If Applicable)

    If a resolution cannot be reached, we’ll help you navigate the court system and negotiations to fight for your rights.

    Step 10

    Final Orders

    When a family law case concludes – either outside of court or in trial – the Utah court will issue a final order, legally resolving the case.

    Step 11


    If you choose to modify the court’s order or believe there was a legal mistake, you may file a motion or appeal the decision. Our family law attorneys are here to help you manage this process.
