Cordell & Cordell Custodial Interference Case Featured in Utah

fathers-rights-utahCordell & Cordell Utah attorney Jonathan Winn and his client Matthew Brown were interviewed on the epidemic of custodial interference in Utah, which has seen cases in the state nearly triple over the past 10 years, according to an investigative report by KSL News in Salt Lake City.

Utah law states that if a parent intentionally withholds a child from the other parent who is entitled visitation, they’ve committed a crime. But Mr. Brown, a Cordell & Cordell client who was the victim of custodial interference, told KSL News that he believes the law is rarely enforced against women.

“There’s nothing I’ve been through that’s harder than this,” he said.

Mr. Winn, who has been defending fathers’ rights in Utah for years, believes dads are the underdogs of the family court system.

“The many crimes that are out there, this is a crime against children which should be enforced by the courts,” Mr. Winn told KSL News.

Mr. Brown came to Cordell & Cordell with issues of receiving his parenting time. Due to the constant interference with custody, Mr. Winn filed a successful Petition to Modify Custody with Mr. Brown receiving full custody of his children, in addition to an award of attorney fees.
