Salt Lake City Fathers Rights

In this tumultuous economic environment, unemployment and significant income reduction is an unfortunate reality for dads in Salt Lake City.

The Utah Family Code states if the child support payer’s income has changed at least 30 percent and the payer’s employment potential and ability to earn income have changed, the payer can petition the court for a modification of child support. With men representing more than 87 percent of child support payers, this statute directly affects dads’ rights in Salt Lake City.

This modification must be obtained as soon as possible following the income drop in order to avoid facing accruing arrears and interest charges. A father’s rights in Salt Lake City cannot be protected until a petition is filed alerting the court to the financial change of circumstances.

If you are a dad struggling keep up with child support payments, ensure your rights as a father are protected and do not wait to file for a child support modification.
