An overview of the family law services we provide

Day Shell & Liljenquist, L.C. facilitates the divorce process for couples throughout Utah, whether the divorce is contested or uncontested. Uncontested divorces are less costly and quicker, but the couple must agree to all the terms of their divorce, including spousal support. Uncontested divorces are common in:

  • A relatively short marriage
  • A marriage with little accumulation of asset and liabilities
  • A marriage governed by an enforceable prenuptial or postnuptial agreement
  • Marriages with no children

Day Shell & Liljenquist, L.C. assists parents in the initial custody determination or when modifying an existing custody order. We also help you pursue a child support or visitation order or enforce an existing order.
