Helping You Take Action

At the office of David R. Hartwig, Esq. in Salt Lake City, Utah, I help clients throughout the state and country with enforcing all types of court orders, including orders for:

  • Child support
  • Custody modification
  • Visitation
  • Production of documents
  • Transfers of property

How I Can Help You

I can represent you at any required hearings and make the most powerful possible argument on your behalf should any disputes arise.

  • If you are owed delinquent child or spousal support payments or any other court-ordered payments, the office of David R. Hartwig, Esq. is available to help you petition the court for enforcement of a previous court order. If your request meets the criteria, the court can order wage garnishments, attach certain properties to satisfy the back payments, or hold the other party in contempt.
  • If you are facing an alimony or child support enforcement order and you don’t have the money to make your payments, my legal services are available to help you defend against an enforcement action. When there are substantial changes in your financial situation, you may be able to request a modification to the court decree. According to the law, if you have experienced “a material change in circumstances” since the order was put in place, you may petition the court to change the terms of the order. Factors like losing your job or taking a significant pay cut are often reasons for seeking a modification. Contact me for assistance with divorce and family law order enforcement in Utah

I am David R. Hartwig, Esq., a Salt Lake City attorney with extensive experience helping parents resolve simple or high-conflict custody issues reaching arrangements that work for children and parents. Child custody involves parent-time and visitation schedules, and can affect support. I help in all of these areas, providing comprehensive service clients need to achieve their custody goals.

Factors In Child Custody Decisions

As an experienced Utah child custody lawyer, I understand that custody cases may become a contentious issue even years after an order is finalized. The trend in Utah toward joint custody often creates messy, unworkable situations, which ultimately lead to enforcement issues when parents do not abide by their custody orders.

The best interests of the child must be considered, including:

• Whether joint legal or physical custody will benefit the child’s physical, psychological and emotional needs, or the child’s development

• The parents’ ability to give first priority to the child’s welfare, and reach shared decisions in the child’s best interest

• Whether each parent is capable of encouraging and accepting a positive relationship between the child and the other parent

• Whether both parents participated in raising the child before the divorce

• The distance between the parents’ homes

• The parents’ maturity and their willingness and ability to protect the child from conflict that may arise between the parents

• The parents’ ability to cooperate with each other and make decisions jointly

• Any history of, or potential for, child abuse, spouse abuse, or kidnapping

• Any other factors the court finds relevant

Despite the complicated and sensitive nature of custody matters, I have helped many clients successfully establish custody orders.
