Summary

I am a sole practitioner who answers her own phone and makes her own appointments. If you hire me, you will always be working with me, not an associate or paralegal. My primary concern is providing the information you need to make important decisions -- call anytime for a free consultation and never sign anything without reading it carefully, first! I am licensed in Utah, Idaho, New York and California. With the exception of California, I have lived and practiced law in each of these jurisdictions.

Q. I have a custody agreement based off code ann 30-3-37, we now live within 150 miles how does this affect our agreement
A: I don't know why you think 30-3-35 was "voided" unless you entered into a completely new agreement upon relocation. Ordinarily, your decree still controls parent time but the schedule and transportation costs would revert back to the 30-3-35 if the relocation statute no longer applies. I would notify the other parent that in light of your relocation back to within 150 miles, you plan to exercise the parent time schedule identified in 30-3-35; if there is resistance, your decree may require mediation to resolve the dispute (which I recommend anyway). If this fails, you may need to file a Petition to Modify which is justified by this substantial change in circumstances.
Q. The heat in my apartment bldg. has not worked since Oct. 2016, today is 1/21/17, still no heat.
A: A Utah landlord is legally required to keep rental premises livable under a legal doctrine called the “implied warranty of habitability.” If they don’t take care of important repairs, such as a broken heater, tenants in Utah may have several options, including the right to “repair and deduct” rent.
Q. If a holiday weekend falls on the same parent's parent time weekend, but the weekend is longer, which takes precedence?
A: I believe you can return the children in this example on Tuesday. UCA 30-3-35 says: (c) holidays take precedence over the weekend parent-time, and changes shall not be made to the regular rotation of the alternating weekend parent-time schedule; (d) if a holiday falls on a regularly scheduled school day, the noncustodial parent shall be responsible for the child's attendance at school for that school day; (e) (i) if a holiday falls on a weekend or on a Friday or Monday and the total holiday period extends beyond that time so that the child is free from school and the parent is free from work, the noncustodial parent shall be entitled to this lengthier holiday period; or
Q. In probate do you have to declare a vehicle that was used, totaled, cashed out, and monies disbursed to heirs when debts
A: In most cases, probate must be commenced within three years of the decedent's death. Further, small estates (including those with vehicles) generally do not need to be probated. Was there a will? Are their creditors objecting to the distribution to heirs?
