Legal Answers
Q. In Utah are you required to turn over financials in a grandparent visitation case?
A: Short answers, based on the following, applicable rule, are sort of, maybe, and yes, unless you seek a discovery protective order (which will cost even more money and may not be granted). This is from Rule 26.1, Utah Rules of Civil Procedure https://www.utcourts.gov/rules/view.php?type=urcp&rule=26.1: (2) In cases where assets are not at issue, such as paternity, modification, and grandparents’ rights, a party must only serve: (A) the party’s last three current paystubs and the previous year tax return; (B) six months of bank and profit and loss statements if the party is self-employed; and (C) proof of any other assets or income relevant to the determination of a child support award. The court may require the parties to complete a full Financial Declaration for purposes of determining an attorney fee award or for any other reason. Any party may by motion or through the discovery process also request completion of a full Financial Declaration.
Q. Can I get emancipated from a family that's abusive without legal consent from my parents? I'm 16
A: The quick answer: you are on your way. You usually have to complete your high school education and show that you have provided for yourself and can continue to provide for yourself for at least 6 months before you can be emancipated.
Q. Can proctor parents legally open their child's mail if their child is no longer a minor?
A: It depends. Generally speaking, without any other information regarding your friend's situation. Do the proctor parents have a custody or guardianship order? If they do, they likely have a right to open your friend's mail and may have a right to control his finances. Also, if they have such an order, your friend should have his own attorney that he can reach out to in order to request help with this issue. The Court, by law, is to enter custody/guardianship orders that are the least restrictive of the protected person while keeping the person safe physically and financially. Of course, consultation with an experienced, qualified attorney for specific legal advice is the best way to get specific advice on your friend's situation.
