New laws from 2019 Utah Legislative Session – Section 30-3-34 – step parents and others

Welcome back to our feature on new laws from the 2019 Utah Legislative Session.

In 2019 the legislature amended section 30-3-34 rather extensively. We discussed some of those changes in previous blog posts. Another change is the addition of new criteria the court can consider when making a child custody and parent time award. One of those new criteria is “the child’s interaction and relationship with stepparents and extended family members of other individuals who may significantly affect the child’s best interest.” Here’s the link to Section 30-3-34.
