Child support is closely tied to custody, because support goes with the children. Utah has adopted child support guidelines. In order to apply the guidelines, each spouse is required to provide his or her income to the judge. With that information, the guidelines produce an amount of support, based on the income of the parties, the number of children involved and how much time the children will spend with each parent. The judge presumes that the amount of support produced by the guidelines is correct, and most judges are reluctant to depart from the guidelines.
