Utah divorce - child custody.

Joint or sole child custody is determined according to the best interests of the child and after a consideration of the following factors:
(1) the past conduct and moral standards of the parents; (2) the welfare of the child; (3) the child's preference if the child is at least 12 years of age; (4) which parent is likely to act in the best interests of the child; and (5) which parent is likely to allow frequent and continuing contact with the other parent.

If there is an allegation of child abuse by either spouse, the court must order an investigation by the Division of Family Services or the Utah Department of Human Services. Joint custody may be ordered if:
(1) it will be in the best interests of the child and (2) both parents agree to joint custody; or (3) both parents appear capable of implementing joint custody; and it is based upon a consideration of the following factors:

The court may not discriminate against a parent with a disability when considering custody issues. The court may order that dispute resolution be attempted prior to any enforcement or modification of custody terms. There are also advisory visita
