Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I suggest a local attorney could require a retainer of $2500 to $3500. Remember, this would be a contested matter, which means the time involved would mean the retainer is higher - and then possibly more if it needs to go to court.
I suggest, however, that you can get the packet of forms from the clerk of the court in the county where the child lives and file on your own, pro se if you think you can articulate your case to the court.

Thank you. That gives me a good idea of cost.

You also could try to file on your own, if you are inclined. And here is a Link to the Utah law in that regard, if you need it

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
