Custody of the child in Wyoming

Custody of the child

In Wyoming divorce cases, the court can choose to award either joint or sole custody to either parent or both parents. The state of Wyoming defines the term joint legal custody not as who has the child in his or her possession but instead as as a form of “shared parental responsibility,” and joint custody is recognized and supported as preferable to sole custody when it is in the best interest of the child or children. Joint custody does not mean that both parents spend an equal time with the child or children. Parents are given fair and equal consideration when determining custody and no preference is given to one parent versus the other based on gender.

In Wyoming, the court will usually approve any agreement the parents make regarding custody, as long as it is in the best interests of the child or children. As such, it may be beneficial for the spouses to work together and draw up a custody agreement before filing for divorce. This can save time and will assure that the resulting plan is something that can be agreed upon by both spouses.

If the court has to decide on custody without an agreement in place it could be granted based on what would be in the best interests of the child according to factors such as these:

  • The parent who is most likely to allow the child to have frequent and meaningful contact with the non-custodial parent and other family members;
  • Any already-establish love, affection, and emotional ties between parents and the child or children;
  • The ability and desire of the parents to provide the child with food, medical care, clothing or remedial care, and other material and physical needs;
  • The length of time the child has lived in a home which has proven to be a stable, satisfactory environment which has the means to of maintaining continuity;
  • The permanence or assumed permanence, as a family, of the existing or proposed custodial home of either of the parents;
  • The presumed mental, physical and moral wellness of the parents;
  • The ongoing home, school, and community records of the child or children;
  • If the child is old enough to express a preference, his or her choice in the matters;
  • The willing­ness of both parents to foster a continued relationship with the other parent--whether or not he or she is spending any time as a custodial influence in the child’s life;
  • Any evidence that one or both parents have lied or supplied any false testimony to the court in any matter involving domestic violence;
  • Whether any evidence exists to support a claim of child or spousal abuse;
  • Other relevant factors. Although other pertinent factors may be considered, the parents’ genders will not be considered as a determining factor in choosing custody arrangements;
  • If possible, the courts will work with the parents and their wishes for a custody agreement. Working together to create an agreeable plan on your own before the court would decide is always a good idea as the court will strongly consider any proposal the parents come up with as they are making their custody decisions. Although having an agreed upon plan for custody is encouraged, Wyoming does not require an official, in-writing parenting plan or any parenting education classes be completed before divorcing.

Rules for child support in Wyoming

Wyoming has put into place specific state-mandated child support guidelines which apply in almost every case, barring special circumstances. With this, both parties’ gross incomes and certain child related expenses are considered when calculating the child support obligation. In the great majority of cases, child support payments continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age, and can extend until the completion of the child or children’s secondary education.

Some of the specific factors for consideration for which support guidelines may be adjusted include:

  • Out of the ordinary medical, educational, psychological, or dental expenses (either on a one-time basis or ongoing);
  • The existence of income of the child or children;
  • The custodial parent is receiving both child support and spousal support (alimony);
  • Seasonal or other variations in one or both parents’ income or expenses;
  • The age of the child or children, with the expectation that older children will have more expenses than younger;
  • Special needs of the children or the family;
  • Terms put into writing of a shared parental arrangement;
  • The total assets of both the parents and the child;
  • The impact of the IRS Dependency Exemption on the parent’s taxes;
  • Any other reasonable consideration to make the child support payments equitable; and
  • If the child support guidelines would require the supporting spouse to pay 55% or more of his or her personal income toward such a cost.

As a note, medical insurance for the child and life insurance that covers the life of the parent who pays support may be a requirement of the court and payments for child support can sometimes be required to be funded through a protected state bank.

Rules for spousal support in Wyoming

Rules for spousal support

Alimony, also known as spousal support, is sometimes ordered by the court to help one spouse live in a manner established during marriage after the divorce. Support may be decided upon by the couple together prior to filing or may be awarded by the court in a contested case. The court may award rehabilitative (short-term) or a more permanent alimony to either of the spouses in either lump-sum payments or as monthly/yearly payments or both. Adultery can sometimes be a factor in awarding support. This means that if one spouse was thought to “cause” the divorce through an extra-marital affair, he or she might be less likely to be awarded alimony or it can change the amount that would be granted by the court. Other factors which are considered in the awarding of spousal support are:

  • The time needed to obtain education and/or training that would enable a spouse to find appropriate employment and that spouse’s future capacity to earn a living in such a role;
  • The standard of liv­ing which was established during the time of the marriage;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • The financial resources of the spouses in comparison to each other. Resources would include their earning abilities in the labor market;
  • The contribution that each spouse makes to the marriage, including services rendered in the workforce, homemaking, childcare, care of other family members, education, and helping to build the career of the other spouse;
  • The ages of each of the spouses currently and at the time of marriage;
  • The emotional and physical wellbeing of the spouses;
  • Each spouse’s marital and non-marital assets and liabilities;
  • Other factors which the court deems vital in making such a decision.

Please note that alimony payments can be ordered to be paid through a state depository in some cases.

Property division in Wyoming

Property division

When a couple chooses to divorce in Wyoming, they must distribute property in a fair and agreeable manner. Legally, Wyoming is considered to be an “equitable distribution” state. Each spouse’s non-marital property is to be retained by each spouse. Non-marital property is deemed to be all property which was acquired before the marriage, property received as a gift or inheritance, and any property declared to be non-marital as per a written agree­ment contracted between the spouses. Once the non-marital property is set aside, the court is required to begin property distribution with the premise that all marital property should be equally divided. This distribution will be based on the following factors:

  • The economic (and other) circumstances of each of the two spouses at the time the division of property is to become effective;
  • How and by whom the property was acquired;
  • The merits that each spouse may have;
  • The economic and other burdens that would be imposed upon either spouse for the benefit of any children or the other spouse; and
  • Any other reasonable factor necessary to assure equity and justice between the two spouses. [Wyoming Statutes Annotated--Title 20, Chapter 20-2-114].
