Matter of D.P. – Ms. Trupiano WON dismissal of former husband’s claims for CHANGE IN CHILD CUSTODY
  Husband had filed a motion from California seeking full custody of children and challenging the jurisdiction of the Utah court to have granted child custody to the mother in Utah.

Matter of T.P. – Ms. Trupiano SUCCESSFULLY brokered a SETTLEMENT for husband in divorce-related case involving CHILD CUSTODY AND VISITATION disputes

At mediation, Ms. Trupiano worked with Mr. T and his former wife to come up with many creative solutions to assist them in future communications and situations to assist them in their co-parenting role of their minor children which considers the former couple’s inherent distrust of each other and desire not to speak with each other.
Matter of A.T. – Ms. Trupiano WON against former husband’s wrongful motion to have CHILD SUPPORT be paid to treatment center where teenage child was temporarily residing
