    Level 6:  Trial

    In all hearings where the allegations of the petition are in question, testimony and evidence shall be presented to the Court.  The petitioner will be the first to present their case then time will be allotted for the defense.  Finally, both parties may have the opportunity for closing arguments.

    All oral testimony before the court shall be given under oath.  The burden of proof for criminal and delinquency matters is that the case must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt by the petitioner.  Evidence and exhibits should be presented according to Utah Rules of Evidence and the Code of Judicial Administration Rule 4-206.

    All parties must have adequate time and notice in order to call or subpoena witnesses.  For more information on how to subpoena witnesses, see the link on Free Legal Advice.

    At the end of the trial a verdict will be made by the Judge and a dispositional order made.
