Filing for Divorce in Utah
The legal process of divorcing a spouse is not always easy. Even when there are no disagreements about the terms of your separation, certain documents must be filed and timelines followed. One of the first decisions you must make is how to represent the cause of your divorce. Utah allows divorce based on issues such as:
- Willful desertion or neglect
- Problematic alcohol use
- Criminal convictions
- Spousal abuse
- Irreconcilable differences
Many couples do not hold one party at fault more than the other and therefore use the “irreconcilable differences” clause to justify their separation. However, if you have a specific grievance, our attorneys can help you determine whether it can legally be used in a divorce case.
Like most states, Utah requires those filing for divorce through its court systems to be state residents. However, there is an exception for military families who have been stationed in the state. Our attorneys can explain the requirements you must meet and help you prepare your filing.
It can be difficult to come to the realization that you want or need a divorce from your spouse. However, this may be one of the easiest parts of the process. Especially when one or both partners are actively hostile toward their spouse, agreeing on the terms of a divorce may seem impossible. Our attorneys can help you resolve the following issues many divorcing couples face:
