Filing for Divorce in Utah

Utah provides a no-fault option for divorce, which means neither spouse must prove any kind of marital misconduct that led to the breakdown of the marriage. You can also file for divorce on certain fault grounds which must be proven to the court.

To finalize a divorce, you must address and resolve a variety of issues such as:

It is in your best interest to come to an agreement with your spouse outside the courtroom, which can then be submitted to the court for approval. If you cannot agree on the terms of your divorce through dispute resolution methods such as mediation, then the divorce issues will proceed to litigation and be decided by a judge.
