What To Know About Divorce In Utah
Utah has some unique laws when it comes to divorce. For instance, there is a 90-day waiting period before the court will hear a divorce complaint. This means that you must wait about three months at least before the court will finalize your divorce.
In Utah, you also have three options for divorce: contested divorce, uncontested divorce and default divorce. If you and your spouse disagree on terms such as parenting time, you have a contested divorce. Uncontested divorce is when spouses agree on or can compromise on the divorce terms. Default divorce occurs when one spouse files for divorce and the other one does not respond to the petition.
