ATTENTION AND DISCLAIMER This guide is intended to give a general overview of the statutes, guidelines, rules and general issues one may wish to review before filing a petition for divorce. An ‘uncontested divorce’ is granted when both parties agree to the terms of the divorce without further litigating the issues. If the parties cannot agree to the terms of the filed petition for divorce, then the matter becomes a ‘contested’ divorce. Should a divorce become ‘contested’, there are additional statutes, rules and considerations that one should be aware of that are not covered in this guide. This guide is not meant to be a comprehensive information presentation. It presents brief explanations of general Utah procedural rules and laws relating to divorce. There may be other issues and applicable statutes to issues discussed herein and/or applicable to other issues that are not included in this manual. The author of this guide suggests the reader research specific issues in more detail by searching for further information either online, a law library, and/or seeking a consultation from a Utah licensed attorney. This guide does not offer specific legal advice, and does not constitute an attorney/client arrangement. The reader is cautioned to follow any suggestions contained in this manual at his/her own risk. Information presented here is taken mostly from the existing codes, statutes, and rules that are published and referenced herein either directly or indirectly.
