Residency:

Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency within the state they are divorcing.Utah is no exception.

For spouses who wish to file for divorce in Utah, the person who is filing for the divorce must have been a resident of Utah, or have been serving in the armed forces in Utah, for at least three months prior to filing. There is also a 90-day waiting period before the divorce will actually be granted.

There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and in-date Utah driver’s license, ID card or voter’s registration card which was issued at least six months before filing for divorce. If this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency, by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six months. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form, and it should serve as proof you’ve lived in the state a minimum of six months.

Stress-free and easy! I was initially gonna hire a lawyer but I found online divorce the next best option. No muss, no fuss divorce. No big legal words that I’d have to have read 10 times to understand!
Marco P., California
California is expensive and divorce can be even more expensive in the end but I can say that this site payed everything out for me to follow, from child support to alimony. My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.
Tamara B., Nevada
Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out. Thank you.
Theresa S., New York
I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce. I was all out of whack, needed answers to take action. Enough was enough so I did it on this site. Everything was clear to understand, all forms and what to put in which box.

Custody of the child in Utah

Custody of the child

The Utah court system recognize that in most cases a child or children’s best interests served if both parents are involved with their upbringing after a divorce. When the parents craft an agreement regarding legal and physical responsibility, the court will usually accept it as long as the agreement appears to be in the child’s best interests.

Child custody, either joint or sole, is determined based on what is in the best interest of the child or children after considering the following factors:

  • Moral standards and past conduct of parents
  • Welfare of the child or children
  • Preference of the children
  • Which of the parents is most likely to consider the best interest of the child or children
  • Which of the parents are most likely to allow for frequent and continue in contact with the other parent

If there has been any allegations of child or spousal abuse by either parent, the court will order an investigation by the Division Of Family Services or of the Utah Department of Human Services.

Joint legal custody can be ordered if:

  • It is in the best interest of the child or children and
  • Both parents agree to the joint custody or
  • Both parents filed a parenting plan for joint custody and is based on the consideration of the following factors:
  • The physical psychological or emotional needs and development of the child will benefit
  • The parents can get first priority to the welfare of the child and Richard decisions in the child’s best interest
  • The parent will encourage and accept a positive relationship between the child and other parents
  • Whether both of the parents were an active participant in child rang before the divorce
  • The geographical proximity of the parents home
  • If the child is this sufficient age and maturity to share their own preference
  • The maturity of the parents and their own willingness to protect the child from any conflict between the parents
  • Any indication of past child or spouse will be us
  • Ability of the parents cooperate
  • Any other relevant factors

The court will not discriminate against a parent who has a disability when deciding on custody issues. The court may request that dispute resolution be attempted prior to enforcing or modifying of custody terms.

Rules for child support in Utah

Utah’s standard child support guidelines apply in almost all cases. Both spouses’ income and many of the child related expenses are considered when calculating child support obligations. In the State of Utah, child support obligations will continue until the child or children reaches age eighteen, and those support payments may extend through the completion of the child’s secondary education. Child support is usually paid by wage assignment.

Either or both parents may be ordered to provide child support. Support may include medical and dental expenses as well as standard health insurance. The court at times also orders the non-custodial parent to assist with providing daycare and childcare expenses while the custodial parent is working or undergoing training. Income withholding may be ordered to guarantee child support payments. There are official Child Support Guidelines which are presumed to be correct unless there is reason that the amount would be unjust or grossly inappropriate under the circumstances in a case. Some of the factors for consideration in awarding support outside the guidelines include:

  • The standard of living of the parties;
  • The comparative wealth and income of the parties;
  • The abilities to earn of the parents;
  • The needs of the parents and the child;
  • The ages of the parents and the child; and
  • The responsibilities that the spouses may have for the support of others.

An official child support worksheet is contained in the statute. In addition, a financial verification form is required. [Utah Code Annotated; Sections 30-3-5, 30-3-5.1, and 78-45-7 to 78-45-7.5].

Rules for spousal support in Utah

Rules for spousal support

Alimony, also known as spousal support, is sometimes ordered by the court to help one spouse live in a manner established during marriage after the divorce. Assistance may be decided upon by the couple together before filing or may be awarded by the court in a contested case. The court may award rehabilitative (short-term) or more permanent alimony to either of the spouses in either lump-sum payments or as monthly/yearly payments or both.

In Utah, either spouse can be ordered to pay an equitable amount of alimony to the other. The following factors, among others, are to be considered:

  • The overall financial condition and ongoing needs of the recipient spouse;
  • The recipient’s earning capacity and potential earning capacity and ability to produce income;
  • The ability that the paying spouse has to provide support;
  • The duration of the marriage;
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the couple at the time of separation;
  • Any marital fault that was assumed to be of one of the spouses;
  • If the marriage has been lengthy andi t dissolves at the time of a major change in income of one of the spouses;
  • If one spouse’s earning capacity or education was greatly enhanced by the other’s efforts;

and

  • Whether the spouse has custody of the child or children;
  • Whether the spouse worked in a business operated by and/or owned by the other spouse or his or her family; and
  • Any other factors deemed relevant by the court which will be reviewed at that time.

As a general rule, the court does not award alimony for a period any longer than the duration of the marriage. Alimony terminates when the spouse remarries or cohabitates with another person. More information about alimony and other forms of support is available, if applicable as you work through the process of filing your divorce on OnlineDivorce.com. [Utah Code Annotated; Sections 30-3-3 and 30-3-5].

Property division in Utah

Property division

When a couple decides to divorce in Utah, they must split their property in a fair and agreeable manner. When the couple agrees upon the split themselves, the court will usually go along with anything decided assuming it is fair and in the best interests of any children that may be involved in the divorce.

Utah is declared to be an “equitable distribution” state by the court of law. This means that all of both spouse’s property, includ­ing items acquired jointly as well as gifts, inheritances, and any property acquired prior to or during the marriage, will be divided equitably between the two spouses by the court. There are no additional factors for consideration specified in the statute even in the case of an at-fault divorce. [Utah Code Annotated; Sections 30-3-5 and 30-3-12].
