Uncontested divorce in Utah

There are two types of divorce available in the state of Utah: contested and uncontested.

  • Contested dissolution. It is a complicated type of legal breakup, which is inevitable when spouses have irresolvable disputes concerning any divorce-related issues. That is why the proceedings take much longer than in case when the couple is in a full agreement. Having initiated a contested case, spouses have to hire an attorney to represent them in court. Consequently, this type of dissolution is considered especially stressful and expensive for all the parties involved.
  • Uncontested divorce. This option works for couples that have come to a full agreement regarding all the important matters like custody, alimony, and property or debt division. In most cases, spouses don’t even need to hire a lawyer. Moreover, this type of legal breakup is finalized much faster than the contested one as it may be finished as soon as the waiting time of the state is over.

Nevertheless, if you are ready to file for uncontested dissolution, you still have to face a challenging process of dealing with the paperwork. There are dozens of forms you may need to fill out. If you can’t afford to hire a lawyer to help you with this matter and want to look for the forms on the Web, you have to be aware that there are a lot of outdated documents out there.

Getting a divorce in Utah with a child

Before splitting up, couples must settle all issues related to childcare:

  • In the state of Utah, parents are allowed to work on their custody arrangements if they are able to cooperate. The main condition is to take into account the child’s needs and demands.
  • As in many other states, there is physical and legal custody, which can be sole and joint. If parents have joint physical custody though, it doesn’t mean that they will spend an equal amount of time with the child.
  • The parent who spends most of the time with the child is called a ‘custodial parent,’ while the second spouse is called a ‘non-custodial parent.’ A non-custodial parent is granted visitation rights. The visitation schedule is determined before the proceedings and includes weekly, monthly, holiday, and summer visits.
  • According to Utah laws, both parents must pay child support. The amount of money depends on many factors such as the number of children, financial situation of both parents, type of custody, and so on.

I honestly didn’t expect I can do it without a lawyer but decided to try anyway. I don’t know why such services aren’t used more widely as the price is great, I went through questions fast, and my forms were delivered in a few days with instructions.
