Uncontested Divorce Lawyers in Midvale, UT
Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
If you and your spouse can agree upon the key issues related to your divorce, you may be able to undergo an uncontested divorce. In this type of divorce, you and your spouse reach your own agreements regarding custody, support, and property division to avoid the time and expense typically associated with a drawn-out courtroom divorce.
Serving Midvale and all of Salt Lake County, we at Haskins James offer experienced counsel to help you through this important process. Although uncontested divorce may be less expensive, less time consuming, and less stressful than a contested divorce in court, you still need to be certain that your interests are protected and that the process is handled according to Utah law. We can provide the level of representation you need to pursue a swift and favorable result.
Uncontested Divorce Requirements in Utah
If you want to file for divorce in Utah, you or your spouse must have resided in Utah for at least three months, or for at least six months if you have minor children. You will typically file your divorce paperwork in the Utah county in which you or your spouse live.
For a divorce to be uncontested, you and your spouse must agree on several key issues:
- That you want to divorce
- The grounds of your divorce
- The amount and duration of alimony
- Child support
- Child custody and visitation (parent-time)
- The division of property, assets, and debt
Regarding support and custody, you must have a signed and notarized agreement regarding these issues, or they must not have been requested.
