The Utah Divorce Process | Contested or Not

Most married couples don’t look into how a divorce works when they’re getting married, most married couples don’t plan on getting divorced, and so most married couples don’t understand the process of divorce or the different options they have. Its important to first understand what a divorce is, in its simplest form the divorce is simply a contract between two people, very much like a couples marriage is a contract. However, instead of contracting to be together and be considered married before the law the parties are contracting to split up their property, child custody, alimony, and to no longer be considered married before the law.

Utah Family Law & Contested or Uncontested Divorce

When you view divorce as a contract then it is clear that there are two ways to go about it, the easy way or the hard way as they say. If both parties can come to agree on the terms of the agreement then they can simply draft that contract, or the divorce decree as it is called and sign off on it, and that process is considered an uncontested divorce. On the other hand if the parties cannot agree then they will proceed through the contested divorce process and will have to first go through mediation but then may have to fight there case before the judge who will ultimately decide the terms of the agreement.
