Easy Uncontested Divorce in Utah

A divorce doesn’t have to be a nasty battle between the parties. Most couples who decide to end a marriage will work out the details of alimony, child support, and property division on their own. Uncontested Divorce in Utah is the way most people choose to get divorced because it is the most affordable and reasonable solution. If you and your spouse can agree on all the particulars of the divorce (i.e., alimony, child support, custody, property division, etc.), than the cost and time it will take to see the divorce finalized is greatly reduced.

What is the process?

The first thing you need to realize if you are hiring Salcido Law Firm as your Utah uncontested divorce lawyer is that the lawyer you get to do your uncontested divorce in Utah cannot represent both of you. The lawyer will need to know at the start which of you is the client and which is not.

The process is usually simple if you have an attorney on board to walk you through it. At Salcido Law Firm, we sit down with each client and discuss all of the relevant issues. The attorney advises the client on the all of the relevant issues and the client goes over any concerns. The attorney and client put together a game plan. The client gathers all of the necessary documentation and the attorney puts all of the necessary paperwork together. The client than reviews all of the documents with the attorney and if everything is ok the attorney will file the paperwork. Sometimes the court will require at least one hearing and in some cases the court will simply grant the divorce petition after all of the requirements have been met.
