Utah Legal Separation Lawyer
Utah’s Laws Regarding Separation
In Utah, separated parties may obtain necessary domestic orders without divorcing. This allows the parties to separate and define issues related to their family, but still stay married. Often, parties choose separate maintenance or legal separation over divorce in Utah because of religious opposition to divorce, or so that a dependent spouse may continue to receive marital benefits such as insurance, inheritance, etc.
An action for Separate Maintenance in Utah may be brought under the following circumstances:
- A spouse is deserted without good and sufficient cause.
- A spouse refuses to provide for the other when they have the ability to do so.
- A spouse has property in this state and deserts or neglects the other.
- When the parties live separate from each other.
- If a spouse is imprisoned for more than a year and does not provide for the other.
