Contested Divorce in Utah
Divorce can be a difficult situation for the parties involved including the children. Often the parties are unable to agree on major issues involved with the termination of the marriage. A contested divorce is a divorce in which the spouses are unable to reach an agreement on at least one issue related to the termination of their marriage. Often parties will fight over such issues as what the custody arrangements should be, how much if any alimony should be paid, who should be allowed to stay in the home, etc. When parties to a divorce cannot agree on major issues, they must go to court and ask the court to resolve their differences.
Contested divorces are somewhat common because there are numerous issues to be resolved between a husband and wife when they divorce or separate. Often the parties are unable to amicably resolve the issues between them.
Utah law encourages parties to resolve their issues before asking the court to resolve them. However, there are many circumstances where fundamental disagreements prevent the parties from resolving issues.
