Divorce Property Division in Utah

Divorce property division in Utah is an important issue that should be carefully addressed in each divorce. The Court will divide all of the marital property regardless who holds title of the property or where it is located, if the parties cannot come to a mutual agreement on their own.

What Property Will I Get in Divorce?

Generally, non-marital property is not subject to division in a divorce. Non-marital property generally includes any property that the party brought into the marriage or received during the marriage by gift or inheritance. Non-marital property can sometimes become marital property if it is commingled with marital property to such an extent or used in such a way that is loses its non-marital status. This can even be unintentional. We will help you ensure that you receive the property to which you are entitled.

Under Utah law all martial property must be equitably divided during a divorce. All property that is acquired during the marriage–even if it is titled in only one party’s name–is generally marital property. For example, if the couple purchases a home during the marriage, but the home is only put in the name of one of the spouses, the home will generally be considered marital property and subject to division.

It should be understood that an equitable division does not always mean 50/50. The court will consider a number of factors, including the occupations of the parties, how long the couple has been married, the age and health of the parties, incomes of the parties, and other related matters.

Does Utah Recognize & Enforce Premarital Agreements?

Utah enforces valid prenuptial or premarital agreements. The parties must have a reasonable mutual disclosure of the financial obligations and property of each other (or waive such disclosure) and agreement must be voluntarily signed by the parties in order for the premarital agreement to be a valid. There are limitations to premarital agreements, however. If you are considering a premarital agreement, or have an existing agreement and have questions about how the agreement will be enforced, schedule a free initial consultation with our knowledgeable divorce attorney to assist you.

I want to thank you for assisting me through this difficult times of going through bankruptcy. I was at the hearing today. Mr. Weekes was there for me. I was scared, but he re-assured me. It went on smoothly. There was a time I became emotional, and started to sob quietly, and looked sad. I want to thank you again kindly.

If you’ve gotta go through the mess of financial bankruptcy, these guys are the best. My attorney as well as all of the paralegals and staff made going through hell much easier than I could have ever asked. Any questions I had they responded to immediately. They were always timely and gave me great legal advise. They aren’t the cheapest option, but the payment plans provided were unbeatable.

I am extremely happy with [Ascent] Law. First, no one ever wants to be in a position to have to file for bankruptcy, but if you do, you need someone who knows what they are doing, and will keep you informed. I was very nervous that I wouldn’t pick the right lawyer, or we would end up with someone who just wanted to get paid, and left us hanging. Our lawyer at Weekes (Perry Bsharah) has been AMAZING. He is always fast to respond to any of my questions, and is very good at making sure you understand what is happening, and that you are comfortable with the process. He has been there every step of the way, and when we had our meeting of creditors, he made sure we knew exactly what to expect, and he was literally the ONLY lawyer there that had everything ready, and organized for their client. This process has gone smoothly, and I can’t recommend Perry enough. Thank you Perry for making this as easy and painless as possible. It has been worth every penny. Now I can focus on my health, and my family instead of hospital bills, and creditor calls.
