Not getting married doesn't avoid complexities of divorce

"It's helpful to get married, if you want to get divorced." On the surface, this sentence seems obvious -- after all, you cannot get divorced in Utah unless you are married first. But the man who said this meant that cohabitation, or two unmarried adults living as a family with children, does not necessarily simplify things if the couple wants to split up. In the man's case, it actually made things more difficult that there is no divorce process for cohabiting couples.

Former Utah mayor charged with DUI

The former mayor of a Utah town who resigned in February after being arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving that month was formally charged with DUI on March 5. The case is an example of how a DUI arrest can impact a person's career even before the charges are adjudicated.

Should 'blame' for divorce affect alimony in Utah?

Like virtually every other state, Utah has no-fault divorce. This means that, unlike in decades past, a couple can get a divorce without one spouse having to prove that the other "caused" the problems that led to end of the marriage. Similarly, when one spouse requests alimony, the court generally considers financial questions like each spouse's income, future earning capacity and savings, as well as the length of the marriage and each spouse's contributions to the union.
