If you qualify for the above requirements, and are considering to file legal separation papers in the state of Utah, then here is the list of divorce forms you will need to fill out.

We also recommend you to visit Utah State Judicial Branch website to find out any other updates and divorce paper filing requirements. Also, all Utah courts use the same basic set of divorce forms. But some courts have special, local legal separation forms, too. To see if you will need any special local forms, contact your court clerk or your local county court’s website. The forms may be posted on their site. If not, the site will list the address and phone number of your local courthouse.
