Unless extreme circumstances exist, there is a mandatory 90-day waiting period for divorce in Utah that must be met. Each divorce is unique and the timeframe cannot be guaranteed. Some factors that may lengthen the process include a custody evaluation, business valuation, or the inability to reach an agreement, which will then require a trial. The standard deadlines should place each case in a position to be certified for trial in approximately 300 days from the date you file for divorce. However, these deadlines can be extended if necessary.
