So, the Utah Legislature doesn’t like divorce. And to show how much it doesn’t like divorce, Utah used to have a 90-day divorce waiting period.
On May 8, 2018, the Utah Legislature shortened the 90-day waiting period to 30 days.
So, now a divorce can be finalized 30 days after it’s filed.
In reality, it’ll probably be more like 45 days, because divorce documents tend to sit around on a judge’s desk for two weeks before they are signed.
Either way, it’s a lot shorter waiting period than it used to be.
