Can I Stop my Utah Divorce from Happening?

Robert and Anne have been married for quite a while. Robert knows his marriage isn’t great, but he loves his wife and wants to make things work.

One day someone knocks at the door. Robert opens and is handed divorce papers. He’s devastated. He doesn’t know what to do, but he knows he doesn’t want this. He’ll do anything, anything to keep his marriage.

Can Robert stop his Utah divorce from happening?

No, there’s nothing he can do legally.

Utah is what we call a “no-fault state.” This means no one has to have done any wrong. Essentially, anyone can get a divorce for any reason.

In a no-fault state, if one person wants a divorce, there’s nothing the other person can do to stop it. It’s going to happen if someone wants it to happen.

Really, the only way you stop your divorce is to work with your spouse and convince them to work toward reconciliation. That’s a difficult road, and it doesn’t usually work, but there is no other way.
