How Often Do Utah Divorce Cases Go to Trial?

Nationally, about 1%-2% of all cases go to trial. Of those that go to trial, about 85% of those trials last one day.

In Utah, divorce cases go to trial about 2% of the time.

The majority of those cases are one-day trials; although, if you discuss both financial issues and child custody issues, then two-days is pretty standard.

At Brown Family Law, we have found that about 2%-3% of our cases go to trial. In the last about two years, we have gone to trial approximately 15 times.
