What County and Courthouse Do I File for Divorce in Utah?

So you've made the decision to file for divorce. You need to know what county to file your paperwork in and what address should be used on your court forms (or risk the possibility of them being rejected, meaning they would be returned to you unfiled).

Either you or your spouse must have lived in a single Utah county for a period of at least 3 months before filing your divorce petition. This also applies to members of the military and their spouses, wherein the Petitioner (the one initiating the divorce process) must have resided in Utah for at least three months before bringing an action, even though they may only be stationed there and are not legal residents.
