What is the Quickest Way to get Divorced in Utah?
You know we get some great questions about divorce, child custody, grandparent’s rights, adoptions, and all areas of family law, but one that get more than you’d think is this one – how do I get a quick divorce?
However, there is something you can do to speed it up. You can file a motion to waive the 90 day waiting period. Now, it used to be a few years ago that you could file the motion and have no reason at all, other than you want to get it done quickly, and the court would grant the motion and the judge would sign off on it. But that’s not the case anymore.

Now, in 2017, the judges will only sign a waiver of the 90 days with good cause shown. This could mean something like (1) you are getting married to another person and so you need the process sped up; (2) you’ve already been separated for years, so there is no reason to have the 90 day waiting period in your case; or (3) there is some other really good reason to expedite the process.
So, can it be done? Yes.
Will it work? Maybe.
You’ve got to have a really good reason. If your reason is: I really, really, really want a fast divorce, that probably won’t be good enough.
