Residency Requirements

If you don't meet the residency requirements of the state you're trying to file in, the case may get dismissed by the court. The residency requirements in Utah are as follows:

  • The petitioner or respondent must have been an actual and bona fide resident for 3 months of this state and of the county where the action is brought
  • This also applies to members of the armed forces of the United States who are not legal residents of this state, where the petitioner has been stationed in this state under military orders
