Utah Separation Agreement Template

Updated August 07, 2023

A Utah separation agreement is a legal document used by married couples who do not wish to live together as spouses but are not ready to divorce. Utah recognizes two distinct legal possibilities: temporary separation, which is limited to one (1) year, and a petition for separate maintenance, which is available only in certain situations. In either case, couples may use a separation agreement to spell out their rights and responsibilities while separated.

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Utah?

Yes, couples can create separation agreements to settle property issues, and can petition a court through a temporary separation order or a separate maintenance action to create enforceable terms regarding child support, custody and other matters.
