This is a good but very broad question. Here, in a nutshell, is a good way to start learning the answer:
If you want to know the divorce laws in Utah, you will want to read the laws and the rules of court (civil procedure and evidence) that govern divorce actions. Read about how divorce law is applied in Utah. Here are the links to all three of these things:
- Utah Code Title 30. Husband and Wife
- Utah Code Title 78B. Chapter 12. Utah Child Support Act
- Utah Code Title 62A. Utah Human Services Code. Chapter 11. Recovery Services
- Utah Rules of Civil Procedure
- Utah Rules of Evidence
- Utah Appellate Court Opinions
Read—and comprehend*—good websites (not just any websites) that explain and discuss Idaho divorce law and how it applies, and you will want to meet with an experienced, knowledgeable, and skilled attorney who is licensed in the state of Idaho to practice law to gain a better understanding of Idaho divorce law generally and how Idaho divorce law can affect you and your family specifically.
And you will want to meet with an experienced, knowledgeable, and skilled attorney who is licensed in the state of Idaho to practice law to gain a better understanding of Idaho divorce law generally and how Idaho divorce law can affect you and your family specifically. Don’t skip this step. Don’t jump over dollars to pick dimes by fooling yourself with “Just think of the money I saved by not talking to an expert on a subject that will have a profound effect on the rest of my life but of which I know nothing!”
*reading (and listening to podcasts or watching videos) does you no good if you do not in fact learn anything from it. Pay attention. Understand what you’re reading. Just reading alone doesn’t educate you. If you don’t understand the subject after reading/listening/watching, then read/listen/watch more and/or pay closer attention. No “A” is given for effort.
