New Common Law Marriage Page and Forms

A new Judicial Recognition of a Relationship as Marriage page is now available on the Utah State Courts' website.

This process is commonly referred to as "common law marriage," and is the recognition by the courts that a relationship is a marriage even though no wedding ceremony -- religious or civil -- took place.

The page includes an explanation of the conditions that have to be met to qualify, reasons why you might want to ask the court for the determination, and the effect of this determination. The page provides forms for cases in which there is no dispute expected.

If you need help filling out forms, consider hiring an attorney or speaking to a lawyer at a free legal clinic.
