New Financial Declaration Requirements

financial declaration.jpgThe new Utah Rule of Civil Procedure 26.1 requires each party in certain domestic actions to file a financial declaration using the court-approved forms. The rule applies to the following domestic actions: divorce; temporary separation; separate maintenance; parentage; custody; child support; and modification.

Note that a certificate of service is filed with the court, but normally the parties will not file the financial declaration and attachments with the court until the documents are needed. For example, the documents will be needed by the court before any pretrial conference or trial. They will also be needed if a party asks for a temporary order. For information about asking the court for a temporary order, go here.
