Of those, virtually all were no-fault divorces, according to Louise Knauer, chairwoman of the Utah State Bar's Family Law Section.Knauer says Wallace's bill is unlikely to have the desired effect of reducing divorce rates in the state.More likely, such legislation could make divorce in Utah more expensive and lengthy.And low-income couples would have a difficult time drafting more complex divorce papers through free clinics and Web sites."I'm not sure the solution to divorce is to say you're going to have to prove he had sex with someone else or she beat you with an ax.It's a much more complex set of questions," Knauer says.Utah National Organization for Woman President Andrea Moore-Emmett worries that ending no-fault divorce will victimize women and children."Eliminating no-fault divorce can only make the process more adversarial, which is never good for children involved and can put women at higher risk for violence," she says.
