Voluntary Abandonment

Voluntary Abandonment

Voluntary Abandonment is one of the grounds for divorce in the state of Utah. Black’s Law Dictionary states that an abandonment is when you relinquish a right or interest with the intention of never again claiming it. In the context of contracts for the sale of land, courts sometimes
use the term abandonment as if it were synonymous with rescission, but the two
should be distinguished. An abandonment is merely the acceptance by one party of the
situation that a nonperforming party has caused. But a rescission due to a material
breach by the other party is a termination or discharge of the contract for all purposes.

It’s typically a part of family law. The act of leaving a spouse or child willfully and without an intent to return is like desertion or malicious abandonment. The desertion of a spouse without just cause.

In a divorce case, voluntary abandonment is a final departure without the consent of the other spouse, without sufficient reason. and without an intent to return. In the law of adoption, a natural
parent’s willful act or course of conduct that implies a conscious disregard of or indifference to a child, as if no parental obligation existed.

I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust. I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong. I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in 2010 and a J.D. in 2014. I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high. Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.
