Utah Code Title 75 is also known as the Utah Uniform Probate Code. The code states that the probate code’s underlying purposes and policies are:

  • To simplify and clarify the law concerning the affairs of the decedents, missing persons, protected persons, minors, and incapacitated persons;
  • To discover and make effective the intent of a decedent in distribution of his property;
  • To promote a speedy and efficient system for administering the estate of the decedent and making distribution to his successors;
  • To facilitate use and enforcement of certain trusts; and
  • To make uniform the law among the various jurisdictions.
