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.
