Idaho Residency Requirements
A divorce must not be granted unless the plaintiff has been a resident of the state for six (6) full weeks next preceding the commencement of the action. The divorce may be filed in the county in which either the husband or the wife reside. If either spouse is not a resident of the state, the divorce must be filed in the county in which the plaintiff resides. (Idaho Code - Title 5 - Chapters: 404
Idaho Divorce Grounds:
1. Irreconcilable differences. 2. When married persons have heretofore lived or shall hereafter live separate and apart for a period of five (5) years or more without cohabitation, either party to the marriage contract may sue for a divorce which shall be granted on proof of the continuous living separate and apart without cohabitation of the spouses during said period of five (5) years or more. (Idaho Code - Title 32 - Chapters: 603, 610)
Idaho Property and Debt Division
Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, the community property must be assigned by the court in such proportions as the court, from all the facts of the case and the condition of the parties, deems just, with due consideration of the following factors: (1) Unless there are compelling reasons otherwise, there shall be a substantially equal division in value, considering debts, between the spouses. (2) Factors which may bear upon whether a division shall be equal, or the manner of division, include, but are not limited to: (a) Duration of the marriage; (b) Any antenuptial agreement of the parties; provided, however, that the court shall have no authority to amend or rescind any such agreement; (c) The age, health, occupation, amount and source of income, vocational skills, employability, and liabilities of each spouse; (d) The needs of each spouse; (e) Whether the apportionment is in lieu of or in addition to maintenance; (f) The present and potential earning capability of each party; and (g) Retirement benefits, including, but not limited to, Social Security, Civil Service, military and railroad retirement benefits. (Idaho Code - Title 32 - Chapters: 712, 903)
Idaho Spousal Support, Maintenance, or Alimony:
Where a divorce is decreed, the court may grant a maintenance order if it finds that the spouse seeking maintenance: (a) Lacks sufficient property to provide for his or her reasonable needs; and (b) Is unable to support himself or herself through employment. The maintenance order shall be in such amounts and for such periods of time that the court deems just, after considering all relevant factors which may include: (1) The financial resources of the spouse seeking maintenance, including the marital property apportioned to said spouse, and said spouse's ability to meet his or her needs independently; (2) The time necessary to acquire sufficient education and training to enable the spouse seeking maintenance to find employment; (3) The duration of the marriage; (4) The age and the physical and emotional condition of the spouse seeking maintenance; (5) The ability of the spouse from whom maintenance is sought to meet his or her needs while meeting those of the spouse seeking maintenance; (6) The tax consequences to each spouse; (7) The fault of either party. (Idaho Code - Title 32 - Chapters: 705)
Idaho Custody and Visitation:
In an action for divorce the court may, before and after judgment, give such direction for the custody, care and education of the children of the marriage as may seem necessary or proper in the best interests of the children. The court shall consider all relevant factors which may include: (1) The wishes of the child's parent or parents as to his or her custody; (2) The wishes of the child as to his or her custodian; (3) The interaction and interrelationship of the child with his or her parent or parents, and his or her siblings; (4) The child's adjustment to his or her home, school, and community; (5) The character and circumstances of all individuals involved; (6) The need to promote continuity and stability in the life of the child; and (7) Domestic violence, whether or not in the presence of the child. (Idaho Code - Title 32 - Chapters: 717)
Idaho Child Support:
In a proceeding for divorce or child support, the court may order either or both parents owing a duty of support to a child to pay an amount reasonable or necessary for his or her support and education until the child is eighteen (18) years of age, without regard to marital misconduct, after considering all relevant factors which may include: (1) The financial resources of the child; (2) The financial resources, needs, and obligations of both the custodial and noncustodial parents which ordinarily shall not include a parent's community property interest in the financial resources or obligations of a spouse who is not a parent of the child, unless compelling reasons exist; (3) The standard of living the child enjoyed during the marriage; (4) The physical and emotional condition and needs of the child and his or her educational needs; (5) The availability of medical coverage for the child at reasonable cost; (6) The actual tax benefit recognized by the party claiming the Federal Child Dependency Exemption. (Idaho Code - Title 32 - Chapters: 706, 1201)
How Do I Know if I Should File in Idaho?
One would typically file for divorce in the state in which he or she or his or her spouse resides. If you have recently moved to a new state and wish to file in that new state, you may have to establish residency prior to filing.
If you are in the military and are stationed on a base outside your residency state, you typically are able to file in that state or in your residency state.
If you are in the military and are stationed overseas, you would typically file in your home residency state.
Can I Use 3StepDivorceTM if I Have Children?
Yes. The system and your documents will address all the issues regarding your children such as, but not limited to; custody arrangements, visitation and time-sharing, child support, and medical coverage.
How Much Are the Idaho Filing and/or Court Fees?
The filing and/or court fees are not included in our fee and typically range from $50.00 to $350.00 in total depending on your location of filing and whether or not you have children. The 3StepDivorce service will typically help you yield the lowest filing fee for you because both you and your spouse are in agreement.
How Long Will the Process Take in Idaho?
The process takes an average of less than 1 hour to answer the required questions and generate the documents. Once you file your documents with the court according the filing procedures, the length of time will vary depending on the number of cases in front of yours. Each court has only one or just a few Judges, Masters, or Referees to review all the pending cases.
Should I File or Should My Spouse File?
As a rule of thumb, for uncontested divorces, the spouse who really wants the divorce to be finalized typically does the filing.
Where and How Do I File My Documents?
The documents are filed at your local county courthouse in the family law or domestic relations division or department. Inside your account you will receive step-by-step filing procedures.
Can I Mail or Fax My Documents to the Clerk?
Many courts do permit you to mail and/or fax the documents. This will vary from county to county and state to state, so it will be best to check with the clerk at the courthouse when you are ready to file.
Do I Have to Go to Court in Idaho?
Depending on your state and your situation, you may or may not have to attend a short hearing. Most of the time when a hearing is required, it only lasts 10-15 minutes and only the filing spouse must attend. The hearing is where you will be granted your divorce and the judge will sign the final judgment or decree.
Do I Have to Also Hire a Lawyer?
3StepDivorce is designed for you to do your own uncontested divorce without hiring a lawyer. You will be acting as your own lawyer and filing for your own divorce. Should you need or desire legal advice or should your divorce become contested, we do suggest you hire the services of a lawyer.
Will My Name Also Be Changed?
The wife has the option to change her name back to her former or maiden name through the 3StepDivorce solution.
When is the Divorce Actually Finalized in Idaho?
The divorce is typically finalized when the Judge signs the final judgment or decree. We give a window of 30-90 days from the filing date, but this will vary due to case load at the courthouse and any mandatory waiting periods.
