Custody of the child in Idaho

Custody of the child

When applying for a divorce in the state of Idaho, one parent must be custodian of a minor child. The court generally makes its decision on the basis of what is best for the child.

The court may award joint custody or sole custody. To render a fair decision, a court may order a child to undergo a psychological and psychiatric test, and will also carefully consider the following factors:

  • The age and emotional state of the child.
  • The age, physical and psychological parameters of each parent.
  • The degree of participation of each parent in the life of the child.
  • Emotional attachment of the child to each of the parents.
  • The desire of each parent to take part in the life of the child.
  • The efforts that each parent makes to raise a child.
  • The presence of brothers and sisters in the life of the child.
  • The readiness of each parent not to interfere with the child's second parent.
  • The ability of parents to cooperate among themselves in making important decisions in the life of the child.
  • The presence of facts of cruel behavior in the family or the manifestation of violence.


Rules for child support in Idaho

If the couple decided to get a divorce in Idaho, the spouses need to decide on financial support for their underage children. If the spouses can not come to a common solution that satisfies all parties, then the court will decide independently. Support for children in the state of Idaho is regulated by a model called "income shares". This model operates in many states and is designed to accurately determine the cost of maintaining the child after the parents' divorce, to enable the child to live in the same conditions under which he lived while the parents were together.

Below are a number of factors that can significantly affect the amount of support:

  • Incomes of parents.
  • The amount required to meet the basic needs of the child.
  • The presence of any other minor children in the care of their parents.
  • Expenses of parents.

Rules for spousal support in Idaho

Rules for spousal support

If during the marriage one of the spouses was completely financially dependent on the partner, then after the divorce, courts of Idaho may oblige the second spouse to pay financial support.

The amount of support usually depends on the needs of the needy spouse and the financial capabilities of the spouse who is required to pay.

Property division in Idaho

Property division

In Idaho, the parties may agree on how to divide their property independently. If they fail to settle property-related issues the court may decide this for them considering the numerous factors and trying to divide the property in a fair way (not necessarily equally).
Idaho is a "Title Property" state. This means that everything in the marriage that was registered on a spouse after the divorce will still be his or her property.

The decision regarding the owner of the property after getting the divorce may depend on the analysis of factors such as: the value of the property, the contribution of each spouse to the acquisition of this property, the tax consequences when registering this property, the financial situation of each partner.

Divorce without a lawyer in Idaho

Cases, when a divorce is made without the participation of a lawyer, are called Pro Se Divorce, it is a Latin expression that translates as "on her or his own". The process of divorce in the state of Idaho can vary from county to county. Nevertheless, a divorce without the participation of a lawyer is completely legal and is subject to execution in any state. If the spouses have come to the agreement of a division of property and custody of children, then it may be rather convenient to initiate the Pro Se Divorce.
