Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency before filing for divorce. Idaho is no exception.

In Idaho, the spouse filing for divorce must have been a resident of the state for a full six weeks immediately before filing. The divorce should be filed in:

  • The county where the defending spouse lives or
  • If the defending spouse is not a resident of the state, the divorce can be filed in the county where the plaintiff lives or designates the complaint. [Idaho Statutes; Title 5, Chapter 404 and Title 32, Chapter 701]

There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and current Idaho driver’s license, ID card or voter’s registration card issued at least six weeks before filing for divorce.

If this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six weeks. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form as proof you’ve lived in the state for a minimum of six weeks.

Valid grounds to get divorce in Idaho

Idaho flag

Grounds for an online divorce using OnlineDivorce.com are the same as they would be for any divorce within the State of Idaho. Grounds are merely the reason for divorce, and the state must approve them.


The No-fault reasons for a divorce in Idaho include:


  • Irreconcilable differences between the spouse and
  • Living separate and apart without any cohabitation for a period of at least five years. [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapters 603 and 610]

Fault-based grounds for divorce in Idaho may include:


  • Adultery or infidelity;
  • Permanent and incurable insanity as has been proven by medical professionals;
  • Conviction of a felony in a state or federal court of law;
  • Willful abandonment or desertion;
  • Extreme cruelty towards the other spouse;
  • Willful neglect of the spouse; and
  • Habitual drunkenness. [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapters 603 to 610]

Please note that fault-based grounds for divorce require proof in the court, making them more challenging than no-fault grounds.

Wesley H.

Wesley H., Missouri

I started my divorce on my own, spending loads of money on lawyer visits in the beginning. So I decided to google for other ways and using this site was so much more simple!

James V.

James V., Texas

I had a very successful business at the time. So, making sure I had the right forms was very very important during my divorce. I was so surprised at how easy and smooth this process was.

Chloe J.

Chloe J., Florida

After years of a tumultuous marriage, I finally decided that I needed to reclaim my life. I was looking for how to go about it and came across this site and they simplified and made the process of divorce easy for me. I never thought it would’ve been possible.

Will S.

Stress-free and easy! I was initially gonna hire a lawyer but I found online divorce the next best option. No muss, no fuss divorce. No big legal words that I’d have to have read 10 times to understand!

Marco P.

Marco P., California

California is expensive and divorce can be even more expensive in the end but I can say that this site payed everything out for me to follow, from child support to alimony. My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.

Tamara B.

Tamara B., Nevada

Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out. Thank you.

Theresa S.

Theresa S., New York

I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce. I was all out of whack, needed answers to take action. Enough was enough so I did it on this site. Everything was clear to understand, all forms and what to put in which box.

Custody of the child in Idaho

Custody of the child

Joint or sole child custody may be awarded in divorce cases based on what would be in the best interests of the child after considering the following factors:

  • The preferences of the child assuming that he or she is of sufficient age and maturity;
  • The wishes and wants of the parents when in line with what is best for the children;
  • The overall char­acter and mitigating circumstances of all family members involved;
  • The relationship that the child has with his or her parents, siblings, and other significant family members in the picture;
  • The child’s adjustment to his or her home, school, and community environment;
  • A need to promote continuity and stability in the life of the child; and
  • Domestic violence, whether or not in the presence of the child.

Joint custody may be allowed if it can be arranged to assure frequent and continuing contact with both parents. Unless shown otherwise, it is presumed that joint custody is in the best interests of the child. [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapters 717 and 717B]

In some cases, custody can be set up as a short-term solution to be revisited at a later date if the family or living situation is expected to change dramatically.

Rules for child support in Idaho

Child support is designed to ensure that the children of divorcing parents will have access to the same level of care and lifestyle as before the divorce. Child support is not meant to be punitive in nature.

Idaho has put into place specific state-mandated child support guidelines that apply in almost every case, barring exceptional circumstances. Both parties’ gross incomes and certain child-related expenses are considered when calculating the child support obligation. In the majority of cases, child support payments continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age and can extend until the completion of their secondary education.

The court may decide to order one or both parents to give child support to a child or children without regard to any marital misconduct, based upon the following factors:

  • Any existing financial resources of the child;
  • The standard of living that the child would have continued enjoying if the marriage had not ended in divorce;
  • The physical and emotional conditions and any ongoing educational needs of a child;
  • The financial resources, needs, and obligations of both parents [normally this would not include the parent’s share of the community property financial resources or any obligations with a new spouse];
  • The availability of any reasonable medical insurance coverage for any child or children; and
  • The tax benefits achieved by the parent who claims the federal dependency exemption on their income taxes.

In Idaho, child support payments are to be paid to the court clerk in the county of filing unless otherwise ordered by the court. Please note that the Idaho Supreme Court has adopted specific child support guidelines that should be presumed to be correct and true unless evidence shows the award would be otherwise unjust.

Finally, child support orders issued in Idaho must always contain provisions that allow enforcement of the order by income withholding if necessary. [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapters 706, and 1201+]

Rules for spousal support in Idaho

Rules for spousal support

Alimony, which is also known as spousal support, is sometimes ordered by the court to help one spouse live in a manner established during the marriage after the divorce. It is often ordered if one spouse has a much higher earning power than the other--such as if one spouse had served as a homemaker during much of the marriage.

Support can be decided upon by the couple or awarded by the court in a contested marriage dissolution case. The court may award rehabilitative (short-term) or more permanent alimony to either of the spouses in either lump-sum payments or as monthly/yearly payments or both.

The court can decide to award maintenance to one of the spouses, if that spouse:

  • Has a lack of sufficient property to provide for reasonable needs and
  • Will be unable to support himself or herself through any obtainable employment.

An award of maintenance is based on the following potential factors:

  • The time necessary to find sufficient education and training that would enable the spouse to obtain appropriate employ­ment;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • The ability of the spouse from whom support is being sought to meet their own needs while also meeting those of the spouse who seeks support;
  • The financial resources of the spouse seeking support, including property allotted to the spouse and the spouse’s ability to meet their own needs independently;
  • The tax consequences that are on the shoulders of each spouse;
  • The age of the spouses;
  • Any physical or emotional conditions of the two spouses; and
  • If there is a fault of either party. [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapter 705]

Property division in Idaho

Property division

When a couple chooses to divorce in Idaho, they must distribute property in a fair and agreeable manner.

Idaho is considered a “community property” state. Each spouse has separate property, which consists of:

  • All property acquired before the marriage;
  • Property which was acquired by gift directly to a spouse either before or during the marriage; and
  • Property acquired by individual gift before or during the marriage.

The court will divide all other property (referred to as the community property) of the spouses in an equal manner unless there are compelling reasons to provide otherwise. The court will consider the following factors:

  • Any marital misconduct;
  • The duration of the marriage;
  • The current age and health of the spouses;
  • The occupation and career prospects of the spouses;
  • The amount and sources of any income of the spouses;
  • The ongoing vocational skills of the spouses;
  • The employability factors of the spouses;
  • Any premarital agreement that has been written by the court;
  • Both the present and potential earning capability of the spouses;
  • Retirement benefits, to include social security, civil service pensions, military and railroad benefits, etc.;
  • The debts or liabilities of the spouses;
  • The long-term needs of the spouses; and
  • Whether the property award is instead of or in addition to marital maintenance (alimony). [Idaho Statutes; Title 32, Chapters 712 and 903 to 919]
