Idaho allows you to complete your divorce without an attorney if you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property and how you will care for any children that you have.
Idaho Residency Requirements
The person filing the divorce (the Plaintiff) must have been a resident of Idaho for six (6) weeks immediately preceding the filing of the Complaint for Divorce.
Grounds For Divorce
Idaho allows a no-fault divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.
Filing Your Idaho Divorce
After completing the online interview, DivorceWriter sends you the divorce forms you prepared online along with detailed Idaho filing procedures.
The basic steps for filing your divorce are as follows:
- You file a Complaint for Divorce and related documents.
- Your spouse completes an Acknowledgment of Service, which you file with the Clerk of the District Court.
- After the 20-day waiting period, you file the Sworn Stipulation for Entry of Decree of Divorce and related documents. Once the judge signs the Decree of Divorce, the court will mail the Decree to both parties. A court hearing is not required unless the judge decides one is necessary.
Division of property & debt, child parenting plan (including child support, visitation and custody), spousal support, and more are covered.
DivorceWriter provides forms specific to the state of Idaho that are guaranteed to be accepted by the Court.
