What are Idaho's Divorce Residency Requirements?

To file for divorce in Idaho, you must have been a resident for at least six weeks prior to filing.

  • The earliest you can get a divorce started is 20 days after you file. If you have children, however, the Court may require you complete the Court-ordered parenting classes before entry of a final Judgment.
  • Idaho allows you to file for no fault divorce, which is officially known as filing due to “irreconcilable differences.”

Navigating Idaho's Family Law Statutes

Like all U.S. states, Idaho has its own laws and statutes that pertain to adoption, marriage, and other family legal matters. 

Important state laws and legal procedures you should be aware of include:

  • To adopt an individual who is at least 12 years old, the child must consent to the adoption (unless they lack the mental capacity to do so). 
  • Married individuals require the consent of their spouse to adopt.
  • Gay and lesbian couples who are single or married can adopt in Idaho. 
  • Child custody will be decided based upon the standard of the “best interests of the child.”
  • When it comes to child support, both parents share legal responsibility for financially supporting their children.
