Is Idaho a No-Fault Divorce State?

Consider Idaho as a fault and no-fault state. A party may file on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and that is sufficient grounds to end a marriage by either party in the State of Idaho.  The State of Idaho also has various grounds for divorce listed in Idaho Code Title 32 Chapter 6.  There may be compelling reasons to plead one of those grounds for divorce depending on your case; however, if you plead grounds for divorce other than irreconcilable difference, those grounds must be agreed to by the other party or proved at trial in order to have your divorce granted for a reason other than irreconcilable differences.

How to Get a Divorce in Idaho

To get a divorce in Idaho, follow these steps to navigate the legal process:

  • Meet Residency Requirements: Ensure you or your spouse meet Idaho's residency requirements. Either one of you must have lived in the state for at least six weeks before filing.
  • Determine Grounds for Divorce: Idaho allows both no-fault and fault-based divorce. No-fault is based on irreconcilable differences, and a fault-based divorce can be due to adultery, cruelty, or willful desertion.
  • Prepare Necessary Forms: Obtain the appropriate divorce forms. These can typically be acquired from the courthouse, online, or through your attorney. Fill out the forms accurately and completely.
  • File the Divorce Papers: Submit the completed forms to the county court where you or your spouse reside. Pay the filing fee unless you qualify for a fee waiver.
  • Serve Divorce Papers: Ensure your spouse is served with the divorce papers following Idaho's rules of service. This may involve personal service by a third party or acknowledgment of service by your spouse.
  • Negotiate and Reach Settlement: Work with your spouse and their attorney (if applicable) to negotiate the terms of the divorce, including property division, child custody, support, and alimony. Try to reach an agreement to simplify the process.
  • Court Hearing: If you and your spouse can't agree on all terms, you may need a court hearing to present your case to a judge.
  • Receive Decree of Divorce: Once the judge approves the divorce, you'll receive a decree of divorce finalizing the process.

It's advisable to consult with a Boise divorce attorney to guide you through the legalities, especially if your divorce involves complex issues or disagreements.
