Child Custody Lawyers in Coeur D’Alene

Serving All Five North Idaho Counties

When determining who has custody of a child after a divorce, Idaho courts will take into account many different factors but will primarily focus on what is in the best interests of the child. The court will decide who has physical custody of the child as well as legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the child will spend most or all of their time. Legal custody refers to the decision-making abilities granted to either of the parents in regards to the child’s healthcare, religion, education, and general upbringing.

Child Custody Laws in Idaho

Courts in Idaho operate based on the presumption that joint custody is in the best interests of the child as long as there is no history of domestic violence within the family. With joint custody, the child will be able to spend time with both parents and hopefully have a healthy and happy upbringing. However, joint custody does not mean equal custody; it simply means that the child spends significant amounts of time with both parents. In situations where the parents have shared custody, the parents devise a visitation schedule to determine when and where the parents will be able to spend time with their child.

When determining child custody in Idaho, the courts take into consideration the following, and more:

  • The child’s wishes
  • The parents’ wishes
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • The circumstances and character of all parties involved
  • The child’s relationships with friends, family, and others
  • The child’s adjustment to their community, school, and home
  • The need to promote stability and continuity in the child’s life
