Divorce Laws in Idaho

In order to be eligible to file for a divorce in Idaho, you need to have been a state resident for at least six weeks. Once that standard has been met, you can file for divorce at the district court in the county where either you or your spouse resides. There is any number of valid reasons for filing for divorce in the eyes of Idaho lawmakers, most of which are easy to prove.

For a contested divorce, the legal grounds for a dissolution of marriage include:

  • Cruelty
  • Insanity
  • Adultery
  • Felony conviction
  • Desertion or neglect
  • Irreconcilable differences
  • Narcotics or alcohol addiction

Idaho is a community property state, which essentially means that the division of your estate during a divorce is usually equal between both spouses. That’s because virtually all assets that are acquired during marriage are considered community property, regardless of whose name is on the assets themselves. Debts, savings, and value accrued on separate property during a marriage can all be considered community property in the eyes of the court. When dividing your estate, the court will take into account numerous factors, such as if there was a marital agreement in place, what both spouse’s earning capacities are, if alimony is necessary, and more.
