Grounds for Divorce

Idaho has provisions for divorcing that are based both on fault and no fault. Irreconcilable differences is the most common basis of divorce and is a no fault basis for divorce. Other basis of divorce, which must be affirmatively proven in the divorce are adultery, extreme cruelty, willful desertion, willful neglect, habitual intemperance, conviction of a felony and insanity.

Property Division

Idaho is a community property state. This means that any property or debt that was acquired during the marriage is the property of both spouses. Any property acquired before marriage or by gift, bequest or is inherited is considered separate property. Separate property can become community property when it is transmuted, or gifted to the marital community, or co-mingled to the extent that its separate character is lost.

Spousal Support

In Idaho, there is a basis for seeking spousal support. It is not routinely awarded but can be sought in certain circumstances where a person lacks sufficient property to provide for their reasonable needs and is unable to support themselves through employment. Judges look at several factors when determining spousal support.

Child Custody and Support
