I don’t want to go through child support to calculate,we want to solve our issues regarding financial support for our children amicably, can we go about that without further action from child support?

Nope. By applying for Idaho benefits, Idaho has a "vested interest," in making sure that whatever monies it has provided you, are paid back. That means that whatever you and your husband thought you had decided, may be okayed by the Court, but the Department of Health and Welfare,... Read more »
She was born in Idaho, but she's lived in Nevada with me since May 2021, for all but 5 months since then. I have proof that she has been living with me in Nevada since then. Doesn't that make her a legal Nevada resident? Can he legally file for custody in Idaho?

If he files in Idaho, he is required to list all of the places your daughter has lived in the last five (5) years. If he lies on the Petition, an Idaho judge will likely reject the filing. Plus, you are required to receive a copy of what he files and on his Petition, there... Read more »

If I were you I would file a Petition for Guardianship. The Court will require the mother to be there before it makes a decision. If the Court grants your petition, you will step artificially into the shoes of the bio mother in making all decisions on behalf of the child. Good luck to you!
