Nicholasville, KY asked in Divorce for Idaho

Q: Default divorce in Idaho, do I need to submit something after the CAO CV 7-1?

I have a question about divorce in Idaho. I have sent in all the forms, she was served and did not respond. I have submitted the CAO CV 7-1 and under Affidavit in Support of Default it has Comments: Decree of Divorce. However, it still says Active-Pending under status. I just want to make sure that all forms have been submitted, and I can not find definitive answers in the instructions/online to clarify. I was under the impression that a Decree of Divorce means the divorce is final, but is there a waiting period before a judge will enter the final decree?

A: Yes there is a 21 day waiting period. Let us know 3-5 days after that time passed. You should receive the Decree within that amount of time.
