The county clerk wanted me to fill out the portion where it asked for information about the minor child. I kept telling her that the adoptee is an adult and told her that the adoptee's information is on the other documents. She then crossed out the word child and then said I must fill in the...

The Idaho Rules of Family Law Procedure have a requirement that each litigant fill out a Family Law Case Information Sheet. If you don't want to adhere to the Family Law Procedure, the Clerk will reject your filings. Pretty simple.
I have plenty of people willing to take me in and pay for everything I need so i can focus on school. I feel there has to be a way for me to leave so I can do this. My parents keep acting like im lying to them and are forcing me to have a job while doing schoolwork. It is way too much for me and I... View More
In 4 months, you can leave and go where ever you want to go! However, under Idaho law until you’re 18 years old, you’re (lucky) still considered a “child,” and worthy of protection! Just try to be patient for four more months!
In Idaho there are now 2 types of "stay away" orders. The first is a NO CONTACT ORDER. There is no way to have one of these against you, unless you've been charged with committing a Domestic Battery charge. In other words, it comes attached with a criminal charge. The other...View 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...View More
Idaho law says that a parent may give someone their parental rights for upto six (6) months, without having to go to court. Many people do this. The fact that it wasn't notarized will not do anything for you, unless it is your belief that your signature was forged or that your spouse's...View More

A QDRO does not override a Divorce Decree, it merely directs the Plan Administrator on how to divide a 401k or military or state retirement. It's simply the "instructions" on how to do it. So, the answer is probably YES you would have the right at this point to get a large portion...View More
He won't get help and I fear for my life. Can we file something with his mental and start divorce? He wants to hurt me after 55 years of caring for him and it has come to this. I am truly scared of him. What are my rights?
Idaho Code allows a Petitioner to seek out a Civil Protection Order. All you need to do is go into the Clerk's Office and ask for Civil Protection papers, and the Clerk will give them to you. They might even have a "Court Assistance Office" to help you fill out the papers. Once...View More
My mom's ex is abusive towards her and my sisters. She "left him" but he still comes over. She's been charging my sisters rent. They are over 18. Do they then have a say in whether or not he's allowed at the house if the are paying rent? They feel unsafe with him around but... View More
There are several exemptions, credits and deductions in the tax code. The Idaho Child Support Guidelines, which are found in the new, Idaho Rules of Family Law Procedure, are confusing to say the least on this. Here are some points to consider:
Does the Stimulus Program dictate that only mother's with minor children at home will receive any money? I could be mistaken, and have been many times, but I don't think Congress created that program for ONLY single mothers, with minor children at home. Are you sure you're not...View More
Her mom has been in and out of jail and she doesn’t call or text only reason I know she’s not in jail is because I check her Facebook. But she has had ZERO contact since she was 4 months old. No contact no calls no money nothing.
Idaho used to have a statute that said that a parent who fail to have normal parent/child relationship for over one year without just cause was guilty of abandonment and subject to having rights terminated. I do not know personally why that law was abandoned by the Idaho legislature but it has...View More
My husband's drinking is out of control and endangering our child. He won't leave, and I think it's best for us to temporarily separate. Can this decision impact a later divorce, custody, or division of assets? What else should I consider before moving?
You can separate without having a formal Separation Order. In fact, if you file for Divorce, the law gives either of the parties the right to ask the court for a sort-of "time out," where the parties will be prohibited each from filing any kind of paper for a period of ninety (90) days,...View More

Your daughter is too young to have sex with a 21 year old man, period. IF the father permits them to live together, as "house mates," no foul. If the father allows them to sleep in the same bed, that is illegal and NO the girlfriend has NO liability, because she has NO rights to your...View More
Yes. Idaho has no statute of limitations for collecting child support. Suspending your DL is a Legislative creation. Chapter 12, Title 32. The limitation of 5 yrs. where did you get that? I have made a rather cursory check of the limitations of certain actions in Idaho, and unfortunately, I...View More
