Q 1. Is Idaho a no fault divorce state?

Idaho is a no fault divorce state. This means the court may grant a divorce based on a representation that there are “irreconcilable differences” between the spouses. There need be no other reasongiven to terminate the marriage. In states that are not no-fault divorce states, grounds must be given for the divorce to be granted by the court. Grounds would include something like infidelity and would require that one or both parties had done something wrong for the divorce to be finalized.

Q 2. What age in Idaho a child can choose which parent to live with?

Idaho child custody laws do not permit children under the age of 18 to make unilateral decisions about which parent they would prefer to live with. If the court must intervene in a custody issue, it will consider what is in the child’s best interest, which includes the child’s wishes. However, there are also many other determining factors, including the child’s relationship with both parents and any siblings in the family, the health of the child and both parents, each parent’s housing situation, the child’s education situation, and more.
