Family law matters like divorce and custody can be emotionally charged. Life as you know it may be changing and protecting yourself and your children is essential. Our Idaho family law firm will handle your case with care and concern. We serve clients across the greater Boise area, in Boise, Caldwell, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa. Wherever you are, we are here to help.
Divorce is rarely a pleasant experience. Both parties involved will usually find that there is an emotional and financial toll to pay before the divorce is finalized. However, while a divorce is stressful, the agreements and decrees that are decided by the divorce proceedings are monumentally important for each person involved. These decisions could have a far-reaching effect on your lives, and for this reason, seeking representation from a divorce lawyer is always recommended. Our divorce lawyers in Meridian and Boise serve multiple purposes. They will ensure you know your rights and that they are protected, and they will also mediate, negotiate and, where necessary, litigate on your behalf. Divorce mediation ensures that divorce proceedings move with as little friction as possible and keeps the costs lower than they would be in a drawn-out contested divorce with no representation.
Your divorce lawyer will also offer legal guidance and will ensure that all paperwork is correctly filed and on time. Incorrect paperwork can delay proceedings, costing everyone time and money. Filing correctly and on time also has the benefit of looking good in the eyes of the court. Here at Idaho Divorce Law Firm, we handle all forms of divorce and have worked with clients going through uncontested divorces, no-fault divorce, military divorce, and high-asset divorce. We also cover all forms of family law matters, such as child custody, child support, adoption, spousal support, and guardianship cases.
Here at Idaho Divorce Law Firm, we dedicate much of our professional time to working with spouses and ex-spouses that are fighting for custody arrangements. Child custody can be one of the most emotionally charged family law issues, especially when it is paired with divorce proceedings. When it comes to decisions regarding children and their future, it is always best to seek representation from a skilled child custody lawyer in Idaho. Child custody arrangements should always be made with the children’s best interests at their core. The best way to formulate a child custody arrangement that is truly in the best interests of your children is through communication. Our experienced child custody lawyer will be able to help mediate and negotiate, creating space for you and your ex-spouse to discuss matters in a calm and productive manner.
In Idaho, legal guardianship refers to the legal ability to make important decisions on a person’s behalf. These decisions can include living arrangements, health care, education, and important financial decisions. Guardianship is normally appointed by the court, which means that there is a strict legal process that you must go through. The two main reasons that guardianship may be awarded are to look after minor children or an incapacitated person. Understanding the legal rights and laws that surround guardianship can be tricky, and this means that most people will benefit from obtaining legal representation. If you are seeking the appointment of guardianship, a guardianship attorney in Idaho will be able to help you put forward the strongest, most compelling case. Here at Idaho Divorce Law Firm, we have the experience and the skill to help you through the tasking process of obtaining guardianship.
There are few issues that are as contested in an Idaho divorce as the division of marital assets and debts. After years of marriage, finances and assets can be so entwined that it becomes difficult to divide them fairly and if one spouse has given up a career to look after children and one has become the primary earner, both may have different opinions on who deserves to be awarded what. If you are going through a divorce, we highly recommend that you obtain representation from a skilled divorce lawyer, one with experience in community property law and in dividing marital assets fairly. With their help, they can help you move through the process with as little friction as possible. We work hard to build a secure attorney-client relationship, one that inspires confidence in our abilities. From negotiations in family law cases to mediating over the contested issues of your divorce, we are ready to help.

If you are getting divorced and have minor children, or if you are a biological father but were never married to your child’s mother, an Idaho family law attorney can help you decide on child custody arrangements, including where your child will live, who can make decisions on his or her behalf, and whether child support must be paid by one parent to the other.
If you and your child’s other parent already have a Parenting Plan, but a change in your family circumstances necessitates a change to custody arrangements, our Idaho child custody lawyer can assist you with making modifications.
