You had it all and now you'll be lucky if you can settle for half.

That's the way the nuptials crumble in an Idaho divorce. We know it's not easy, and it’s even more complicated when it comes to splitting assets and property.

If you're ready to split from your spouse, the best thing you can do for yourself is to understand the state’s community property laws that govern how property and assets are divided.

Idaho Community Property Laws

There's no "I" in assets. According to Idaho law, all property acquired by either spouse after the marriage is considered community property.

This means that any assets or property acquired during the marriage will be split equally between the two individuals in the event of a divorce. As stated in Chapter 9, 32-906, community property in Idaho includes all property acquired, as well as income generated by it after the marriage.

Debt: the ass-end of assets

It’s important to note that Idaho’s community property law applies to all property, including houses, cars, bank accounts, retirement accounts, investments, and any other assets acquired during the marriage.

The law also includes any debts incurred during the marriage, which means that both spouses are responsible for paying off any debt incurred during the marriage.

Dividing assets isn't always 50/50. 

If a divorcing couple has to go to court, an Idaho judge will determine how to divide the community property equally. However, it's important to understand that equal doesn't necessarily mean an exact 50/50 split.

The judge will consider several factors, such as the economic circumstances of each spouse, the length of the marriage, and each spouse's contribution to the acquisition of the assets.

Hire a divorce attorney!

Even if you think you don't need one, trust us, you do. It's important to have an attorney at your side to help you navigate the complexities of an Idaho divorce and its community property laws.

An experienced attorney can help protect your rights and interests throughout the divorce process. They can also help ensure that all assets and property have been properly identified, valued, and divided fairly.

If you're ready to call it a quits with your bitter half, do yourself a favor and get a feel for how they're handled in the Gem State before you sign or agree to ANYTHING.
