Our team has the experience to know how to address the many issues that may arise during your divorce, such as child custody, child support, visitation, property rights, property division, alimony and the recovery of attorney’s fees.

Guardians are appointed for minors and incapacitated adults. A minor may need a guardian appointed if the minor’s parents are deceased or otherwise unable to care for the child. Adults may become incapacitated due to mental illness, brain damage, physical problems, dementia, or a host of other causes. In such cases, a court must be asked to appoint a guardian to be responsible for the person and property of a minor.
When a judge makes a legal ruling, it binds all of the parties involved. On occasion, however, one or the parties disregards the court’s orders or strays from the court’s intended plan. In these cases, Idaho law gives the judge the power to enforce his or her legal ruling. Two of the methods that can be used to enforce a legal ruling are “contempt” and “enforcement.”
