Idaho Online divorce and legal services help keep clients safe during the current pandemic, but our online services predate COVID-19. These services help us reach our first goal: to provide affordable and accessible legal services to the public. Online services are about convenience for our clients. We understand our clients have lives to live and that the divorce process is challenging and distracting enough without having to take time off of work and head to an attorney’s office to have a conversation that could be done over the phone or online. In addition to online services, appointments can be made after-hours and during the weekend, if necessary. Customer service is about meeting our clients on their terms, not ours.
Our Idaho online divorce services are something that happened organically over time. Our attorney, Robert J. Taylor, started Taylor Law & Mediation PLLC in his hometown of Mountain Home, Idaho. What he didn’t realize at the time was a large number of his clients would be stationed all over the country and world as members of the United States Air Force. This was because of one of two reasons.
First, under Idaho Code 32-11-202, once an Idaho court has established jurisdiction over a child custody matter, the court retains exclusive, continuing jurisdiction of that matter until circumstances change that permit the court of another state to exercise jurisdiction over that child custody matter. This means that once Idaho has been established as the appropriate jurisdiction to hear a custody matter, it remains it until there is a need to change it. For the most part, as long as one parent remains in Idaho, Idaho will continue to be the child’s home state for child custody jurisdiction purposes. Members of the United States Air Force stationed at Mountain Home Air Force Base would get divorced in Mountain Home and then be reassigned to a different base while their former spouse and children remained in Mountain Home. After a period of time, if the military member wished to modify the child custody order or child support order, they would need to hire an attorney in Idaho to assist them as Elmore County continued to remain the court with jurisdiction over their case despite the fact they have moved out of Idaho.
The second reason was due to members of the Air Force getting divorced in another state or country and then their former spouses moving to Mountain Home. The military member would typically be reassigned to a base in a different state, typically allowing Idaho to exercise jurisdiction over the child custody case. Those military members would also need representation in Idaho, where their former spouse and children reside, though they lived in a different state or even a foreign country.
A large number of potential clients in these situations would contact Taylor Law & Mediation PLLC for representation. Our attorney quickly realized that he needed to adapt to accommodate these service members from anywhere in the world without sacrificing quality or customer service. Robert served his clients and helped them obtain the results they were looking for, often without even meeting them or the client ever having to travel to Idaho. After a couple of years, he started looking for ways to expand online services to all of his clients and realized he could offer the same quality service he offers to military members spread out across the country to clients located anywhere in Idaho.
