Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 58(a). Entry of Judgment.
Subject to the provisions of Rule 54(b): (1) upon a general verdict of a jury, or upon a decision by the court that a party shall recover only a sum certain or costs or that all relief shall be denied, the court shall sign the judgment and the judgment shall be entered by the judge or clerk; (2) upon a decision by the court granting other relief, or upon a special verdict or a general verdict accompanied by answers to interrogatories, the court shall approve the form and sign the judgment, and the judgment shall be entered by the judge or the clerk. Every judgment and amended judgment shall be set forth on a separate document as required in Rule 54(a). The filing of a judgment by the court as provided in Rule 5(e) or the placing of the clerk's filing stamp on the judgment constitutes the entry of the judgment; and the judgment is not effective before such entry. The entry of the judgment shall not be delayed for the taxing of costs. The entry of judgment shall not be made in a divorce or annulment action unless and until the prevailing party furnishes to the clerk a completed certificate of divorce or annulment on a form furnished by the department of vital statistics. In addition, entry of judgment shall not be made as to any decree that contains the obligation for one party to pay child support unless and until it is accompanied by the completed transmittal form to the Department of Health and Welfare.
