Idaho Juvenile Rule 38.  Stipulations (C.P.A.)

All or some of the parties may enter into stipulations as to any issue at any stage of a proceeding under the Child Protective Act.  Stipulations shall be made part of the court record, and are subject to court approval.  The court may enter orders or decrees based upon such stipulations only upon a reasonable inquiry by the court to confirm that the parties entered into the stipulation knowingly and voluntarily, that the stipulation has a reasonable basis in fact, and that the stipulation is in the best interest of the child.  Any order entered based on a stipulation must include all case-specific findings required by the state or federal statute or these rules.
