Idaho Rules of Civil Procdure Rule 60(c) - Proceedings to Modify Child Custody or Child Support Orders. 

Except as otherwise provided by these rules, a motion to modify child custody or child support orders shall be served and adjudicated in substantially the same manner as an original proceeding, but the filing of a motion to modify child custody or child support orders shall not be deemed the commencement of an action under Idaho Code Section 5-404. The motion shall be in a form similar to a complaint, served with a notice directing the opposing party to file a written response within twenty (20) days, or default may be entered, with or without hearing. The judge, in the judge's discretion, may require a hearing. The method of service and return thereon shall be the same as for a summons.
