We Understand What You’re Going Through…

Going through a divorce is an emotionally challenging and complex process that requires guidance and support from a compassionate and experienced legal professional.

At our law firm, we understand the sensitive nature of divorce cases and the impact they can have on your life and family.

With years of experience, we have successfully represented countless clients in all aspects of divorce, including child custody, property division, alimony, and more.

We are committed to advocating for our clients’ best interests and achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

FAMILY LAW SERVICES WE OFFER

From child custody arrangements to financial security after separation or something else entirely — we offer compassionate care through all aspects of your case that will put you at ease during this complex process.

Divorce

We believe that it’s not enough to just provide legal representation – we also strive to be a true advocate for our clients and provide them with the support and guidance they need to move forward.

Mediation

Mediation allows you and your spouse to have more control over the outcome, and can often be less stressful and less expensive than going to court.

Child Custody & Support

We leave no stone unturned in making sure that we fight for your desired outcome, while also trying to reach an amicable settlement between both parties.

Property Division

The first step in the property division process is identifying all of the assets and debts that are subject to division. Then assessing their value.

Separation

No two separations are exactly the same, so we work closely with our clients to develop personalized solutions tailored to their individual needs.

Alimony

In some situations, one spouse needs financial support from the other to survive. This can be difficult and stressful to handle these situations without experienced legal help.

Prenuptial Agreements

People often wonder if they really need a prenuptial agreement since it may seem like planning for divorce. Our experience has shown that couples who plan ahead tend to be better equipped to handle any future difficulties that may arise in their marriage.

Father’s Rights

Many fathers have misconceptions about their rights regarding their children’s custody and lives. Despite popular belief, fathers have the same rights as mothers concerning their children. 

Grandparents’ Rights

Despite the importance of maintaining relationships between grandparents and grandchildren, many people wrongfully assume that grandparents have no legal rights regarding visitation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get a divorce in Indiana?

The waiting period to get a divorce in Indiana depends on whether the divorce is contested or uncontested.

  1. Uncontested Divorce: If both parties agree on all issues, including property division, child custody, and support, there is no waiting period for an uncontested divorce in Indiana. The court can grant the divorce as soon as all necessary documents are filed and processed.
  2. Contested Divorce: In a contested divorce where the parties cannot reach an agreement on all issues, Indiana imposes a waiting period. The waiting period is typically 60 days from the date of filing the divorce petition. This waiting period is designed to allow spouses time to reconsider and potentially work out their differences. However, it's important to note that the actual resolution of a contested divorce may take longer, depending on the complexity of the case and court schedules.

 

What are the residency requirements for getting a divorce in Indiana?

1. Indiana Residency:

  • Either you or your spouse must be a resident of Indiana, or stationed at a U.S. military installation within the state, for at least six months preceding the filing of the divorce petition.

2. County Residency:

  • The divorce action should be filed in the county where either you or your spouse has lived for at least three months prior to filing the petition.

Meeting both the state and county residency requirements is essential for the court to have jurisdiction over the divorce case.

How is child custody decided in a divorce?

Child custody is determined by considering the best interests of the child, which may include factors such as the child's age, health, and relationships with each parent.

How much child support will I have to pay?

Child support is calculated based on a variety of factors, including the income of each parent, the number of children, and the child's needs.

How long does a divorce take?

The length of a divorce can vary depending on the complexity of the case and whether the parties can agree on the terms of the divorce. Some divorces can be completed in a few months, while others can take years.

Do I need a lawyer to get a divorce?

While it is possible to get a divorce without a lawyer, it is often recommended to hire a lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected and that the divorce process goes smoothly.

How much will a divorce cost?

The cost of a divorce can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case, the length of the proceedings, and the hourly rate of the attorney. Some divorces may cost only a few thousand dollars, while others can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
