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.
