SOUTHERN INDIANA PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT SERVICES

Are you feeling anxious about the possibility of getting divorced before you’re even married?

Do you worry that your future spouse may be more interested in your assets than your love?

We understand that the thought of a prenuptial agreement can be unsettling, but it can also provide peace of mind and financial security.

Ponder This For A Moment…

Getting married is a joyous occasion, but it can also be a time of anxiety and uncertainty, especially when it comes to finances.

If you or your partner have significant assets or debts, or if you own a business, you may be concerned about how a divorce could impact your financial future.

Without a prenuptial agreement, you could be at risk of losing assets that are important to you, or being held liable for debts that you did not incur.

The Time to Protect Your Assets is BEFORE You Get Married

The thought of losing what you have worked so hard for can be extremely stressful, and can make it difficult to enjoy your engagement and look forward to your wedding day.

The uncertainty about what will happen if you get divorced can lead to arguments and tension with your partner, and can cause you to feel anxious and overwhelmed.

What You Can Do Now

A prenuptial agreement can provide peace of mind and financial security by outlining how assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce.

With a prenuptial agreement in place, you can protect your assets, limit your liability for debts, and ensure that you are not left with financial obligations that you did not agree to.

A prenuptial agreement can also help you and your partner have open and honest conversations about finances, which can lead to a stronger and more trusting relationship.

Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

Legal separation is a formal process that allows you and your spouse to live apart while remaining legally married.

During this time, the court can issue orders regarding spousal support, child custody, and property division, among other things. We provide legal separation services that include:

Protects Your Assets

A prenuptial agreement can help ensure that assets you bring into the marriage, such as property, investments, and inheritance, are protected in the event of a divorce.

Limits Your Liability

A prenuptial agreement can also limit your liability for debts that your spouse incurred before the marriage, protecting you from financial obligations that you did not agree to.

Provides Peace of Mind

By having a prenuptial agreement in place, you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your financial future is secure.

You can focus on building your relationship with your partner, rather than worrying about what will happen if things don’t work out.

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.
