Divorce is an intricate process that can be both emotionally and legally challenging. The laws and regulations surrounding divorce vary from state to state, making it even more complex. In the state of Indiana, the process has its unique requirements and timelines. As experienced Munster divorce attorneys at Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, we have a keen understanding of Indiana’s divorce laws and are equipped to guide you through this challenging journey. Depend on us for support every step of the process.
In Indiana, couples can receive a no-fault divorce. A no-fault divorce implies that neither party is blamed for the breakdown of the marriage. You will not be required to show wrongdoing by the other party, but instead can file for reasons such as irreconcilable differences.
In Indiana, the legal proceedings for a divorce commence with the filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage. This petition outlines the terms the petitioner seeks, such as asset division, child custody, and more. Following the filing of the petition, Indiana law mandates a 60-day waiting period before the court can finalize the divorce.
Our practice areas encompass a wide range of legal issues, including criminal defense, estate planning, family law, immigration, personal injury, and real estate. However, in the context of divorce, the primary areas of concern typically revolve around the division of assets, child custody arrangements, child support, and spousal support.
Understanding how these factors work is critical in preparing for what lies ahead. For instance, Indiana follows an “equitable distribution” system for property division in divorce cases. This means the court divides marital property in a manner deemed fair but not necessarily equal.
Child custody and support are other vital aspects of divorce proceedings. Indiana courts prioritize the best interest of the child when determining custody arrangements. Child support calculations adhere to the Indiana Child Support Guidelines, considering both parents’ incomes, the number of children, and other relevant factors.
Additionally, it’s essential to understand your legal rights and obligations during a divorce. All parties involved have the right to fair treatment during the proceedings and obligations such as providing full financial disclosure and adhering to court orders.
At Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, we adopt a cooperative approach to resolve issues of custody, support, parenting time, and property division amicably, aiming to avoid future court disputes. However, if a case goes to trial, our team comprises experienced trial attorneys who fully understand local divorce law and family court protocol.
