Not all marriages last, and if you are starting to consider a divorce, your first step should be to seek help from an experienced divorce attorney. In Indiana, like most states, divorces are “no-fault” and based upon an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Few people fully know what to expect from the divorce process. Once you have some facts and answers, you’ll be able to find your way out of a failed or unhealthy relationship.
Our capable divorce attorneys will explain to you the details involved with:
A married person who does not wish to file for divorce has the option in Indiana to file a Petition for Legal Separation. The purpose of a Legal Separation is to give the couple time to live apart from their spouse, with the hope they work on the marriage and reach a happy reconciliation. The separation can be in effect for a period of one year. During that time, either partner may change the Separation to a Dissolution of Marriage action.
Divorce affects your financial future, children, living arrangements, and family life. The choices you and your spouse make during this process will impact the lives of you and your family for many years to come. As experienced Indiana divorce attorneys, we will guide you through decisions and disputes using a “cooperative approach” process.
Studies have found that the more parties are able to come to agreements on their issues of custody, support, parenting time and property division, the less likely it is that they will be back in court in the future on post-dissolution issues. In a cooperative approach, the lawyers and the parties will work together in an attempt to resolve the outstanding issues amicably leaving the control and decision making in the hands of the parties, rather than the court.
Obviously, agreements cannot be reached in each and every case. In those instances, the attorneys at Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP will work to represent your best interests throughout the process and in court.
