You are not alone. With every step of your divorce, you attorney is with you.

What is a Simple Uncontested Divorce?

In a simple uncontested divorce one party retains an attorney to draft all of the documents. Prior to having the divorce attorney draft the documents both spouses agree to the terms of the divorce including, among other things, property division, child custody and child support.

A simple uncontested divorce is a cost effective way to work through the divorce process, however, you and your spouse must work together and negotiate the terms of the divorce. If there are minor children involved, both spouses will likely have to attend a parenting class. The divorce is usually final within 2 to 3 months from the filing of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. Call for a FREE telephone consultation with one of our divorce attorneys.

It is important to note that Jill & JR do NOT represent both parties in a Simple Uncontested Divorce. They only represent the party who has retained their services. It is advisable that both parties seek representation to ensure his or her rights are being enforced.

Child Custody

For many parents, child custody and parenting time problems create a great amount of unease. Basically in Indiana courts will resolve any dispute about child custody and parenting time according to the best interests of the children involved.

Child Support

Child support comes with rights and responsibilities.  Normally the non-custodial parent pays the parent with primary physical custody a monthly amount which is more or less fixed by the Indiana Child Support Guidelines.

Division of Assets

Indiana law creates a presumption that each party to a marriage is entitled to 50% of the marital property. This presumption can vary, but in most cases, each party is awarded 50% of the marital property and 50% of the marital debt.
