Our divorce lawyers in Zionsville successfully represent clients in each of the following practice areas:

Skilled Zionsville Divorce Attorney

Our divorce attorneys in Zionsville know that no two marriages are alike, and neither are the circumstances that lead to their dissolution.

Spouses can file for divorce in Indiana without placing blame on the other spouse, or proving that he or she did anything wrong. As a no-fault divorce state, Indiana only requires spouses to state that their marriage is irretrievably broken to file for divorce.

Whether you are seeking a straightforward divorce where you and your spouse have already agreed to terms and simply need an attorney to review the agreement or are embroiled in a highly contested divorce that requires an aggressive and precise approach to creating solutions, our Zionsville divorce lawyers have the skill and experience to produce results.

Experienced Zionsville Child Support Lawyers

One of the very first things parents know about having children is that from birth through high school graduation (and beyond!), they are expensive. Whether it is their education, extra-curricular activities, day-to-day needs, or special needs, our child support attorneys in Zionsville will focus on the complete financial requirements necessary for their care now and going forward.

Children deserve to continue pursuing their best interests — whether through school or other activities — even though their parents are divorcing. Financial stability plays a large role in that commitment, and we strive to provide our client and their children with the opportunity to move forward in the lifestyle in which they are accustomed.

Dedicated Child Custody Attorneys in Zionsville

As experienced Zionsville child custody lawyers, we understand that where the child lives — and with which parent — will play a large role in the child support request we outline, which is why child support and custody are often outlined so closely together in our divorce petitions.

Although the courts will have the final say in who has partial, full, or joint custody of their children in Zionsville, it is our family attorney’s goal to provide the best outcome available for our clients and their kids, so they can continue to fully live their lives without disruption.

Divorces are hard on everyone involved, especially children. And depending on their ages, they may need different parenting plans that cater to their growth. We will outline your complete parenting capabilities, including your physical and mental health requirements, and the ability to provide a stable home for your kids to successfully build and strengthen your case.

Knowledgeable Spousal Support Attorneys in Zionsville

Unlike other states where spousal support is part of nearly all divorce proceedings, Indiana does not require alimony to be paid from one spouse to another after the marriage ends.

There are exceptions, which can include spousal maintenance being paid to a spouse temporarily or permanently based on extenuating circumstances, which can include:

  • A spouse who suffers from a physical or mental incapacitation
  • A custodial parent who is supporting a full-time special needs child that keeps the parent from being employed
  • A spouse who has left their career or no longer pursued their education to become a stay-at-home parent or homemaker

Although the latter exception is the least likely of the three, our client’s unique spousal support circumstances will be taken into consideration during each divorce we review, so no financial detail is left to chance.

Intelligent Zionsville Domestic Violence Lawyers

Our domestic violence attorneys in Zionsville represent clients who have been accused, arrested, and/or charged with harming their spouse or family member.

Unfortunately, heated events can be misconstrued, or even fabricated during a contentious divorce, to be domestic violence circumstances even when there is no evidence or proof that something physically harmful has happened.

This can lead to a police report being filed, an arrest, and even a conviction without the right domestic violence attorney in Zionsville by your side.

If you are going through a divorce, and have been accused of domestic violence, you must hire an experienced attorney right away to ensure your rights are protected and that the allegations are fully reviewed to mitigate the outcome.

Judges will show extreme judgment against any spouse who is accused of physically hurting the other, and any arrest or charge that backs up that claim could be detrimental to your divorce’s outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions For Our Zionsville Family Law Attorneys

How Long Is Child Support Paid in Indiana?

Child support in Indiana is payable until the child(ren) turn 19 years old and is emancipated by operation of law unless the child is physically or mentally incapacitated.

Can I Write My Own Divorce Agreement?

Depending on your unique circumstances, your divorce agreement may be complex and technical, especially if you have children. If you and your spouse can amicably outline your agreement to the best of your ability, it may save your time and money when hiring an attorney. However, you must consult with a Zionsville attorney before signing the agreement, so your rights and your best interests are protected before your divorce is finalized.

If My Ex-Spouse Is Behind On Child Support, Can I Keep Him/Her From Seeing Our Kids?

No. The courts focus on the importance of each parent having a relationship with their child, and even though he or she may be behind on child support, the child custody agreement must be upheld unless it is modified by the court.

Do Both Spouses Have To Live in Indiana to Get a Divorced?

One of the spouses must be a resident of Indiana for six months — and a resident of the county in which he or she is filing for three months — before filing for divorce.

How Do I Finalize My Indiana Divorce?

Once divorce specifics are agreed upon, and the six months in Indiana and three-month county time limits have passed, an Indiana divorce can be finalized through a final court hearing or by providing the court with a signed agreement showing all issues have been approved by both parties.
