Divorce and Your Future
Divorce is one of the most common family law issues. You may assume that when a marriage ends amicably, you don’t need a divorce lawyer. But even though Indiana courts offer all the forms you need to handle your own divorce, one small mistake could have serious consequences – once a divorce decree is final, it cannot be changed, and you’re most likely stuck with its terms.
You want to ensure the best possible outcome for your children, but also protect your financial well-being. Parents should never try to negotiate custody or support obligations without child custody lawyers, because the laws and guidelines can be difficult to interpret.
Family law is not just about divorcing people. Many areas of the law concern the family, and we can help you with all of it.
- Unmarried parents who split
- Paternity issues
- Surrogacy and assisted conception
- Same-sex marriage
- Estate planning
Myths and Misconceptions
Everyone knows someone who at one time or another has needed a divorce lawyer, needed assistance from child custody lawyers, or needed help from child support attorneys in order to mediate family law disputes. Attempting to settle such disputes alone can, and usually does, complicate matters even more. Why? Because your cousin’s divorce is different from yours. Your best friend’s custody battle was over entirely different issues than yours. Your mom’s co-worker’s niece may have gotten a raw deal on child support, but that doesn’t mean you will.
There is an abundance of false and incorrect information being thrown at you from every direction. Don’t rely on it. Call us and talk to a family law attorney who has been through it personally and professionally. Who knows the system and how it works because she’s immersed in it every day.
