Divorce in Indiana

Helping Clients Achieve Their Divorce Goal

For some people, divorce is a painful, unwanted separation. For others, it is an opportunity to make a fresh start after a marriage that hasn't worked out. But under any circumstances, going through divorce can be stressful.

Thankfully, Indiana has a relatively straightforward divorce process. Due in part to our state's high divorce rate, the courts and legislators have produced a system that is fairly efficient, especially when experienced divorce lawyers are involved.

I am attorney Lawrence C. Arany, a certified Indiana family law specialist, and I help clients pursue effective divorce solutions. If you are considering divorce, contact me at my offices in Indianapolis to discuss how I can help.

Handling All Aspects of Dissolving a Marriage

There are many complex aspects of Indiana divorce law, but the following are among the most prominent issues that come up in divorce cases:

  • Property division: The distribution of property and other assets between spouses can become a tricky issue, but an experienced attorney can usually help you work out a resolution.
  • Child custody and support: Providing for the future care and support of children is one of the most crucial aspects of the divorce process. The best interests of the child must always come first.
  • Divorce modifications: Many aspects of divorce, particularly child custody and support, can be revisited at a later date if the underlying circumstances change.

I work hard to clarify the issues and pursue fair settlements in all aspects of divorce. If it is necessary to go to court to assert your rights against an unreasonable spouse, I am highly experienced at trial as well.

Guiding You Through the Indiana Divorce Process

The minimum amount of time for a divorce in Indiana is 60 days. In my experience, most uncontested divorces take about 90 days, and most contested divorces take about a year. This is a relatively fast process compared to many other states.

Judges and commissioners who hear most family law cases are highly experienced at sorting out divorce issues, and attorneys who specialize in family law know the law and what they can expect to accomplish. All of this means it is generally helpful to get competent legal help to guide you through the divorce process. To discuss your options when you are considering divorce in Indiana, don't hesitate to contact me.
