Filing Requirements for Online Divorce in Indiana

In Indiana, divorces are handled by the Judicial Branch of Indiana. To file for divorce independently without involving an expensive lawyer, a couple can download the necessary forms and fill them out. Then, if spouses need help with documents, they can turn to OnlineIndianaDivorce.

Also, the couple should meet residency requirements. Finally, when preparing divorce forms, ex-partners must clearly state the legal grounds for divorce.

In Indiana, spouses can file for a no-fault or fault divorce. Depending on which type of divorce a couple chooses, the legal grounds for divorce will also differ.

No-Fault Grounds for Divorce

In Indiana, a no-fault divorce is the "irretrievable breakdown" of a marriage. If there is no opportunity for reconciliation, the court allows divorce on this basis.

Fault-Based Grounds for Divorce

Among the grounds under which one spouse accuses the other of wrongdoing are the following:

  • Felony conviction — if one of the parties is convicted after marriage for a criminal offense.
  • Impotence — if impotence existed at the time of marriage.
  • Incurable insanity — mental illness for at least two years.

The couple has the following options to file for divorce in Indiana:

  1. Spouses can file online through efile.incourts.gov or courtfiling.net/efile/indiana/ ;
  2. A couple can send papers by mail to the court;
  3. Spouses can come to court in person and file divorce documents;
  4. Ex-partners can use the additional services of OnlineIndianaDivorce for filing documents with the court.

Do-It-Yourself Divorce in Indiana

For a do-it-yourself divorce in Indiana, a couple must go through the following steps.

1. Meet the residency requirements.

For an Indiana court to have jurisdiction, the spouses must comply with the residency rules. One spouse needs to live in Indiana for at least six months, and the divorce must be filed in the county where one of the spouses lives.

2. Give legal grounds for divorce.

Indiana is a no-fault divorce state. However, the state also allows divorce on limited "fault" grounds: impotence, insanity, and felony conviction.

3. Prepare all necessary forms.

If the couple wants to file for a divorce without a divorce lawyer, they can download the appropriate forms and fill them out using the instructions available online. Alternatively, the spouses can get required copies of the documents from the clerk at the local court.

4. Serve a respondent.

The plaintiff can give copies of documents to the defendant in three ways:

  • By certified mail;
  • By private process service company;
  • By sheriff.

Each county has different preferred methods, so it is best to check with the county court clerk before serving the forms.

5. Attend the final hearing and finalize the divorce.

60 days after the initial filing, an applicant can file the Motion and Notice with the court clerk for the final hearing. The judge may decide immediately, or the final decree may be sent later by mail.

We provide you with:
  • All Required Indiana State Forms
  • Indiana-Specific Court Filing Instructions
  • Unlimited Revisions for as long as your account is active

Getting a Divorce With Children in Indiana

When a couple gets divorced in Indiana, they not only have to deal with alimony issues with an agreement but also with child custody and child support if they have minor children.

There are two types of child custody in Indiana — physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody is a decision about who the child will live with, while legal custody is about which parent has the right to make decisions. Before determining custody, the court considers the child’s best interests based on the following:

  • Age and gender of the child;
  • Information about wishes of both parents;
  • The wishes of the child themselves, if they are 14 years old;
  • Relationships of the child with parents, siblings, and any other vital persons;
  • Adaptation of the child at home and school because of parents' separation;
  • The physical and mental health of all parties involved (presence or absence of counseling sessions);
  • Cases of family or domestic violence by parents;
  • The child has a guardian.

When it comes to child support, parents in Indiana must support their children until they are 19 years old. The court determines the amount based on the following factors:

  • The weekly income of both spouses;
  • The number of nights spent by a child with a non-custodial parent;
  • Work-related childcare costs;
  • Evidence of children subsequently born or other support obligations, etc.

Residency Requirements in IN

To file for divorce in Indiana, spouses must meet two residency requirements:

  1. At least one spouse must either live in Indiana or be at a military base in Indiana for six months before filing for divorce;
  2. At least one spouse has been living in or at an army base in the county where the petition is being filed for three months immediately before filing for divorce.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Indiana?

There is a 60-day waiting period before the court will grant a final decree ending the marriage. So, it takes at least 60 days before the court can finalize a divorce in Indiana. Once the divorce is filed, the court can issue temporary orders, but the actual divorce cannot be completed until 60 days have passed from the date that the divorce was filed.

The process was fast and relatively straight forward. If there are any portions you want to personalize then you need to right a rough draft and wait until the next day to submit.

Frequently Asked Questions

First, the spouses must meet the residency requirements and complete the court forms. Then, the couple files the papers at the clerk of court's office. The next step is to serve the documents to the defendant. Finally, after waiting 60 days, the court sets a date for a hearing.

The filing fee for a divorce in Indiana is $157. On average, divorce lawyers in Indiana charge between $175 and $270 an hour. The total costs for divorce proceedings involving an attorney average about $10,000.

If spouses can't afford to pay the filing fees, they can ask the judge to waive the fees. They can request a waiver by filing a Verified Motion for Fee Waiver. If the court grants the request to waive fees, the couple will not have to pay any court costs, such as filing fees or fees for issuance.

Couples can find all the necessary blank forms on divorce-forms.net/indiana or can request the required documents from the court clerk of the district where they live. They can also use OnlineIndianaDivorce to generate ready-to-sign forms within two business days.

Once the required divorce papers are completed, they must be filed at the clerk’s office in the appropriate county or online using the efile.incourts.gov or courtfiling.net/efile/indiana/.

Indiana has both fault and no-fault grounds for divorce. Grounds without fault include the "irretrievable breakdown" of marriage, and grounds with fault include a conviction for a criminal offense, impotence, and incurable insanity for at least two years.

Indiana is a "one-pot" property division state, so the court begins any case with the presumption that all property is the property of both spouses and should be divided equally. However, many factors can affect this (for example, debts), and the final division doesn't need to be equal.
