Child Custody

When determining custody, Indiana courts are guided by the best interests of the child and consider such important factors as the parents' preferences, the relationship of the child with each parent and other family members, the child's adjustment to the child's home, school, and community, the mental and physical health of all parties involved, and any other factors the court deems as significant.

Generally, there are two basic forms of custody in Indiana - legal custody and physical custody, and each of them can be granted either to one parent or both. Legal custody concerns the right of a parent to make important decisions in a child's life. When joint legal custody is awarded, the spouses have to negotiate when it comes to the child's education, health, travelings, etc. If parents have joint physical custody, the children spend about equal time with each parent.

Indiana courts welcome joint custody arrangements unless it is proven to be harmful to the child. Awarding shared legal or physical custody, the court typically takes into account each spouse's parenting skills and ability to negotiate and cooperate with the other parent.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Indiana-based company. So that's why I used OnlineIndianaDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found onlineindianadivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
