When children are affected by divorce, it is critical to secure an agreement that prioritizes their needs and circumstances. In Indiana, parents can share custody or receive sole custody rights.
Custody agreements include terms for legal and physical custody. Receiving legal custody allows a parent to make decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. Obtaining physical custody allows a parent to live with his or her child. When parents share custody, they must agree to terms that support their child’s best interests.
Child Support Negotiations
In addition to representing parents on custody matters, we help parents negotiate for fair child support terms. We explore all options when developing our negotiation strategy to ensure that your child’s financial needs are met today and in the years ahead.
Our attorneys are well-versed in Indiana custody support laws. We will aggressively pursue the terms you seek so that you can protect your relationship with your child and limit the impact your divorce has on your child’s life.
Should your child’s needs change or your financial circumstances alter, we are also qualified to petition for a post-judgment modification on your custody or support order.
Hague Convention And Other Special Custody Matters
At our full-service family law firm, we are qualified to address special custody matters, which include Hague Convention cases and custody disputes involving service members.
