Apps may aid co-parenting

If you are getting divorced from your spouse in Indiana and you have young children together, you are no doubt wondering how in the world you will be able to work together to raise your kids when you could not find a way to stay married. Certainly, coparenting can be a challenge for divorced couples regardless of how long they have been divorced but especially for newly divorced people. 

New bill would widen grandparents' rights

The grandparent/grandchild relationship typically is a very special one with a positive impact on both sides of the relationships. Grandparents in Indiana would likely agree that these relationships are as important to them as they are to the grandchild. When a child’s parents decide to divorce, it is natural to have concerns about whether this special tie will continue—or be allowed to continue.

Cars collide in custody dispute

Feuding couples looking to get a divorce in Indianapolis may think that such an action effectively ends their associations with each other. However, that may rarely be the case. If a couple has children together, then they may have to continue to work together to sort out the issue of child custody. Given the level of emotion that the parties in a divorce case already may feel towards each other (coupled with the love that both may have for their children), it may be easy to see why child custody cases can become so contentious. The hope is that parents can keep such contention between themselves and not involve the kids.

Modifying a child support obligation in Indiana

Most divorcees in Indianapolis likely have no issue paying child support. Their love for their kids (along with their desire to ensure that the kids have all that they need) often prompts such parents to want to continue to support them. However, as time passes, one's financial circumstances may change. For example, a father paying child support might see his working hours reduced, resulting in a cut to his income. How is he, then, to continue to meet his child support obligation while also supporting himself (as well as any new dependents he now may have)? 

What is the fathers' rights movement?

Gone are the days when divorcing fathers in Indiana and elsewhere could automatically expect courts to award full custody of children to their mother. As the fathers’ rights movement of the past several decades has become more and more visible, it has also advanced the case for shared custody, and today’s family court decisions reflect these ongoing societal changes. That does not mean that shared custody is a given, however. Fathers still need to assert their interests, and their rights, in remaining a part of their children’s lives.
