Indianapolis Divorce Attorney
Let Bowen & Associates, LLC Protect Your Interests in Divorce
A strong and healthy marriage is a beautiful thing... when it works. When
it doesn't, a broken marriage can be devastating on multiple levels
to all parties involved. Nobody who gets married ever expects to divorce—but
when the marriage becomes unbearable, divorce may be the best solution
for the spouses, their children, and others.
Are you are contemplating filing for divorce? Have you learned that your
spouse wants to divorce? If so, then it is critical to retain counsel
early in the process to work toward protecting your physical, emotional,
and financial well-being.
Contact Bowen & Associates, LLC, where our Indianapolis divorce attorneys have more than 10 years of experience
helping people with every aspect of the divorce process.
Divorce Basics in Indiana
Grounds for Divorce
In previous eras, it was necessary for anyone who wanted to file for divorce
to first be able to prove that he or she had grounds to do so. Now, Indiana
is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that it is possible to file for divorce
without having to demonstrate that either spouse is responsible for the
failure of the marriage. Instead, you can file for divorce on the grounds
of the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.
It is also possible to file based on the fact that your spouse has been
convicted of a felony; that he or she has been impotent since the time
of the marriage; or that he or she has suffered from incurable insanity
for at least two years.
Filing for Divorce
When you are ready to move forward with your divorce, you will have to
go about the action in one of two ways:
uncontested divorce or contested divorce.
In uncontested divorce cases, you and your spouse work together to negotiate
a settlement agreement out of court, making arrangements for issues including:
In contested divorce cases, you will need to go to court and engage in
litigation against your spouse, making arguments and introducing evidence
with the goal of persuading the judge to rule in your favor. In either
scenario, our Indianapolis divorce attorney can work tirelessly to safeguard
your best interests and achieve the outcome you deserve.
