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 the former, you and your spouse work together
to negotiate a settlement agreement out of court, making arrangements
for issues including:
In the latter, you 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, we can work tirelessly
to safeguard your best interests and achieve the outcome you deserve.
