Indiana Divorce Law

Divorce is a major life transition that can have significant legal and personal implications. Indiana is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that a marriage can be dissolved without proving wrongdoing by either party. At Fritch Law Office, we assist clients with all aspects of the divorce process, including:

  1. Filing for Divorce: We guide you through the initial steps of filing for divorce, including preparing and submitting the necessary legal documents. We ensure that all paperwork is completed accurately and timely to prevent delays.
  2. Division of Assets and Debts: Indiana law requires an equitable distribution of marital assets and debts. Our attorneys work diligently to ensure a fair division, taking into account factors such as the length of the marriage, contributions of each spouse, and future financial needs.
  3. Child Custody and Support: Child custody and support are often the most contentious issues in a divorce. We advocate for your parental rights and work to develop a custody arrangement that serves the best interests of your children. We also assist in calculating and negotiating fair child support payments based on Indiana guidelines.
  4. Spousal Support: Spousal support may be awarded in special situations to one spouse based on various factors, including the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and their standard of living during the marriage. We help you understand your rights and obligations regarding spousal support.

Indiana Paternity Law

Establishing paternity is crucial for protecting the rights of both parents and children. Whether you are a mother seeking to establish paternity for child support purposes or a father seeking to assert parental rights, Fritch Law Office can help. Our services include:

  1. Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity: We assist with the voluntary acknowledgment process, where both parents agree on the paternity of the child. This process is straightforward and can be completed without court intervention.
  2. Paternity Testing: In cases where paternity is disputed, we help clients navigate the process of obtaining genetic testing to establish biological parentage.
  3. Legal Proceedings: If necessary, we represent clients in court to establish paternity. This may involve filing a paternity suit and presenting evidence to support the claim.
  4. Parental Rights and Responsibilities: Once paternity is established, we assist with issues related to child custody, visitation, and child support, ensuring that the rights and responsibilities of both parents are recognized and enforced.

Modification of Court Orders

Life circumstances can change significantly after a divorce or paternity judgment, necessitating modifications to existing court orders. At Fritch Law Office, we help clients seek modifications to custody, visitation, child support, and spousal support orders. Our services include:

  1. Child Custody and Visitation: If there has been a substantial change in circumstances, such as relocation, changes in the child’s needs, or changes in a parent’s situation, we can help you petition the court for a modification of custody or visitation arrangements.
  2. Child Support: Changes in income, employment status, or the needs of the child may warrant a modification of child support. We assist clients in filing for adjustments to ensure that child support payments remain fair and reflective of current circumstances.
