Filing:

When you use OnlineDivorce.com, we help you fill out your divorce paperwork using a simple online questionnaire. You can fill it out alone or with the assistance of your spouse. Then, you will need to get a signature from your spouse and you can file the divorce forms with your local court. In Indiana, you will typically file with the courthouse in the county in which you currently reside. If a petitioner is not currently a resident, but a defendant is, divorce is typically filed in the county where the defendant resides.

The actual filing process is explained in our detailed court-filing instructions that we provide along with your completed divorce forms. You can also obtain assistance from your local courthouse by calling or stopping by.

After the initial filing, you may need to follow up if there are any issues with your documents. When you use OnlineDivorce.com, we allow you to make small adjustments to your forms as requested by the court at no additional charge. Our goal is to help you obtain your divorce with as little hassle and stress as possible using our online divorce documents preparation service.

Residency:

Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency within the state they are divorcing. Indiana is no exception.

At least one of the two spouses must have have an established residency in the state for at least six months and in the county in which the petition will be filed for three months before the divorce can be filed. [Annotated Indiana Code; Title 31, Article 15, Chapter 2-6].

There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and in-date Indiana driver’s license, ID card or voter’s registration card which was issued at least six months before filing for divorce. If this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency, by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six months. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form, and it should serve as proof you’ve lived in the state a minimum of six months.

OnlineDivorce reviews

Wesley H., Missouri

I started my divorce on my own, spending loads of money on lawyer visits in the beginning. So I decided to google for other ways and using this site was so much more simple!

James V., Texas

I had a very successful business at the time. So, making sure I had the right forms was very very important during my divorce. I was so surprised at how easy and smooth this process was.

Chloe J., Florida

After years of a tumultuous marriage, I finally decided that I needed to reclaim my life. I was looking for how to go about it and came across this site and they simplified and made the process of divorce easy for me. I never thought it would’ve been possible.

Will S., Colorado

Stress-free and easy! I was initially gonna hire a lawyer but I found online divorce the next best option. No muss, no fuss divorce. No big legal words that I’d have to have read 10 times to understand!

Marco P., California

California is expensive and divorce can be even more expensive in the end but I can say that this site payed everything out for me to follow, from child support to alimony. My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.

Tamara B., Nevada

Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out. Thank you.

Theresa S., New York

I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce. I was all out of whack, needed answers to take action. Enough was enough so I did it on this site. Everything was clear to understand, all forms and what to put in which box.

Livy B., Illinois

Onlinedivorce.com is the bomb! I mean, using it was so easy to follow. So, if you find yourself in this situation do your divorce here if possible. Documents for all stages, alimony, child support and all!

Custody of the child in Indiana

Custody of the child

Joint legal or sole custody is sometimes granted. It will be based on what is considered to be in the best interests of children, and will be based on the following factors:

  • The age and gender of the children;
  • The wishes of the children if of sufficient maturity;
  • The desires of the parents;
  • The children’s relationship and adjustment to their home, school, and community;
  • The health of all individuals involved; and
  • The relationship the children have with parents, siblings, and other family members.

Joint custody can be awarded if it is deemed to be in the best interest of the child based upon the following factors:

  • The geographical proximity of the parents as relating to practical considerations of where the child will stay on any given day;
  • The fitness of the parents to provide a stable home environment;
  • The nature of the environment of the home of each of both parents;
  • The ability and willingness of the spouses awarded joint custody to work together in advancing the child’s health and happiness;
  • The wishes of the child if of sufficient maturity and age; and
  • Whether the children have built a close relationship with both parents who would be awarded joint custody. [Annotated Indiana Code; Title 31, Article 17, Chapters 2-8, 2-8.5, and 2-15].

Rules for child support in Indiana

The standard child support guidelines of Indiana apply in almost every case, barring extraordinary circumstances. The parents’ gross incomes and expenses are considered when calculating child support. Child support continues until the child reaches the age of majority or completes high school In some cases it may extend through a college education.

Either parent can be required to pay child support, this is without regard to fault, based on these factors:

  • A standard of living the child may have enjoyed if there was no divorce;
  • The conditions and educational needs of the child; and
  • The financial resources and obligations of both parents.

Sup­port may include medical, hospital, dental, and educational support. Support payments may be paid through the clerk of the court in some cases. Specific Indiana State Child Support Rules and Guidelines are contained in the Indiana Supreme Court Child Support Rules. [Annotated Indiana Code; Title 31, Article 15, Chapter 6].

Rules for spousal support in Indiana

Rules for spousal support

Maintenance, which is also known as alimony, will be awarded to a spouse who:

  • Is physically or mentally incapacitated to an extent that he or she cannot support himself or herself or
  • Does not have sufficient property to support himself or herself and an incapacitated child and he or she must pass on employment in order to care for the incapacitated child.

In Indiana, when it comes to spousal support, marital fault is not a factor. Additionally, rehabilitative maintenance is sometimes granted to a spouse for a period of three years, according to the following factors:

  • Any time or expense needed to find education and training that would enable the spouse to find appropriate employment;
  • The educational level of each party during marriage and when the divorce is filed;
  • Whether an education, training, or employment of a spouse is interrupted during the marriage as a result of homemaking or childcare responsibilities and
  • The earning capacity of each divorcing party, to include educational background, training, employable skills, experience, and duration of presence or absence from the career. [An­notated Indiana Code; Title 31, Article 15, Chapter 7].

Property division in Indiana

Property division

One of the most challenging aspects of deciding to dissolve a marriage is determining how property (including the family home, if applicable) will be distributed. When a couple divorces in Indiana, the court will distribute wealth in a fair, legally-mandated and agreeable manner. This can be a challenging proposition. When the couple can agree upon how to distribute property on their own, without involving the court, this leads to an uncontested divorce and speeds up matters making for a much smoother divorce.

Indiana is considered an “equitable distribution” state. The court divides all of the couples’ property without regard to whether it was acquired before or after the marriage, except for any gifts and inheritances received before or during the marriage. A selection of the property can be set aside to create a fund for support, maintenance, and education of children of the marriage. With regards to property distribution in Indiana, marital fault is not a factor. The following factors may be considered in the division of property within the state:

  • The contribution that each spouse made to acquiring said marital property, including the contribution as a homemaker or in childcare;
  • The value of property brought into the marriage;
  • The contribution that a spouse made towards the education, training, or enhanced earning capacity of the other spouse;
  • The duration of the marriage;
  • The current age as well as the physical, mental and emotional wellness of the spouses;
  • Any vocational skills of the spouses;
  • The time and expense spent to acquire any skills and training to become self-sufficient;
  • The federal income tax consequences from the court’s division of the property;
  • Any pre marital or marital agreement;
  • The current and future earning capacity of the two spouses, which may include education, training, skills, experience, and absence from the job market;
  • Whether any property awarded is instead of, or in addition to, marital maintenance and the amount and length of any such award;
  • The total financial circumstances of both spouses, including a pension;
  • The desire to award the family home to the spouse who has custody of the children;
  • Custodial provisions for the children;
  • The amount and length of maintenance payments; and
  • Other factors deemed relevant by the Indiana state court.

If there is not sufficient marital property, the court may decide to award money to either spouse as a reimbursement for any financial contribution made by one spouse to the higher education of the other. [Annotated Indiana Code; Title 31, Article 15, Chapter 7].

When you begin the process of filling out your divorce questionnaire using OnlineDivorce.com, you’ll receive more information about property distribution and the steps you can take to make this process easier and less likely to cause conflict between the divorcing spouses. As always, the goal is to have an uncontested divorce so that you can file online and avoid taking your case to court--saving you time, money and stress.
