A decreed of dissolution terminates the marriage relationship. Indiana is “no fault” state. For a dissolution of marriage to be granted, the parties may simply allege that an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage has occurred.
In order to get divorced in Indiana, Indiana law requires at lest one of the parties to have been a resident of Indiana or stationed at a military installation within Indiana for six months and a resident of the county where the petition is filed for three months.
When considering Division of Marital Property, the property is to be divided in a “just and Reasonable” manner. There is a presumption that an equal (50-50) division of property is just and reasonable. Examples of factors the court may consider as to whether a division is just and reasonable include:
There is no alimony in Indiana. However, the court has broad discretion and may order “spousal maintenance” under certain circumstances.
The general rule is that both parties equally share a duty to support their children. The award of support to one party for the benefit of the children is generally based on monetary need and ability to pay. The amount for child support is calculated by completing a“Child Support Worksheet”, in which each parents income and expenses are calculated and applied to a guideline table to come up with a basic child support obligation.
Modification of Maintenance and Child Support Awards
Except in the case of an emergency, an order for spousal maintenance or child support must be in place for at least 12 months before it can be modified. Unless the parties agrees otherwise, the grounds for modifying a maintenance award are a substantial and continuing change in circumstances affecting the needs of the recipient spouse or the ability to pay of the obligor spouse. Generally, an obligor’s self-induced reduction in income will not be sufficient to reduce maintenance. For example, if an ex-husband quits his job and refuses to look for a new job, his claims that maintenance should be reduced will be rejected. Child support is modifiable based upon a substantial and continuing change in circumstances affecting the needs of the children or the ability of the parents to pay, or upon a showing that the payor has been ordered to pay an amount in child support differs by more than 20% from the amount that he currently would be ordered to pay applying the guideline.
Having custody of a minor child can mean legal custody, which is the right to make major decisions affecting the child’s life, or Physician custody, which is the actual possession and control of the child, or both. Joint custody can mean either joint legal custody (Parents share the decision making, but the child remains with one parent), or joint physical custody (child divides time between each parent’s home) or both.
When an award of sole custody is made to one parent, the other parent is given reasonable visitation rights, unless visitation might endanger the child’s physical health or significantly impair the child’s emotional development.
Modification of Child Custody and Decrees
Modification may be made upon motion of one of the parties, or in some cases, the court’s own motion. Actions for modification are usually begun by filing a petition in the original action. The basis for modification of custody orders is usually phrased as changed circumstances or a substantial or material change in circumstances. This implies that only facts occurring after the original decree may be considered.
