While property division might not be as important as other issues in a divorce such as child custody and support, it is still a major part of the case and should be given significant attention. People who have decided that their marriage is no longer viable and cannot be saved will inevitably move forward with a divorce. As they prepare for the future, they will want to be on solid ground with the items from the marriage and prior to the marriage they are entitled to.
Although each divorce proceeding is as unique as the people involved, the divorce process in Indiana follows a common timeline.
When there is an order of child support in Indiana, it is made with the best interests of the child in mind. With spousal support, it is for the spouse who was not the breadwinner in the relationship or who earned less than the other spouse to be able to survive based on the married lifestyle. The financial order is not a method to punish the supporting parent. The main goal is to provide for the child and the former spouse. For some, the situation has changed and there is the need to change the order.
