Child-Focused Custody And Visitation Arrangements
A child is the best gift most parents will receive during their marriage. It is natural to be concerned about protecting your child’s best interests following a divorce.
At Katzman & Katzman, P.C., our attorneys are here to help you craft a parenting time arrangement that meets your goals.
Custody, Relocation And Child Custody Modifications
Child custody is often the most difficult part of divorce proceedings. Even when you and your spouse can no longer find common ground in other areas of your life, you should try to protect your children from the emotional turmoil often caused by divorce.
Indiana courts aim to provide equal parenting rights to both the mother and father unless there is a compelling reason, such as abuse or why one parent should not share custody. Typically, the child will have a home base where he or she will live most of the time, though 50-50 arrangements are possible. In Indiana, once a child turns 14 he or she may be allowed custodial preference — in cases where you are divorcing.
Whenever possible, our lawyers will help you negotiate a parenting arrangement with your spouse out of court. Our attorneys are trained in the collaborative law process, which is designed to minimize conflict in divorce. When necessary, however, we are prepared to litigate the issues in court.
