Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage

It is widely known that marriages often end with a divorce, long before the parting at death sworn to in most wedding vows.  While the issues associated with divorce were probably the last thing on your mind when you got married, facing a divorce now deserves your full attention.  The consequences of a divorce may have an impact on your life and the lives of your children for years to come. 


Indiana recognizes a no fault standard for divorce.  This means that a court will dissolve the marriage if at least one party claims that the marriage is irretrievably broken.  Because the court dissolves the marriage, a divorce is referred to as a dissolution of marriage.  It is not uncommon for a husband or wife to be served with a document entitled Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and not understand that they were just served with divorce papers.  The divorce proceedings typically begin with the filing of a Verified Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.


Once your divorce case is filed, the court with encourage you and your spouse to address the issues of child custody, parenting time, child support, and property division.  The court also has the authority to enter provisional orders addressing these issues while your case is pending.


Attorney Joseph M. Roberts represents both husbands and wives in dissolution of marriage actions.  Each situation varies greatly under differing circumstances.  Therefore, Attorney Roberts strives to achieve the results which best achieve your objectives.  Attorney Roberts values open communications throughout this process, as the issues addressed are typically emotionally charged.  By taking a practical approach to such an emotional process, Attorney Roberts seeks to first find common ground between you and your spouse.  This method often saves time, money, and heartache for all involved.
