Family law cases are one of the most stressful and emotional decisions a person will ever have to make or be involved during their lifetime.  I will help you understand the law and how the law affects your rights and decisions. 

The Indiana Supreme Court has adopted Uniform Child Support Guidelines and Uniform Parenting Time Guidelines. A Trial Court’s initial analysis of child support and child parenting time/child visitation begins with the applicable Indiana Child Support Guidelines and with the applicable Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines. The presumed amount of child support and parenting time/visitation can be rebutted with appropriate evidence.
