Three Things To Know About Parenting Plans
At Carrie K. Stiller, Attorney at Law, in New Albany, we help divorcing couples develop parenting time schedules and have done so for 20 years. Our experience with Indiana law helps us skillfully guide our clients through all aspects of the divorce process, including parenting time. Here are three things to know about parenting plans in Indiana.
The State Has A Plan
Our state already has a parenting plan, called The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines. Included in the guidelines are eight points regarding a child’s basic needs. Even if you and the child’s other parent developed your parenting time arrangements, they must fulfill the requirements of this state statute. Our state takes parenting orders seriously. If one of the parents does not follow an order’s mandate, they can be held in contempt.
Modification Of Parenting Time Allowed
It is common to need a change in parenting time schedules as children get older, and parents’ work schedules change. Requests to modify parenting agreements are decided on in court and must have reasons that support the well-being of the children. Having a child custody attorney guide you through the modification request makes the process more efficient and straightforward.
There Is An Arrangement For High-Conflict Divorces
In the case of dispute-filled divorces so contentious that they begin to affect the child, there are options. Our child custody attorney can help you navigate to find what is best for your family.
