Child Custody in Indiana

In Indiana, it has become common for parents to have joint legal custody of children. With joint legal custody, both parents have equal opportunity to weigh in on important decisions in their children's lives, such as:

  • Medical decisions
  • Religious upbringing
  • School choice

Parents who have children under the age of 18 are required to attend TransParenting, a program that helps parents understand the problems children face when their parents divorce. Mr. Gabhart is a certified facilitator for this program which provides him with a unique insight into handling child custody matters with compassion and understanding. He is entirely committed to helping your children get through divorce with as little disruption as possible.

Child Support

The purpose of child support is to fairly divide the day-to-day expenses of raising children between the parents.  Also included in the child support calculation are day care costs and the costs of health insurance for the children. The process of accurately and fairly calculating child support requires the skill of a knowledgeable attorney. Indiana law permits fine-tuning of the child support obligation between the parents based on factors such as the number of overnights each parent has with the children each year. We will insure that the support calculation is accurate, and we will look out for your children's best interests at all times.
