Angola Family Lawyers

When you consider the concept of family, you think about the individuals you are related to by blood, marriage, or similar bonds. You might not realize how legal issues impact these close, personal relationships, but the body of Indiana family law is both broad and complex. Plus, there is some overlap in other legal areas, with many cases touching on criminal and international law topics. Together, the statutes, case law, and procedural rules establish numerous rights and obligations.

Your interests could be at risk without skilled legal representation, so it is wise to consult with a knowledgeable family law attorney right away. At the Bellinger Law Office, our team is well-versed in the complicated subject matter and experienced in pursuing all options for resolving disputes. Please contact us today to set up a case evaluation with one of our Angola family lawyers. Some information on our legal services is also helpful.


Common Family Law Cases in Indiana

Our firm is prepared to support you with all types of cases, and we represent parties playing many different roles in family law matters. You can rely on us for help with:

  • Divorce: A key issue with Indiana divorce is property division, and the state applies the equitable distribution rule. Marital assets acquired after the wedding are subject to division in the interests of fairness, and separate property belongs to the individual spouse.
  • Alimony may be ordered to balance the financial gaps between the parties. If the court awards spousal support, the judge will set the type, amount, and duration.
  • Issues Related to Minor Children: Parents have rights and duties with respect to their children, whether they are married, separated, or never married. Child custody, visitation, and support will come up in divorce and paternity cases.
  • Modifications and Enforcement: When circumstances change, or you need to enforce an order issued by a family law court, there are certain requirements to meet.
  • Domestic Violence: Individuals can petition the court for a restraining order against domestic violence on an emergency basis in appropriate situations. Both petitioner and respondent have important interests to protect.
