Indiana Guidelines for Parenting Time

The Indiana Supreme Court sets out clear guidelines for parenting time arrangements, based on the belief that a child benefits from having frequent, meaningful interactions with both parents. The guidelines specify visitation time according to the age of the child, acceptable communication arrangements when a child is away from one parent, and methods to resolve disputes, among other things. It is important to note that these guidelines are the starting point for creating a child custody and parenting time schedule; the final arrangement will be specific to your family’s situation and needs. To view the full parenting time guidelines, please see the Indiana judiciary rules. Although the law is in favor of having both parents in a child’s life, men are still the underdogs in custody and visitation arrangements. Mothers are often awarded primary physical custody, even if the fathers are fully capable of handling the responsibility. Family law attorney Robert H. Bellinger is an advocate of men’s rights and will work hard to level the playing field.

Parenting Time Modifications

Are you planning to move to another city or state? Does your child’s school schedule require that a visitation schedule be changed? Attorney Bellinger has significant experience in modifying arrangements to better serve the family’s needs. He also has experience disputing modification requests in appropriate circumstances. Like in all family law matters, parents must go through mediation process in an attempt to resolve the modification issue outside of trial. This is often less contentious, less expensive and more likely to result in an outcome that both sides can accept. However, attorney Bellinger is a skilled trial lawyer and will take your case to court if it is to your advantage.
