Protecting What Matters Most
When parents divorce or unmarried parents split up, the most important issues they face involve the care and well-being of their children.
At Adolf Law Office, we understand how emotional child custody and support issues can be. Attorney Anthony T. Adolf will do everything in his power to protect your parental rights and the best interests of your children.
Resolving Child Custody Issues
Under Indiana child custody laws, child custody is broken down into two main categories:
- Physical custody: Where the child lives
- Legal custody: Who makes decisions about important aspects of the child’s life, including education, health care and religion
We work with our clients closely to help them develop custody orders and parenting time schedules that maximize their role in the child’s life while protecting the child’s interests. When disputes arise, we handle them with great care. We know how to negotiate in an amicable manner that encourages cooperation between parents. When strong litigation is necessary to protect our clients’ rights, however, we are always prepared.
Navigating Child Support Issues
While there is room to negotiate for child custody matters, child support comes down to a set of guidelines set forth by Indiana law. Factors that influence the amount of child support to be paid include:
- The number of children
- The income of each parent
- The standard of living the child enjoyed prior to the divorce or separation
- The child’s needs
We can guide you through all aspects of establishing initial child support orders as well as represent you in modification or enforcement issues that arise once a decree has been issued.
