Addressing Every Aspect of Your Divorce

When it comes to coping with the divorce process, one of the first steps is to understand your options. Not all divorces – in fact, not many divorces – end up in court. By the same token, however, it is rare that divorcing spouses are truly on the same page about all the various issues they face. Most fall somewhere in the middle.

In Indiana, spouses can file for either contested or uncontested divorce. In a contested divorce, the spouses face at least one issue that they cannot agree on.

At Hains Law, LLC, we can help you resolve any of the matters you encounter during divorce, including:
