Do Indiana Courts Favor Mothers in Child Custody Cases? And How Do Courts Decide Custody Disputes?

Long ago, Courts often followed the practice of awarding custody of children of tender years to the mother and teenage children to the parent of the same sex. Today, and for many years now, Indiana Courts determine custody based upon the best interest of the child. There is no presumption in favor of either parent.

The Changing Role of Family Law Practice

For many years, family law was a part of the general practice of small firms and sole-practitioners, and general rules and procedures governed the disposition of these matters. Modern laws have greatly increased the complexity of this area of the law. No longer can an attorney dabble in simple divorce, because simple divorces no longer exist. If you are going through a divorce or need help with a family law matter such as child custody or support, read why it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced family law attorney.
