There is a short waiting period for divorces in Indiana. The final hearing just has to be at least 60 days after the divorce papers are filed. If in that time the judge believes there is a possibility that you and your spouse will reconcile, the matter may be pushed out another 45 days.

Of course, there are other factors to consider and negotiations that will need to happen before your divorce will be finalized, especially if your divorce involves high-value assets. Consult with an attorney to learn how long the process will likely take for your situation.

Not necessarily. Indiana recognizes “no-fault” divorce, meaning all a couple has to do is state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” If you can show the judge that you and your partner cannot fix your relationship, nothing else is required.
Indiana is an “equitable division” state. However, this does not necessarily mean property is split equally, 50-50. Instead, the court considers a variety of factors to determine what division would be fair, such as:
  • Financial contributions of each spouse
  • Earning potentials
  • Value of significant assets, such as the home

These factors are valued differently in every case. This is why it is crucial that you have a skilled attorney who understands what the court will consider when handing down a decree. Property division may be especially complicated for same-sex couples.
