A discussion on the high a low conflict approaches to settling a divorce. Mediation is the alternative approach to traditional litigation.
Courts in Indiana make custody determinations in the best interests of the child. While the court makes no presumption that one parent is better than the other based on gender, it is required to consider certain relevant factors before awarding custody, including the age and gender of the child and the child's and parents' wishes (special consideration is given to the wishes of a child who is 14 years of age or older), parental and family interaction, and the child's home, school and community adjustment. The mental and physical health of both child and parents will be taken into consideration, as well as any evidence that domestic violence occurred in the marriage.
