The New Year is upon us, and with it comes an updated version of the Indiana Child Support Guidelines. The modified Support Guidelines, like the last iteration of the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines does not automatically go into effect for all cases. In fact for them to apply to prior cases, there needs to be a Court Order.
It is important that you are aware of which version of the guidelines, whether support or parenting time, apply to your Order and situation.
Each year you should consider whether or not your Order reflects what is best for your children, and whether a modification may be in Order. Turn to someone you can trust to educate you about your Order, and which guidelines, if any, apply. Talk to someone about making sure your Order is appropriate moving forward.
At Deenik Law, LLC we are ready and willing to help you make 2016 the best it can be. Don't hesitate to reach out if you want to review your Order and discuss potential solutions.
Deenik Law wishes you a most prosperous 2016!
Holiday parenting time is important, and not just for parents, but for children. With most schools starting their Winter Breaks in a little over a week, its important that you are prepared for what is ahead. The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines have changed regarding the split of Winter Break and so it is important you know which version, if any, you should be following. I say if any, because at times, your Order may specify what Holiday Parenting Time may be despite what the IPTG say. Ultimately though, children are best served when their parents can agree to a schedule that works best for the family.
If you're unsure, get in touch with someone who can help. Look forward to next year- if you're unhappy with your schedule, begin the modification process well before the holidays.
