Practice Areas

Divorce and Custody

We know that not everyone has the same needs, and let’s face it, the process of divorce can be an intensely emotional and stressful process. But we can help and better days can be ahead for all involved with proper legal guidance. We encourage you to let us help you find the best path forward. We are equipped to help you in the way that is best suited for you and your family’s individual situation.

Indiana is a no-fault state. This means that the reasons why one spouse chooses to end the marriage are irrelevant to the court. The most common reason is that there has been an “irretrievable breakdown” in the marriage, and that the marriage should be dissolved. Let us, the attorneys at Mercho Caughey, guide you through these and all the other issues that arise, including the division of property, spousal maintenance, and child support.

Every family is different. We strive to provide our clients with superior customer service by tailoring the management of each client’s case to address his or her specific needs. So no matter what your family situation, we can help.

Premarital Agreements

These agreements, also referred to as prenuptial agreements, are contracts between parties executed in contemplation of marriage. Despite their intent, they are not so simple and their enforceability is dependent upon numerous factors. They must, among other things, be in writing and signed, and require full disclosure of all assets.

At Mercho Caughey, we have experience preparing, and litigating, premarital agreements. You can trust our attorneys to assist you in securing an unknown future.

Paternity

By law, if parties are married at the time a child is born, the husband is deemed to be the father of the child. If the parties are unmarried, there is sometimes doubt regarding the biological father, and therefore paternity will need to be established.

The attorneys at Mercho Caughey will guide you through the legal paternity process, so that the parties can focus on the emotional aspects of the relationships involved.
