If the parents of a child do not live together, Indiana Courts look to the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines. We encourage current and potential clients to read through the guidelines and to be familiar with the general provisions. Section I discusses how separated parents can best work together to make the situation as comfortable as is possible for the child(ren). Section II gives specific parenting times for a typical situation where the parents are within easy distance of each other. Section III discuss the difficulties that arise when the parents are a significant distance apart. Parents can seek to adjust the guidelines if appropriate for their child(ren), but should be aware that most judges begin with the guidelines as a strong presumption.
