Commonly Asked Questions
How is custody determined during a divorce?
If the parents cannot come to a custody agreement, custody will be determined in a hearing. The decision in the hearing is based on what the court determines to be in the best interest of the child.
What is the difference between legal and physical custody?
The parent awarded physical custody is the person the child will live with. Legal custody is the right to have input in the child’s upbringing, such as schooling, religion, and medical care. Both physical and legal custody can be joint, meaning the parents share responsibilities and parenting time.
How much do I owe for child support?
If the case is an IV‑D case (if filed through the Prosecutor’s Office), you can find out how much child support you owe by calling the Kidsline at (800) 840‑8757 or (317) 233‑5437.
