Custody Disputes Involving Military Personnel

There is a specific statute in Indiana that protects individuals in the military on active duty who are involved in a custody disputes.  According to Indiana law, a court may not consider as a factor in determining custody or modifying a child custody order a parent’s absence or relocation due to active duty.  

If you are in the military and going through a custody dispute, the opposing party may try to argue that you should not have custody of your child because of your deployment.  This argument is contrary to Indiana law and you should not be punished for serving your country.
