Indiana Property Division

Divorce laws in Indiana follow equitable property distribution principles, meaning the divorce court will divide the marital property by what is considered fair and reasonable.

Protect your home during property division with a divorce attorney.

When making property division decisions, the Indiana divorce court will consider certain circumstances, including:

  • Each spouse's contribution to the acquisition of the property, regardless of whether the contribution was income producing
  • Property that was acquired by each spouse before the marriage or through inheritance or gift
  • Economic circumstances of each spouse at the time of property distribution, including the desire to award the family home to the custodial parent
  • Conduct of the spouse during marriage
  • Earnings or earning ability of the spouses as relating to the final property division and final determination of property rights of the spouses
