How Property Is Divided In An Indiana Divorce

Indiana is one of the states that follows an equitable distribution method for divorce. Equitable distribution means that the division of the marital estate is not even, but divides – as the law states – “in a just and reasonable matter.”

Typically, the courts will look to many factors within the marriage and the divorce before making any final determinations on what should be awarded where. They may review:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The relative assets of both spouses
  • The income of both spouses
  • The contributions of both to the marital estate
  • Circumstances in the divorce

Typically, longer marriages and where there is significant financial dependence, the division may be closer to even, but that’s not always the case. Every aspect of the property division process can be up for discussion.

Grounds For Divorce In Indiana

It is important to note that among the grounds for divorce, “marital misconduct” such as infidelity, is not a factor. The legal grounds for divorce in Indiana include the following:

  • A felony conviction
  • Impotency
  • Incurable insanity
  • Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage

It is the last, irretrievable breakdown, that deserves attention, as it is the term for no-fault divorce in the state. Anyone who meets residency requirements may file for an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage divorce.
