Divorce Representation Tailored to Your Needs

Our divorce lawyer, Jay Lauer, was formerly employed by Legal Services of Indiana. During his tenure, he worked with diverse families to resolve their legal concerns regarding divorce and child custody. Due to this experience, he understands that every family and every situation is unique. By getting to know you and your particular needs, he customizes his representation to your individual goals.

Distinguishing Between Fact and Fiction

It is a common misconception that you have to prove someone is at fault in order to obtain divorce papers. In Indiana, this is not the case. You or your spouse must show that damage to your marriage is irreparable. Blame is not officially placed on either party. At our firm, Attorney Lauer carefully explains the divorce process, separating the fact from fiction. He works with you to set appropriate goals and discusses options for achieving them.

Support Throughout the Process

Divorce can contain many different facets. We are prepared to assist you with all aspects during and following the dissolution of your marriage, including:

  • Child support

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Division of debt

  • Marital property division

  • Spousal support/spousal maintenance/alimony

  • Modification of orders

In all matters, we work with you to achieve an acceptable settlement, either through negotiation or mediation whenever possible. When an amicable agreement cannot be reached, Mr. Lauer draws upon his more than 25 years of experience as a trial lawyer to represent your interests in the courtroom.
