Indiana Family Laws
Welcome to FindLaw’s section on Indiana family law, with links to state resources and regularly updated information about such topics as marriage, divorce, adoption, child support, and child custody. Most family laws in Indiana are quite similar to those of other states, with a few differences. For example, the Hoosier State allows first cousins ages 65 and older to marry. As a practice area, family law also includes domestic abuse, stalking, and protective orders (all of which cross over into criminal law as well). Click on a topic below to learn more. If you need additional information, contact an Indiana family law attorney.
