Frequently Asked Indianapolis, IN Questions

How long do I have to live in Indianapolis before I can file for divorce?

You must live in the state of Indiana for six months to file for divorce and in the particular county for three months to file for divorce in that county.

Is there a mandatory waiting period in Indianapolis before a divorce can be granted?

In Indiana, there is a 60-day waiting period, which starts on the date of filing the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.

A divorce in Indiana can take, at a minimum, 60 days, but the vast majority of dissolution cases take several months depending on the issues and how agreeable the parties are.

How can I serve my spouse in Marion County? If attempts to serve do not work, can I serve by publication?

You can serve your spouse via certified mail, by sheriff, or by private process server. On the Summons you file with your Petition for Dissolution, you will indicate how you wish your spouse to be served.

If your spouse’s whereabouts are unknown and you have made diligent efforts to locate her, you can serve your spouse via publication. Contact the local publication of the county in which the proceeding is taking place to set up service.

What are the specific forms I will need to file for a divorce in Marion County?

To file for dissolution, you need to file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and a Summons for the court to submit to the opposing party. Make sure you include multiple copies of the Petition and Summons, so that the court may keep a copy, and so that your spouse will receive a copy by whatever method of service you choose.

If you would like to ask the court to issue temporary orders regarding custody, child support, or payment of monthly marital debts, you can also file a Praecipe for Provisional Hearing.

If you are requesting a provisional hearing, you should include a proposed order setting the hearing for the court to fill out when it grants your request. Also, make sure you request a specific amount of time for your hearing if you will need more than 15 minutes.

Where do I file for divorce in Indianapolis?

In Marion County, you will file the Petition with the clerk’s office in the city-county building, who will then assign the case to a Marion County Superior Court in the Civil Division.
