Child Custody & Parenting Plans
At DeVries + Kelly, we strive to provide a safe haven for couples to work together to create parenting plans that are in the best interests of their children.
We find that optimal results are possible when parents collaborate with one another, most particularly when it comes to safeguarding the well-being of their children.
Our child custody attorney, Robin Kelly, has over 15 years of experience helping families develop solid custody agreements and parenting time plans. As a trained parenting coordinator, she uses her mediation skills to help parents negotiate the process effectively and efficiently. To learn more, reach out to our firm. With offices in Hamilton County and Indianapolis, we’re always ready to help.
Fresh Energy For Your New Family Dynamic
Families undergoing divorce or separation are often weighed down by the fear of an uncertain future. Robin’s approach brings fresh energy and compassion to help families build confidence that their new chapter will get off to the best possible start.
Robin is compassionate in her practice, but can be aggressive when necessary. Since honorably separating from the U.S. Air Force, where she served as an Air Force attorney from 1995 to 2001, she has committed her entire legal practice to family law matters. Robin represents clients in contested and uncontested divorce, custody, parenting time and child support cases, as well as in matters involving guardianships, stepparent adoptions, relocations, modifications and other post-decree cases.
Robin works with all levels of professionals — from custody evaluators to other parenting coordinators, guardians ad litem and mental health workers — when a well-rounded network is required to produce a parenting plan.
In Cases Where Court Involvement Is Necessary
When parents cannot come to a working agreement, Indiana’s family court gets involved and considers the following factors when generating a custody agreement:
- The child’s relationship with parents and other siblings
- Need for consistency in school and social settings
- Which parent is more likely to provide a loving, stable home environment
- Whether a parent has a history of drug or alcohol abuse
- A parent’s criminal background
If the court is involved in your child custody agreement, Robin has the experience to protect your rights and interests in trial.
