Indiana Based Divorce Lawyers & Family Law Team

Hollingsworth & Zivitz: A Full-Service Family Law Team Headquartered in Hamilton County

Dealing with any type of legal issue involving your family can be a stressful and all-consuming, to say the least. For most people, the prospect of change is not easy to welcome, and it can lead to anxiety and fear. Fortunately, you do not have to face this alone!

Whether your family issues involve contemplating divorce, dealing with a custody or child support modification, protecting your children within public school systems, or fighting for your special needs child to get the education they deserve, creating an effective estate plan, developing, growing and protecting a small business you created, or defending yourself or family member when some of these challenges result in compounded problems (such as minor criminal issues including OWI/DUI, etc), we understand the struggles of these challenging family dynamics --- and we are here to help!

At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, our divorce lawyers offer families in Indianapolis and throughout the state of Indiana (and beyond) reach effective resolutions. If you are at a major crossroads in life, or if your family is going through particularly challenging circumstances, our full-service family law firm can guide you towards the next (and best!) phase of your life.

Decades of Combined Experience Dedicated to Family Law & Legal Issues Involving Families

Since 2004, our award-winning law firm has been compassionately and skillfully handling a wide range of family law cases, including divorce, custody, child support, paternity, spousal support, guardianship, grandparent visitation rights, emancipation, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, contested adoptions, step-parent adoptions, and family law appeals.

We also assist clients who need help with restraining orders, relocations, post-secondary education expense orders, modifications of custody and child support, contempt and education and juvenile law matters. In addition to the legal issues that are traditionally considered “family law,” we have a passion for representing children (and their families) who experience troublesome issues at school (such as bullying, unreasonable expulsions, etc).

We are dedicated to assisting families and protecting special needs children within the public school system, which includes ensuring they have proper individualized education programs (“IEP”). Our experienced Special Education Law Team zealously fights for the rights of all children – including special needs children - and their families.

Should you choose to entrust your case to us, you may benefit from the following:

  • Results-driven strategies that are personalized to your unique situation
  • Passionate advocacy from bright, compassionate lawyers, many of whom have been repeatedly named to the list of Super Lawyers®
  • Working late nights and weekends, when necessary, in order to help you workable results for you and your family

Wish to settle your divorce in a more private and amicable manner? We also offer mediation services and a collaborative law approach to divorce and family law matters. Our law firm practices alternative dispute law, with a primary goal being to present a way that is less contentious.

Our focus is always on minimizing and diffusing conflict for our clients, so that life after the legal process, whether through co-parenting or just living an easier life, can be more peaceful. These means of alternative dispute resolution should always be examined first, to save our clients’ time, money, and emotional exhaustion. However, when these types of alternative dispute resolution methods are ineffective, we are skilled litigators, ready for litigation and passionate about fighting for our clients’ rights in the courtroom.
