Parenting Time

Absent abuse, neglect or abandonment of a child, a parent should be entitled to parenting time.

The Courts have moved away from the word “visitation” because it does not accurately depict what should take place during time shared between a minor child and a non-custodial parent (the parent the child does not live with).

If in instances where the Court may have concerns about the safety of a minor child during parenting time, the Court will consider supervised parenting time as opposed to totally denying parenting.

I will discuss supervised parenting time as well as parenting time according to the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines.  Call Tara Melton at 317-925-2122 or email me at
