Proudly Serving South Bend Families From All Walks Of Life

Meeting The Challenges Of Divorce

At a difficult time in life, get the compassionate legal help that you can trust. At Longstreet Law LLC in South Bend, we will listen to your concerns and work with you to pursue a resolution for your divorce. In addition to finalizing your dissolution, you may need spousal support to transition to your new life. Our firm will listen, inform and strategize with you to further your interests.

Cooling Off Period For Indiana Divorces

After you have filed for the dissolution of your marriage and your ex has been served with the paperwork, Indiana requires a 60-day waiting period before any other part of the divorce can proceed. This is designed to discourage divorces filed in the heat of anger and make sure all parties are sure that divorce is the right answer for their family law conflicts.

Family Concerns

Are there children in the family? We know that their needs are of utmost importance in divorce agreement negotiations. Caring for children and their futures is a responsibility that requires:

Further Support

Post-secondary educational support arrangements are another way to provide for children into the future. Whether finalized during the divorce or negotiated later as part of a support modification, this type of educational allowance can be a useful subsidy to further your children’s upcoming opportunities.

Property Division

Determining an equitable division of the property that you acquired with your spouse during the marriage is the other major goal of divorce. Our attorneys can help you protect your most precious assets and ensure the distribution of property is fair.


Post-decree changes of circumstances often necessitate legal modifications to accommodate changes such as relocation of a parent and shifting needs of the children as they grow older. We can craft your modification to reflect your changing needs.

High-Value Service

Attorney Laura Longstreet, a Hoosier native, takes pride in providing high-quality legal representation at a reasonable price. She can give straightforward guidance, mediate negotiations and fight for your rights in court.
