Custodial Parental Rights
As the custodial parent in the state of Indiana, you have the right to determine your child’s upbringing. This includes things like:
Religion and Religious Training
Extra curricular activities
Note that this assumes that custody is not shared jointly with the other parent, but rather that you have been named the custodial parent in your child custody agreement. Your authority as the custodial parent can be limited should a court order find that such action is necessary in order to avoid physical or emotional injury to the child.
Noncustodial Parental Rights
Even if you are not awarded custodial rights and are not living with your child the majority of the time, you still have rights that must be upheld. This includes the right to see your child and spend time with them - the court system is required to award you parenting time as dictated in the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines. These guidelines do not apply in situations where substance abuse, family violence, or other circumstances that could endanger the child in question are present. In addition, you might not have the right to see your child should you pose any threats to their safety.
