Family law in Indiana: how can enhanced legislation better protect children from abuse and neglect?
The study and practice of family law in the United States is an ever-evolving realm of legal and social issues that cannot fundamentally be addressed without many factors taken into consideration. Though many family law issues are unique to certain geographical locations in the United States, the vast majority of these matters share underlying factors. Through an analysis of underlying factors that lead to child abuse and neglect, this research paper seeks to explore current governing laws and legislation in Indiana and discover the current gaps in family law legislation. The legitimate intention of this project is the dissemination of proposed solutions that can better the practice of family law in Muncie, Indiana.
