Volunteer Training for Juvenile Court

The Marion County Juvenile Court is in need of guardian ad litem volunteers for delinquency case referrals. Training will be offered to volunteers on Thursday, January 27, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Juvenile Court, 2451 N. Keystone Ave. To register or if you have questions, contact Ryan Hakes at rhakes@indy.gov. There is no cost for those who take one case; 3 hours general credit available.

Volunteers Needed for Naturalization Ceremonies

Twice a month, a ceremony at the U.S. Courthouse welcomes newly naturalized American citizens. It’s an awe-inspiring ceremony, and you can be a part of it during 2011. We are looking for IndyBar attorney members to volunteer to participate in the naturalization ceremonies by handing out a booklet containing the U.S. and Indiana constitutions and presenting brief remarks. The ceremonies are typically held on Thursdays twice a month at 10 a.m. in a courtroom of the U.S. District Court downtown. To volunteer, please e-mail cchopp@indybar.org.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
