1 p.m. 42A01-1308-DR-381. This appeal involves the review of an Order modifying a child custody order in favor of Mother, the Appellee, following her relocation from Vincennes, Indiana to Carterville, Illinois.  Father, the Appellant, presents this court with issues concerning the obligations of a non-relocating parent to timely object to a relocation where the relocating parent has failed to provide notice pursuant to Indiana Code section 31-17-2.2-1(a) and Indiana Code section 31-17-2.2-3, as well as issues regarding the factors a trial court must consider in determining whether to modify a custody order.  Specifically, Father asserts that the trial court erred by:

•considering only the best interests of the child rather than the factors specifically enumerated for relocation cases under Indiana Code section 31-17-2.2-1(b);
•failing to find there had been a substantial change to at least one of the factors used in ascertaining the child’s best interests during the initial custody determination pursuant to Indiana Code section 31-17-2-21; and
•concluding that it was in the child’s best interests to award physical custody to Mother.

  1. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
