Parimala Kumaresan v. Arul Anthony George (mem. dec.)
Domestic relations with children. Affirms the Bartholomew Superior Court’s dissolution order awarding Parimala Kumaresan and Arul Anthony George joint legal custody of their two children and an equal division of the marital estate. Finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding joint legal custody of the children to the parents. Also finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion in finding the SBI bank account to be a vested interest or in valuing Kumaresan’s interest in the account as the full value of the account. Finally, finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion when it determined that an equal division was just and reasonable.
