The new 2024 Deskbook will be delivered soon!

Kids’ Voice of Indiana authors and publishes a comprehensive reference guide called the Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook. The Deskbook is a legal textbook designed for attorneys, judges and social service professionals. This publication is a highly valuable resource that provides statutes and case law in the areas of CHINS, Termination of the Parent-Child Relationship, Guardianship/Third Party Custody, Adoption, Paternity, and CASA/GAL.

The Deskbook compiles statutes and case law, separates them out by topic, and organizes them in a natural progression through that topic. The Deskbook synthesizes, harmonizes, and condenses all the information down in a way that makes it much more accessible for people newer to this area of law, and provides experienced professionals quick access to information on a niche topic.

The Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook was published in December 2017, with a supplement published in 2021. The next full Deskbook is anticipated in summer 2024.
