The Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook

Kids’ Voice of Indiana authors and publishes a comprehensive reference guide called the Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook. The Deskbook is 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 Indiana CHINS and Family Law Deskbook was published in December 2017, and is currently only available in hard copy.

The prior versions include the 2001 CHINS Deskbook and the 2014 Cumulative Supplement. The 2001 CHINS Deskbook is the original text, while the 2014 Supplement contains only information that has been updated or changed. The 2014 Cumulative Supplement should be read in conjunction with the 2001 CHINS Deskbook, in order to gain a complete overview of a topic. Online copies of prior publications can be viewed below.
