Against Public Policy

A decision last week from the Indiana Supreme Court:

The concept of parents negotiating away parenting time as a means to elimate the obligation to pay child support is repugnant and contrary to public policy. Attorneys should refuse to be a part of such discussion and should advise their clients that any such discussion is unacceptable. Here, an agreement to forego parenting time in exchange for relief from child support is declared void against public policy.

The court decried the use of a child as a "bargaining chip." (Mike Frisch)
