    Flat Fee! My motto is "Avoid Court - Divorce With Dignity". As your family law mediator, I can help you reach agreements, draft most of your documents, and keep you out of court. HIRE ONE MEDIATOR INSTEAD OF TWO ATTORNEYS.

    26 years

I can vouch from personal experience that 1) divorce does not have to be awful, and 2) the degree of "awfulness" will most likely be determined, not by your soon-to-be-ex-spouse, but by the kind of lawyer you hire.  Your friends and relatives may advise you to hire a real "shark" in order to protect yourself.  Unfortunately that may be the worst advice you could receive.  A "shark" is defined as a predatory fish that eats smaller fish and is sometimes dangerous to human beings.  An attorney who is known as a "shark" will definitely be dangerous to human beings and most especially dangerouse to their pocketbooks, spouses, and children.  While you may, indeed, need an attorney with litigation experience, your pending divorce will be the worst kind fo "awfulness" if you hire a shark. 

 

I have devoted my 18 years of family law practice to keeping my clients out of court through collaboration, negotiation, and pro-se mediation.  It is my goal to help clients worry less about pursing their "rights" and more about pursuing the right outcome for themselves and for the future relationship of their families.  Children will experience one and only one childhood.  It is my goal to help clients preserve that childhood by helping them to divorce with dignity.

Settlement of Family Law case
Ongoing issues with my kids father. He never seems to want to follow the law. On more than one occasion, Carol Romine, has been miraculously able to settle these issues for me without having to go to court.

Excellent Services!
I had the privilege of hiring Carol Romine to handle my case of child support. After our initial consultation I knew she would be the best fit for my family and work to resolve my legal issues with empathy and professionalism. Carol was always prompt to respond to any questions or concerns regarding my case and took the time to explain every detail. It was reassuring to know Carol had my family's best interest at heart and worked diligently to resolve my case quickly and fairly. I would surely hire Carol again!

Quality mediation.
We came into her office to discuss a divorce and do so with the mediation process. Carol listen incredibly well and provided quality key information to the process. We knew exactly where we stood and how things were going to play out. I would highly recommend anyone to have a consultation with Carol and see if this mediation process is right for your situation.

Emotions kept in check!
Carol Romine handled our Modification. My Ex-and I, not knowing what to expect, were prepared to bicker. Ms. Romine made sure we both knew our emotions wouldn't change the law and she processed our case swiftly and economically.

Carol was very supportive. She has a very calm manner which is wonderful when you are dealing with such a stressful event. Her calm manner and insights allowed me to be more objective versus reactive. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Excelllent attorney
Carol is an excellent. She is practical in her approach of handling the objective of going through the process of divorce without losing sight of what her clients objectives are. She is very practical and has helped me personally on occasions where her services were needed during a weekend or after normal business hours. Carol is very knowledgeable and takes a personal interest in clients.

Highly recommend mediation with Carol Romine!
We had a wonderful experience using Carol Romine for our divorce. From the first phone consult I had with her, I knew that we'd be in good hands. Keeping our divorce from getting contentious and making sure that our children were the first priority was very important to us, and those things were important to her as well. I never imagined I would laugh while going through a divorce, but she allowed us to keep things light and simple. She was always very quick to return emails, and it was very easy to schedule meetings for her. And best of all, we saved money using the mediation process rather than two attorneys. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!

Another pair of shoes
The first time I met Carol I knew she was the attorney for me. She had my best interest in mind even when I didn't know exactly what that was. There were time we didn't see eye to eye but looking back now I thank her every day for the fantastic job she did for me. She's a real champion to have on your side. Thanks Carol!!!!!!

Knowledgeable and fair
Attorney Romine is very knowledgeable in family law. She handled every aspect of my case. My daughter went to see her mother in another state and did not return from her vacation. Attorney Romine quickly proceeded with current actions within Indiana, Hamilton County court and worked well with the Attorney in Colorado. The joint venture was handled quickly and ended with more defined rulings to support my custody. The receipts were easy to read and accurate and she charges a fair price. I would definitely recommend Attorney Romine for family law.

Another child adopted into the family!
Ms. Romine represented my daughter in a step-parent adoption. My grandchild's biological father gave her up for adoption when my daughter married. Her new husband had been there helping to raise my grandchild since she was a year old. He was already her "daddy". Mrs. Romine helped him to become her legal father also. Ms. Romine has represented our family in several types of cases over the years. We have had nothing but great success with every case. We have used Ms. Romine for uncontested adoptions, custody battles, child support issues, and general legal advice. We didn't always like what she had to tell us, but we always trusted her to do what was in our best interest. In the end, we are so glad that we listened to her advice.

My 4th child came to me in the courtroom
I had three adult children and didn't know if I was ready to start with number four at only 5 years old. But this child won my heart and I knew he was to be a part of my spirit. Carol helped us understand what was necessary to go though with the adoption of my step-son. My son's biological mother was killed when he was only four years old. His father and I were married when he was five. Last year we were able to complete the adoption process and he adopted me! There weren't many dry eyes in the courtroom; it was as if I had given birth to my fourth child. Carol kept us informed every step of the way letting us know about deadlines well in advance. She made this day one we will never forget. She even took time out of her day to go to breakfast with our new family after the hearing. I can't say enough good things about Carol.

Single dad gets custody of special needs premie!
Carol helped me get custody of my newborn the week she left the hospital. My child was born 10 weeks early and I spent every day at the hospital looking at her through glass (because her mother wanted her new boyfriend to be the father). The mother even lied on an affidavit in an attempt to keep me from being with my daughter. But I didn't give up, and neither did Carol. Eventually I was able to be in the intensive care unit to hold and feed my 2lb 6oz baby girl. And finally, the day after she was released from the hospital, we went to court. My baby girl went home with me that day because Carol was willing to do the research that another attorney wasn't willing to do. Another attorney had told me, "just wait until the baby was released and then we would fight for custody". I was not willing to wait until the baby was released from the hospital to fight for her right to bond with her father. And I didn't want to lose those precious moments of bonding with my newborn. Because of Carol's dedication and research, I was given that opportunity; one that could never be gotten back once lost. In the court room, Carol was fair. I had a great deal of compassion for my ex and didn't want her to be "destroyed" in court. Carol understood my desire to be fair and she respected my wishes. She stated the facts and presented the evidence while showing respect for my ex. Would I recommend Carol for your custody case? Absolutely!
