Can I get a divorce being pregnant?

I am almost 19 weeks pregnant and I
need to get a divorce from my husband.
He was mentally and physically abusive.
I left about a month ago because of
this. I am just trying to figure out
how I can get a divorce from him. We
have only been married since December
17, 2016. That’s when things started to
really change. Please help me figure
this out.

Under IN law, you can file for divorce with a baby on the way. Just make sure in the divorce petition to disclose that you are pregnant and whether or not your husband is the father. However, your pregnancy and having other children will comicate tings a bit. You really should consult directly with a divorce attorney in your area as they can best advise you as to the divorce preocess and custody issues.
