Divorce is often an emotionally traumatic experience, fraught with recriminations and bitterness. Each and every case is unique and requires a different level of resources. To protect what is in the best interests of clients, our attorneys will focus on the “big picture” of your case and works closely with families to identify solutions that are acceptable to both spouses, saving time and money for everyone involved.
Understanding Divorce in Kentucky
Most divorces involve a complex tangle of issues that must be resolved through negotiations, mediation, or litigation. Our attorneys carefully consider all factors in your case, strategizing options for meeting your goals. For example, when assessing your child support options, we will thoroughly examine the financial contributions of both spouses, as well as the involvement and care provided by each to their children.
Our attorneys are prepared to advise, counsel, and represent you in the following divorce-related manners:
- Prenuptial Agreements
- Alimony / Spousal Support / Maintenance
- Division of Property
- Business Valuation
- Child Custody and Visitation
- Child Support
In Kentucky, the spouse with the majority of resources or assets can be forced to pay all or part of the other side’s attorney fees. Kentucky law allows this so that one spouse cannot take advantage of the fact that they have the resources to hire an attorney.
About Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative law is a relatively new way to resolve family law concerns. It allows couples to determine the terms of their divorce settlement through constructive negotiation, rather than leaving these important decisions to a judge who has no personal stake in the matter. Our attorneys are highly skilled in guiding clients through the collaborative process, which often preserves not only time and money but relationships and communication.
