Property Distribution, The Rights Of Children And Orders Of Protection

Sometimes turmoil near the end of a relationship can become so heated that one spouse may feel that an order of protection from the court is necessary to prevent the other spouse from committing harassment or abuse. It is important to retain an experienced divorce attorney in these situations, whether you are the party seeking a restraining order or the party seeking to avoid the consequences of having such a charge on your record.

Dividing Marital Property

For many reasons, it is desirable to retain an experienced attorney if you are undergoing a divorce, especially if a lot of property is involved. Some spouses are able to split marital property themselves, without outside assistance from lawyers and the judicial system. But more often, tension between spouses makes it difficult to communicate openly about who should keep certain property such as the marital home, pets, vehicles and various gifts that were given to the couple. It is important that you retain an experienced divorce lawyer if your spouse is aggressive in making demands for marital property and alimony.

When Minor Children Are Involved, We Can Help

When deciding custody of children, Kentucky courts consider several factors, including the wishes of the children, their involvement in school and community, and reports of abuse, if any. The court's inquiry is very thorough and specific.

One option for the court is to award sole custody to one parent. A parent who is awarded sole custody receives the exclusive authority to make decisions for the health and well-being of the child. Another option for the court is to vest both parents with joint custody of the child. Under a joint custody arrangement, the parents share decision-making authority regarding the child's health and well-being. The court also generally expects parents to establish and adhere to regular parenting time schedules.
