Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer consultations?
We offer risk-free consultations, meaning that we will sit down and get to know your case at no immediate cost. If you decide not to hire us, there is no cost to you.
How can I improve my case?
There are no substitutes for preparation and knowledge. One of the most important things you can do to help yourself is to be honest with your lawyer. If you’re in the middle of a custody or property settlement proceeding and you’re afraid that something from your past could negatively impact the case, tell us so that we are prepared to address the issue if it becomes necessary.
What types of family issues do you handle?
We are experienced at and capable of handling any case — including divorces, adoptions, custody and support cases, relocation issues, the restructuring of family businesses, division of retirement accounts and other assets. If you face any of these situations, or have other family issues, please schedule a risk-free consultation.
I want a divorce. Now what?
A divorce is initiated by a Petition for Dissolution. Kentucky provides “no fault” divorces for its residents. This means that you don’t have to prove that your spouse did something wrong, you just have to believe and assert that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” The timeline for divorce cases is limited by the Kentucky Revised Statutes, so the sooner a divorce is initiated the sooner it can be finalized. A lawyer is beneficial, even in amicable divorces by helping finalize cases quickly and smoothly. A lawyer should protect you after the divorce by properly transferring deeds, retirement accounts, business interests or other assets — helping you avoid expensive future problems.
