Custody
Custody can refer to “legal custody,” “physical custody” or both. Legal custody generally refers to a parent’s ability to remain involved in a child’s life, have access to pertinent records and participate in life decisions. Physical custody generally refers to where the child will live the majority of the time. Parenting time and visitation are generic legal terms that indicate the actual days and times a parent will spend with their children during and after divorce.

Child Support
Kentucky statutes have specific child support guidelines based on the combined gross income of the parents. Please call us for more details about child support guidelines.

Property Division
During the marriage, both sides acquire assets and liabilities. You must assign which assets are either marital or non-marital and then equitably divide marital property. Equitable division refers to the process of how the assets and debts will be divided. The court will apply the law of equity so that a fair solution can be determined by the facts and circumstances of each case.

Modification
Circumstances often change and an award that was appropriate in the past may no longer be adequate for the current situation. In the event of a change in circumstance, a modification may be necessary. Alimony, child custody, child support, and visitation can all be modified. However, the right to modify alimony is frequently waived by agreement.
