Things to Know
- Grounds for Divorce: In Kentucky, you can file for divorce based on either no-fault or fault grounds. No-fault grounds include irretrievable breakdown of the marriage or living separately for at least 60 days. Fault grounds may include adultery, cruelty, abandonment, or addiction.
- Residency Requirements: To file for divorce in Kentucky, either you or your spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least 180 days before filing. Additionally, you or your spouse must be a resident of the county where you plan to file for at least 90 days.
- Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce: Divorces in Kentucky can be either contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree on major issues such as property division, child custody, and support. Uncontested divorces are typically quicker, less expensive, and less adversarial. However, if you and your spouse cannot agree on these issues, you may face a contested divorce, which can be more time-consuming and require court intervention.
- Division of Property: Kentucky follows equitable distribution laws, meaning that marital property is divided fairly but not necessarily equally. It's important to understand the difference between marital and separate property, gather financial documentation, and work with your attorney to ensure a fair division of assets and debts.
- Child Custody and Support: If you have children, determining child custody and support is a significant aspect of the divorce process. Kentucky courts prioritize the best interests of the child when making custody decisions. Understanding the factors considered in custody determinations and the guidelines for child support in Kentucky is crucial. Working with your attorney to develop a parenting plan that promotes the well-being of your child is essential.
- Spousal Support: Spousal support, also known as maintenance or alimony, may be awarded in certain divorces. Kentucky courts consider factors such as the duration of the marriage, the financial resources of each spouse, and the standard of living during the marriage when determining spousal support. Understanding Kentucky's spousal support laws and seeking guidance from your attorney is important.
- Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution: Kentucky encourages mediation and alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve divorce-related issues outside of court. Mediation can provide a more amicable and cost-effective way to reach agreements on matters such as property division and child custody. Working with a trained mediator or collaborative divorce professional can help facilitate productive discussions.
- Post-Divorce Modifications: After the divorce is finalized, circumstances may change, necessitating modifications to child custody, support, or spousal support orders. Understanding the process for seeking modifications and working with your attorney to address these changes is important.
- Self-Care and Emotional Support: Divorce can take an emotional toll, and it's crucial to prioritize self-care and seek emotional support during this time. Lean on friends, family, or professional counselors to help you navigate the emotional challenges that arise throughout the divorce process.
