Child Custody

We want the best for our children - from growing up in a safe environment to receiving a good education. Child custody disputes are one of the most litigious issues in family law. In Kentucky, the presumption is joint custody with equal timesharing.

In child custody disputes, the court considers the best interest of the child which includes factors such as:

  1. The wishes of the child's parent or parents, and any de facto custodian, as to his or her custody;

  2. The wishes of the child as to his or her custodian, with due consideration given to the influence a parent or de facto custodian may have over the child's wishes;

  3. The interaction and interrelationship of the child with his or her parent or parents, his or her siblings, and any other person who may significantly affect the child's best interests;

  4. The motivation of the adults participating in the custody proceeding;

  5. The child's adjustment and continuing proximity to his or her home, school, and community;

  6. The mental and physical health of all individuals involved;

  7. The extent to which the child has been cared for, nurtured, and supported by any de facto custodian;

  8. The intent of the parent or parents in placing the child with a de facto custodian; ... etc.

Child Welfare & Juvenile Representation

Dependency, neglect, or abuse proceedings, termination of parental rights, status offense cases, or public offense cases in juvenile court


Both contested divorces and uncontested divorces can be stressful.  However, most divorces do not go to trial and many can be settled prior to filing for divorce.

Child Custody

Children represent a major part of our life. Since 2018, Kentucky has a rebuttable presumption for joint custody and equal timesharing.

Child Support

Raising a child can be extremely expensive. You shouldn't have to shoulder the burden alone.


More and more couples are filing for divorce without hiring an attorney. Consulting allows for the same level of guidance without the typical costs of an attorney.
