Navigating The Future After A Divorce
Family changes are never easy. When going through a divorce, there are numerous choices that must be made. Wilhoit Law Office is here to help you through this transition. We have worked with clients throughout Kentucky for over six generations. Our job is to answer your questions so you can make smart decisions about your future. Most importantly, it’s essential that you feel like you have an advocate in your corner.
Kentucky is a no-fault state. This means that you do not have to name a specific reason for filing for divorce; you must only decide that your marriage is irretrievably broken. Even if your divorce is uncontested, it is still a good idea to have a lawyer by your side. We can make sure that all of your marital property is properly accounted for and all forms are completed and filed accurately. It is especially important to have an attorney you can trust for cases that aren’t amicable.
What About Child Custody?
Understandably, clients are most concerned about their children and what will happen to them. In an ideal world, you and your spouse could agree on a custody arrangement that would work best for both of your schedules. When that doesn’t happen, we will do everything we can to not only represent your best interests but also the best interests of your child. Whether you are filing for sole custody or want to make joint custody work, we can help you understand your options and what that might look like.
Child Support: What You Need To Know
Making sure your children can be financially supported by both parents. Support agreements can be arranged without having to go in front of a judge. When that isn’t possible, the court will look at a number of factors. These factors include how much each spouse makes, the standard of living that needs to be maintained after separation and the current needs of the child. Our job is to make sure each parent is paying their fair share. Support agreements can be updated as time goes on.
