Divorce Lawyers Elizabethtown, KY

We are here to help!

Considering Divorce? We can help you through this serious, life altering decision.

As with any major life change, it is advisable to have a plan before you begin the process. Knowledge is power. A contested divorce can be a long and complex matter. It is helpful to have an understanding of your current financial situation and potential custody issues. It is important that you create a plan or exit strategy and gather important documentation before starting the divorce process.
Whether you have settled everything or not, we will take your hand and lead you through all loops and holes, all the confusion and all the mistakes you may make if you didn’t have a lawyer.

Getting Started:
One of the first things you will need to consider is whether your divorce will be a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce.

Uncontested Divorce:

Often, when people call our office, they will state that the divorce is uncontested just because the parties agree that they both want a divorce. While it may make the process easier if both parties agree to this ultimate outcome, this is not what attorneys are referring to when they ask whether a matter is uncontested. Instead, an uncontested divorce means that the parties have come to an agreement regarding all of the four major items related to a divorce:

  1. Child Custody
  2. Child Support
  3. Maintenance
  4. Equitable Division of Assets and Liabilities

Contested Divorce:

A contested divorce simply means that there are unresolved issues between the parties at the time of filing for divorce. The areas that must be resolved in a divorce are as follows:

  1. Child Custody
  2. Child Support
  3. Maintenance
  4. Equitable Division of Assets and Liabilities

If any part of the above listed items is in debate, then the divorce will be considered contested. Regardless of the reason(s) you matter is contested, if you and your spouse cannot resolve your differences (and these four major areas) your case will remain “contested” until such time as it is heard and decided by a judge
