Compassionate Guidance Throughout Your Divorce
Whether you are looking to file for divorce or have been served with divorce
papers, Smith & Wilcutt, LLC can help. Kentucky is a no-fault state,
which means that neither spouse needs to prove that the other spouse is
guilty or at fault for causing the breakdown of the marriage in order
to file for divorce. If you feel that your marriage is irretrievably broken,
we can assist you with filing for divorce. Spouses who are filing for
divorce are known as petitioners, and receiving parties are referred to
as respondents. Each divorce case is different and can be settled in a
variety of ways. Whether you choose to work your case out through mediation
or fight for fair terms through litigation, Smith & Wilcutt, LLC can
provide you with the representation you need.
If both spouses are residents of Kentucky, then the divorce petition may
be filed in any county in the state. The only time a divorce petition
needs to be handled by a specific court is when one spouse contests the
divorce. In contested cases, the divorce will most likely be transferred
to a county where either the respondent or petitioner resides.
In order to file a petition, you and your attorney will discuss the necessary
filing fees and various complications that could potentially arise during
a divorce. Even amicable divorces can quickly escalate when spouses dispute
matters of separating assets and determining child custody. In order to
best protect yourself and your future, it is important that you work with
an experienced attorney from our firm.
