Facing a divorce is an overwhelming situation for most people. Whether you have been married for many years and have significant assets or your marriage was shorter, you must resolve the same basic legal issues.
At David M. Taylor, P.S.C., we help people find solutions to contested and uncontested divorce. We understand that the end of a marriage comes with many expenses, including legal fees. However, we work efficiently and keep cases moving. Our lawyer is typically able to settle divorce cases through negotiation, which is faster and less expensive than going to trial. If you have child custody and support needs, we can represent you in these matters as well.
Contested And Uncontested Divorce
When the parties agree to all terms of a divorce, they can file an uncontested divorce. In these cases, our attorney will prepare the documents and file them with the court. We offer flat fees for uncontested divorce work.
While we try to avoid trial when possible, in some cases, litigation is the answer. You can come to our law firm with a contested divorce and rely on our attorney’s extensive experience. When a trial is necessary, Mr. Taylor will fight hard to protect your interests.
Property Division And Spousal Maintenance
In Kentucky, marital property is divided by equitable distribution. This means “fairly,” not “50-50.” We will help you determine which assets are marital property and which are separate.
Either spouse may be entitled to spousal maintenance/alimony. In most cases, maintenance is awarded on a temporary basis until the receiving spouse is able to support himself or herself.
