Few legal issues hit as close to home as those involving family law. At the Campisano Law Office in Louisville, we have more than 25 years of experience guiding families and individuals through matters involving:
Divorce in Kentucky
The state of Kentucky is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that couples seeking a divorce do not have to prove fault in order to obtain a divorce. Individuals filing for a Kentucky divorce are required to have resided in or been stationed in the state as a member of the armed services for a minimum of 180 days prior to filing the petition for divorce. If you are the filing spouse, it is usually best to file in the county in which you reside. A knowledgeable Louisville divorce attorney like Frank Campisano at the Campisano Law Office can help ensure your contested or uncontested divorce proceeds smoothly.
Whether you and your partner are divorced, separated or have never resided together, finding a custody agreement that works for both of you — and your child — can be challenging. At the Campisano Law Office, we understand how important it is for your child to maintain regular contact with both parents, so we work hard to obtain a child custody and visitation agreement that protects your time and relationship with your child.
The courts in Kentucky consider several factors when determining child support:
- Number of children requiring support
- Gross monthly income of both parents
- Amount of alimony and child support paid by the non-custodial parent as a result of a previous marriage
- Amount of alimony and child support paid by the custodial parent from a prior marriage
- Cost of daycare
- Cost of health insurance
It is important to remember that child support agreements are not set in stone. If one parent's finances change dramatically, the amount of child support may be reduced or increased. Likewise, if a change occurs such as the child no longer attending daycare, child support may be adjusted to reflect this.
