Child Custody

Issues involving children are the most stressful and difficult in family law. The depth of love a parent has for their child is a marvelous and wonderful thing. However, major conflict occurs when a parent feels strongly that the other parent’s decision-making or behavior is contrary to the child’s best interest. Custody negotiations are often lengthy and drawn-out in high conflict cases. While custody disputes are emotionally taxing on parents, more importantly, they can be painful and confusing for the children involved. If you are considering separation or divorce, you owe it to your children to speak to an experienced family law attorney.

In Kentucky there is a presumption (rebuttable by a preponderance of evidence) that parents should share joint custody and equal parenting time. Legal custody refers to the ability of a parent to make decisions regarding the child’s education, healthcare, religion, and other important major life decisions.

Kentucky family courts adhere to Kentucky Revised Statue (KRS) 403.270 which provides factors that Courts must apply to determine custody in accordance with the best interests of the child.
