Uncontested divorce in Kentucky

If you want to divorce in KY, there are two options you may choose from:

  • Contested divorce. When a couple is unable to reach an agreement regarding child custody and support, alimony, or property division, they have to initiate a contested divorce process. It means that it is necessary to hire lawyers that will represent each spouse in court and participate in a number of proceedings. Therefore, such kind of divorce is extremely expensive and lasts for months.
  • Uncontested dissolution. When divorcees are in a full agreement concerning all the issues, they qualify for an uncontested dissolution. This option actually has a lot of advantages over the contested one. First of all, it takes less time because spouses do not need to visit multiple divorce hearings. Usually, such kind of divorce is finalized as soon as the waiting period of the state is over. Moreover, it’s much cheaper as having reached an agreement regarding important divorce matters, the spouses do not need legal help.

Even if you decide to file for uncontested dissolution, you still need to face a very challenging process of filling in the documents. If you can’t afford to hire a lawyer and choose to look for these forms on the Web, you may end up finding many outdated and incorrect papers. The problem is that such forms will definitely be rejected by the court. If you want to avoid such a hassle, use OnlineDivorcer.

If you intend to file for uncontested divorce in Kentucky without legal help, follow these steps:

  • Prepare and fill in all the needed documents.
  • File the divorce petition and other documents with the court of the county where you reside in.
  • Serve the documents to your spouse. In Kentucky, you have to hire a county sheriff or a professional process server for this purpose.

  • Attend the hearing together with your spouse. You may be required to testify briefly. After that, the judge will review the paperwork and finalize your divorce.

How to complete a do it yourself divorce in Kentucky?

Taking into account the fact that hiring a divorce lawyer is quite expensive, many couples consider completing Kentucky self-help divorce. However, is this option really the best one can opt for? Let’s review it to find out:

  • First of all, you need to check: 1) whether you meet the residency requirements of the state 2) whether you and your spouse are in a full agreement concerning any divorce-related issues.
  • Then you have to visit the official website of your state. Here, you have to look for any available information on dissolution and find all the required divorce forms. If you don’t know what forms do you need, it’s best to get legal advice or read through each form carefully.
  • If you and your spouse have children, check state child custody/support guidelines. You will also need to find child-related forms to fill out. Finally, find out whether you have to attend parenting classes and what their price and duration are.
  • Now you can fill out all the paperwork. Please mind that you have to be extremely careful during this process and google each unknown term; otherwise, even if you are mistaken in only one form, the whole package will be rejected by the court.
  • Check whether you need to attend any legal classes to represent yourself in court.
  • Now you can print, sign, and file the documents.

As you can see, a DIY dissolution in Kentucky is far from being easy. That is why many couples consider ordering the paperwork online.

Getting a divorce in Kentucky with a child

  • If parents agreed on all child-related questions, they complete the Marital Settlement Agreement. If spouses are unable to make terms, then the judge makes a decision taking into account the best interests of the child. They also consider the relationships of the child with both parents, mental and physical state of each party, household and school location, etc.
  • Parents also have to set visitation schedules in some Kentucky counties. In the state, a non-custodial parent is usually allowed to visit the child on the weekends, one night during the week; also, parents have to divide holiday time.
  • Child support is calculated based on each parent’s income, child care expenses, and other factors. There are KY child custody and support guidelines that define the amount that will be paid by one parent to the other to cover child’s needs.
