Can a courtroom battle be avoided in a high asset divorce?

Did you accumulate significant assets both before and during your marriage? Do you own a business? Are you now facing a high asset divorce? If so, you have a lot at stake in a Kentucky divorce. It may be in your best interests to try to avoid a courtroom battle.

Getting retirement benefits in a military divorce could change

Being married to a member of the Armed Forces comes with numerous benefits. Depending on the length of service and marriage, those benefits become an important issue in a military divorce, whether here in Kentucky or elsewhere. A recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court could change the retirement benefits that many ex-spouses receive under the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act.

What do a commanding officer and JAG do in a military divorce?

The simple answer is not much. A Kentucky service member's divorce and separation are considered private, civil matters. For this reason, a commanding officer and attorneys with the Judge Advocate General's office do not have much involvement, if any, in a military divorce. The main involvement the military has in a divorce surrounds benefits, pay and property.

How can an attorney help save your business in a divorce?

You more than likely spent a great deal of time, money and effort growing your business into something you are proud of and is successful. Now that you face a divorce, you may be concerned that your soon-to-be former spouse may receive a portion of your business, which could potentially jeopardize the futures of you and your business. A Kentucky attorney can help you protect your interests when it comes to your business.

Establish paternity now to avoid problems in the future

Many Kentucky couples are in committed relationships, yet remain unmarried. These couples often have children, and may not realize that the state does not automatically assume that the mother's partner is the biological father of the child. Simply putting the father's name on the birth certificate is not enough to legally establish paternity.

Stalling your divorce may backfire

As unpleasant as it may be to realize, when your spouse asked for a divorce, it was likely a decision that came from months, perhaps years of agonizing and soul searching. While the announcement may have taken you by surprise, your spouse was probably ready and determined to get through the divorce as quickly as possible.
