Make Good Decisions During The Divorce Process

No matter whether you anticipate a quick and easy separation or a long fight over custody and division of assets, divorce is usually an emotional process. Even if you and your spouse agree on many things, it can be hard to fully understand the many ways in which your life will be different afterwards.

Attorney Britt Stevenson has been helping Kentucky individuals through contested and uncontested divorces for more than 25 years. Each situation is different: There are in-and-out divorces where everyone is happy with the outcome, and there are highly contested divorces where spouses fight tooth and nail over their kids or their assets.

Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, we can help you prepare for it, make sure you understand your rights and obligations, and stand by your side throughout the process.

What Is Most Important To You?

Your goals during divorce may be drastically different than your spouse's. We are here to help you protect what matters most to you. For some people, the most important thing is to be done with the process as quickly; others don't care how long and expensive a divorce is, as long as they get to keep the house.

You tell us what your ideal outcome would look like. We will tell you what you can reasonably expect under the law and work with you to pursue the best possible outcome for you.

We'll Give You The Information You Need

When you work with our lawyer, you can expect a bit of legal education — in a language you can understand, not legalese — so you can make good decisions down the road. For example, we may discuss:

  • The difference between marital property and nonmarital property, so you can learn what will and will not be divided up during the divorce process
  • How courts determine whether parents receive joint custody or sole custody, and why it's important to try work out a parenting plan with your spouse rather than let the court decide
  • How your lifestyle may need to change after divorce, and how you can prepare financially now

We can help you understand how the law works, but we can't tell you how you should live your life. We believe divorce works best when it is a collaborative process, and we want you to feel emboldened to move forward with your life.
