Navigate Your Separation With A Kentucky Divorce Lawyer

For many people, divorce feels like a failure from the start. As you pursue a new family structure that you can live with, it is important to work with a family law attorney who can help you overcome your worries and make decisions in favor of your and your children’s best interests.

At McGee Law Office, you have the opportunity to work with an established, respected divorce lawyer practicing in Livingston County and surrounding counties who will guide you confidently through all legal processes leading up to your marital dissolution. Attorney McGee has extensive experience in dealing with custodial evaluators, social workers, child psychiatrists, child psychologists, accountants, real estate appraisers, private investigators and business valuations.

What You Can Do and What The Court Will Do

If you and your spouse agree on all terms of your divorce or legal separation, the court’s role may be kept to that of a record-keeper. However, if you do not agree on issues related to property division, spousal support and/or child custody and support, legal processes will take a greater role in your family’s transition. Through negotiations, mediation or a trial, you will arrive at a divorce decree that will have a great impact on the rest of your life.

Your divorce decree will cover issues including:

  • How your marital home, bank accounts, debts and personal property will be divided between you and your soon-to-be former spouse
  • How any complex assets such as businesses, investment properties, stocks, bonds and retirement accounts will be divided
  • Whether one of you will pay alimony to the other, and, if so, how much and for how long
  • Where your children will live and which of you will pay child support to the other

In Kentucky, once your divorce is underway, you will go through a waiting period known as a “cooling off” during which both of you must be living separately for 60 days before your divorce can be finalized. Attorney William F. McGee Jr. can help you comply with all legal requirements and get your new way of life off to a confident start.

Why Do I Need a Divorce Lawyer?

Divorce can be emotionally and legally challenging. In such times, having the support and guidance of a divorce attorney is invaluable. The expertise of a divorce lawyer can make all the difference in your case’s outcome and overall experience.

Here is why a divorce lawyer is essential during this challenging time:

  • Streamlined process: Divorce lawyers deeply understand family law and the legal procedures involved in divorce. Their expertise helps ensure everything is handled correctly and efficiently, minimizing delays and complications.
  • Less chance of surprises: Divorce lawyers can help reduce surprises during the divorce proceedings by foreseeing potential obstacles and negotiating on your behalf. Their proactive approach creates a sense of security, allowing you to focus on rebuilding your life.
  • You receive strategic asset protection: Divorce often includes asset division, which can be complex and contentious. A divorce attorney can assess your financial situation, develop strategies to safeguard your assets and ensure equitable distribution, protecting your financial interests.
  • You have specialized support for child custody issues: Child custody arrangements can be emotionally charged and challenging to navigate for divorcing couples with children. An experienced divorce and child custody can advocate for your parental rights, facilitate favorable agreements and ensure your children’s well-being remains a priority.
  • You have experienced court representation: In cases where litigation is necessary, divorce lawyers can represent you. They present arguments, evidence and legal precedents on your behalf, advocating for your interests before the judge or magistrate.
  • You always support post-divorce modifications and enforcement: Even after the divorce is finalized, circumstances may change, requiring modifications to custody arrangements, support agreements or other court orders. An attorney can help you seek modifications or enforce existing court orders when necessary.

With a divorce lawyer’s expertise, you can confidently navigate the divorce process, knowing your rights and interests are protected.
