A Careful, Comprehensive Approach To Contentious Divorces
Divorce is emotionally difficult in nearly any situation but when ending a marriage becomes contentious over one or multiple disputed issues, obtaining experienced legal guidance is critical to navigating the process ahead.
Over Three Decades Of Collective Experience To Help You Resolve Contested Divorce Matters
The attorneys at Hoge Partners, PLLC, are uniquely equipped to handle difficult divorces where an amicable resolution is unlikely. With over three decades of combined experience, we assist individuals throughout Jefferson County to determine the best route to take for individual circumstances.
What Is Involved In A Divorce?
The marriage between you and your spouse involves a legal partnership with the Commonwealth of Kentucky. As such, when dissolving your marriage, you must address and decide many issues.
Matters involving your divorce can be further complicated in hostile situations. With our considerable experience, we can help confront several key issues, including:
- Determining the care and support for your children. Child custody and support dictate the living arrangements and financial support of your children moving forward.
- Dividing your property and assets. All marital property must be accounted for and equitably divided, while separate property must be restored to its rightful owner.
- Awarding spousal maintenance. Contrary to what people may assume, spousal maintenance is not always guaranteed in a divorce. Alimony is determined on a case-by-case basis.
- Other complex considerations. Other considerations may involve the ownership of a business, or if one or both spouses are U.S. service members.
Pursuing An Efficient Resolution
Regardless of your specific matter, our team has helped many individuals resolve divorce and related matters between not-so-friendly spouses. We will work to find the most efficient resolution possible.
Alternative dispute resolution methods, including mediation or collaborative law, are preferable in seeking a resolution, especially when children are involved. However, high-conflict divorces often require litigation, where the court will rule on contested issues.
When this is necessary, we have the litigation skills and experience to advocate for your interests.
