Helping Clients Get Through All Aspects Of Divorce

All divorces are difficult emotionally, even when the parties agree on the issues. If you are facing a divorce, you want to work with a lawyer who understands the legal, financial and emotional consequences.

At the Tibbs Law Office in Louisville, our attorney and staff know that going through divorce is not easy. We will strive to make the process as smooth as possible for you. We will thoroughly explain your options and the pros and cons of each one so you can make informed decisions. You can rely on our knowledge of Kentucky family law and on our commitment to your case.

Typical Issues Involved In Divorce

Our divorce practice includes:

  • Uncontested and contested divorce
  • Protecting assets during property division, including retirement accounts and IRAs
  • Custody, visitation and child support
  • Spousal maintenance/alimony determinations and modifications
  • Representation at divorce mediation
  • Taking divorce cases to trial when appropriate

Marital property is divided according to equitable distribution law. Under equitable distribution, marital assets are divided in a manner the court deems fair; this may not mean an equal split. We will explain which of your assets are marital property and which are separate property. Attorney Tibbs will argue for a distribution of the marital assets that is fair to you. He can assist you with simple and complex assets.

Under Kentucky law, either party may be awarded spousal maintenance/alimony. Typically, spousal maintenance is awarded on a temporary basis until the party receiving it is able to support him or herself. There are exceptions, however. We can discuss them with you if necessary.
