Frequently Asked Questions – Criminal Defense

What can I expect at my arraignment?

Shortly after your arrest, you will appear in front of a judge or magistrate who will read the official charges to you. Once you have heard your charges, you will be able to submit a plea to the charges, usually in the form of guilty, not guilty, or no contest. Depending on the situation and your plans for defense, you and your attorney will be able to develop an early strategy to help build your case starting with your plea.

After an arrest, you should get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible. When there is a lawyer representing you, they will be able to take control of the situation and make sure that you do not make any statements that could possibly incriminate you or complicate your case. With a lawyer, you can be confident that you are working towards a positive outcome.

Do I need a lawyer in a criminal case?

There is no law that says a person must be represented by a lawyer in criminal court, but it is strongly suggested that they do so. In fact, people who are unable to afford their own legal counsel are assigned public defenders so that they have an opportunity for a fair trial.

No matter how straightforward your criminal case may seem, it is never recommended that a person does not work with an attorney regardless. The procedures in court can be overwhelming, and by hiring legal counsel you can give yourself the best chance of a comprehensive and fair trial

Frequently Asked Questions – Family Law


How long will my divorce take?

Depending on how many details there are that need to be sorted out, and how collaborative you and your spouse are throughout the process of your divorce, some may be quick and easy while others are drawn out in the Kentucky courts. This answer is very specific to your situation, but we are happy to talk to you about your situation and give you a better idea of what you can expect as this process moves forward. We will be happy to help you understand your options, as well as the issues that we will need to resolve in order to finalize your divorce.

How is child custody determined?

There are a variety of factors that go into the decision that a court makes about child custody, starting with the agreement between parents. If you are going through a divorce and there are children under 18 that will be impacted by the divorce, you and your spouse will need to come to a mutual agreement about how custody will be divided, or the courts will decide.

One of the family court’s top priorities is the welfare of children, so even if the parents or guardians are in agreement with the custody conditions, it must be reviewed and accepted by a judge. To make sure that you cover every aspect of your custody case, work with an attorney regardless of the level of collaboration between you and your spouse.

Can I restructure my child support payments?

Child support payments are made based on a variety of factors of each parent, not to mention the financial needs of the child who will be the recipient of this support. Therefore, it makes sense that these agreements can be revisited by the courts when financial situations occur with either of the parents or guardians involved in the custody agreement, as well as the financial situation of the child.

Contact us now to discuss your current child support agreement, and learn about how we can help you take your situation to family court to be revisited.
