You need a lawyer who is experienced in both arenas. Krsna Tibbs and his team can represent you in all family and criminal court matters, such as cases regarding domestic violence and child abuse. These cases can start in family court as a civil matter (EPO, DVO) and violations of those protective orders can lead to criminal charges and jail time.
One of the most common areas of family law practice is divorce law. Those who are going through a divorce need an attorney who offers deep legal expertise, including knowledge of how to file papers and ensure the best legal outcome. At the same time, they need a family lawyer who will listen to them, remain in constant communication, and provide empathy and compassion throughout the process.
Attorney Krsna Tibbs provides both seasoned legal experience and an approachable, client-centered style—and that’s what makes him a top divorce lawyer in Louisville and the surrounding area.
There are two types of custody in the commonwealth of Kentucky: joint custody and sole custody. Joint custody allows both parents to make decisions for the children regarding the child’s school, health, religion, and welfare. In the case of sole custody, a single custodian becomes the sole decision maker. Kentucky courts use the best interest of the child as the standard to determine custody. If you are seeking sole custody or trying to prevent sole custody, there are many factors that are relevant to determine what the court may award in your particular case. There is no preference given to a mother or a father with regard to deciding parenting times; each party gets equal consideration under Kentucky law.
Our expertise in custody disputes includes parenting and visitation agreements, modification of a parenting schedule, changing previous custody orders by the court, and setting child support based on Kentucky State guidelines, even modifying child support if deemed excessive or abusive by the other parent.
Allow our law office to strategize on your particular case to protect your rights and get you the custody agreement that best suit your child’s needs.
Under the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA), a person found to have been substantiated for neglect and abuse by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) or CPS (Child Protective Services), is entitled to an administrative hearing on that issue within 30 days of receiving the finding by CHFS. A lawyer is not required for these hearings, but we encourage you to seek legal counsel since the nuances of writing an appeal to the Cabinet is not easy and a lawyer trained in dealing with CHFS could be very helpful in achieving a successful outcome.
A finding of neglect/abuse by CHFS can have long-term consequences on a person’s employment, especially in the fields of nursing and teaching. Even the ability to chaperone a child on a school trip could be prohibited years and decades down the road due to an internal finding by CHFS. So many times, we have found that these findings of neglect/abuse were not properly investigated and factors such as personality, bias, and emotion spearheaded the investigation rather than facts and the law. A lot of these findings are wrongful and poorly investigated but the parent has to suffer the consequences and stigma of being labeled an abusive or neglectful parent.
Our law office has been successful on several cases without a hearing and have won administrative hearings contested by CHFS. Prior to our representation, the client, based on the findings of CHFS, his/her employment status was in limbo contingent on a successful outcome of our appeal. Thankfully, we have been successful in helping every client in these matters defeat a finding of neglect/abuse by CHFS and remove the status of abusive or neglectful parent that otherwise would remain permanently on their record.
