We Help You Settle Your Divorce Equitably

Central to Kentucky’s divorce laws is a standard of equity. When handling the division of marital property in a divorce, for instance, a judge does not merely divide property exactly in half. Rather, courts will apportion assets and property in a way that considers aspects of the marriage before determining what type of division would be fair. 

Child Support & Alimony Legal Support in Louisville

The same is true for when judges decide who might pay child support or alimony and how much, as well as what child custody should look like for divorced families. Despite the state’s aim, it is not always the case that divorce settlements end equitably. For families in Kentucky, this is why it is important to seek the help of an experienced legal advocate.

At Hodge & Smither, our Louisville family law attorneys have guided numerous families through complex mediations and provided skilled representation for them in court as well. If you are seeking divorce and need help, our attorneys can be there for you.

The Support You Need During the Adoption Process 

The state of Kentucky requires parents do go through rigorous vetting before they are even able to submit an application for adoption. The most significant part of the vetting is what’s called a home study, a process that asks potential adoptive parents to receive multiple kinds of background checks, provide a variety of references, and complete an in-home review. Beyond this vetting, all six different types of adoption in state have their own extensive legal requirements.

The Family Law Specialists You Can Trust in Louisville

The Louisville family law attorneys at Hodge & Smither know that the adoption process is arduous and complicated. Our clients choose us, however, because we can provide them with the legal support they need for their adoption when it matters most.
