Property Issues

In Kentucky all property including cash and accounts obtained during the marriage, with some notable exceptions, is arguably martial property.  It is generally divided into just proportions upon the dissolution of the marriage. “Just Proportions” is not necessarily an equal distribution to each spouse. Separate property is not divided by the Court and is typically “restored” to the appropriate spouse.

While in divorce court the judge will decide which property is classified as marital and what is nonmarital. It is crucial that you have an attorney who can aggressively litigate for you and your property.
