Is Your Divorce Contested Or Uncontested?

In Kentucky, divorces are classified as either contested or uncontested. Sometimes spouses can mutually agree on every item within their divorce agreement before going their separate ways, but often there are sticking points where an agreement cannot be reached.

My name is attorney Todd K. Bolus. Whether you and your spouse wish to amicably resolve your divorce issues or you believe court intervention is necessary, I will use more than 20 years of family law experience to help you reach your goals.

I have practiced law in the Louisville, Kentucky, area since 1988 and I have an in-depth knowledge of the law governing marital separation. I have represented clients who needed help with child custody arrangements, visitation, property division or alimony.

I have helped clients who were married for many years, newlyweds, and couples with significant wealth or who ran a family-owned business. Whatever your situation entails, I will provide honest advice and will work hard to get your divorce concerns resolved as quickly as possible.

Contact my Jefferson County law office online or call to schedule your initial consultation. I will discuss your current situation and identify your underlying family law needs.

How Should Your Divorce Be Classified?

An uncontested divorce, also referred to as a simple divorce, is when both spouses agree on all issues that are required to end their marriage. This does not mean that the couple did not have to work out details or make concessions; it merely means that judicial intervention was not required. I will take note of your goals/needs and lead negotiations with your spouse and his or her counsel. Many people prefer to negotiate their own agreement to speed up the divorce process and save money by avoiding certain court costs.

Contested divorce occurs when a couple is unable to agree on one or more items, such as spousal maintenance or child support, which requires the court to determine the final arrangements. As an experienced divorce lawyer, I know what the court looks for in these instances, and I will be well-prepared to protect your rights in court. I realize that your divorce agreement will affect your life for many years, so I make sure your voice, opinions and circumstances are heard.
