Published Family Law Opinion from Ky Court of Appeals Today: Choice of Law to Determine Whether State Disability Retirement Benefits are Marital Property

Kirilenko v. Kirilenko

In a KY divorce, the trial court erred in applying KY law to characterize CN state disability retirement benefits as nonmarital property. Instead, the Restatement (Second) of Conflict of Laws "most significant relationship"  test should be applied and CN law is more appropriate.
