Ky Court of Appeals in a published opinion vacates DVO against former husband for discarding abandoned property


Family Court entered a DVO against Husband citing Husband’s actions in discarding former Wife’s personal property from an abandoned trailer as support. Husband appealed arguing, “none of [former Wife’s] allegations rose to the level of domestic violence under the definition contained in KRS 403.270.” The Court of Appeals agreed holding that “no evidence of violence or harm was presented, nor was any testimony elicited regarding infliction of fear of imminent injury, abuse or assault.”
