Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect at an initial consultation?

You will meet with the attorney with whom you have scheduled an appointment. The attorney will get some preliminary information about your situation, and then discuss your questions and concerns. If you are newly considering divorce, you may want the attorney to walk you through the basics of how a divorce process would work – and that’s okay! No question is too basic or too simple. These are complex matters that relate to some of the most important things in your life.

How long does an initial consultation last?

Our initial consultations last until your questions are answered. We schedule in-person meetings at our Louisville office. We also schedule telephonic, Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime meetings.

What information do I need to bring to my initial consultation?

You do not need to bring anything. If you are divorced and have questions about a post-divorce matter, it is helpful to bring a copy of your Marital Settlement Agreement or Final Court Order. If you have specific financial questions, it may be helpful to take a copy of your most recent tax return.

What does a family law attorney cost?

As with most divorce attorneys, our office operates on a retainer basis. We will collect an initial retainer (to be determined at the initial consultation based upon the complexity of the issues presented) which remains your money until it is earned. Bills are mailed monthly. Subsequent retainers will be required monthly to restore the escrow balance to the agreed upon sum. Any portion of any retainer unearned at the conclusion of the case will be refunded.

Additional charges, terms, and conditions apply to our representation which will be fully set forth in a written fee agreement if you retain us.

We charge our regular hourly rates for consultations.

How long does it take to get divorced?

In Kentucky, the Court cannot grant a decree until the parties have lived apart for 60 days. The 60 days can include time living under the same home, if separated. The exact length of your divorce will depend on a variety of factors including the type of issues, length of discovery, and size of the marital estate.
