Fair-Minded Negotiation While Protecting Your Rights in Divorce
"My spouse doesn't know that I'm here" is a phrase we have heard more than once. Even though Kentucky is a no-fault state, people often feel like they are at fault, or feel guilty, when faced with the end of a marriage. Our goal is to make the divorce process as smooth and stress free as possible, while making sure that your rights are protected at all times.
Gibson Law Offices, a Louisville law firm, has extensive experience with all family law matters, including divorce and military divorce law. We treat all parties with respect, and seek a fair-minded divorce settlement agreement. As a small law firm, we can respond immediately if emergency help is needed. Contact us for a free initial consultation to discuss your divorce concerns, including property division, child custody and support.
Resolving Divorce Issues Through Collaboration
Most often, we seek a resolution that can leave all members feeling as though it was equitable and fair. When children are involved, we have found that if the parents can behave with respect toward one another, collaboration is often the best way to proceed when creating parenting plans and other joint parenting activities.
As a Louisville divorce lawyer with training in collaborative law, Ken Gibson maintains a calm demeanor when negotiating with the opposing counsel. That being said, we understand that sometimes more aggressive tactics are necessary to protect our clients' interests. We are prepared to go to court if that is what is best for our clients.
Louisville Lawyer Handling All Divorce Matters
Our family law attorney, Ken Gibson, has a well-deserved reputation for being a good guy who gets things done. For nearly 20 years, he has helped individuals meet their legal needs. The types of divorce issues we have been able to help our clients with include:
- Divorce with children — biological children, adoptive children, step-children with couples seeking joint legal or physical custody and sole physical or legal custody
- Divorce with high assets — including a small business, trusts, pensions and retirement plans
- Divorce with bankruptcy filings — Ken Gibson, as an of counsel attorney with Kruger & Schwartz, works closely with his clients to coordinate the financial as well as legal aspects of bankruptcy and divorce.
- Divorce with criminal charges — including orders for protection filed by either spouse
As a criminal defense attorney, Ken Gibson has been retained by those who have been served with protection orders, and by those who wish to file for protection from a spouse or domestic partner. In this instance, we represent either the plaintiff or the defendant.
Kentucky Military Divorce Lawyer
Military divorces are often complex because of the special circumstances associated with serving on base in another state or overseas. Additionally, certain laws apply, such as the Uniformed Services Former Spouse's Protection Act (USFSPA), that dictate how retirement benefits should be distributed or where a divorce can be filed. We will guide you in all of these issues as we work through your divorce.
Did you know? After a period of time, out-of-state residents serving in the military at Fort Knox can qualify for a Kentucky divorce.
