Family Law

When it comes to family, nothing in life is more important. So when you're faced with a legal battle that threatens those relationships, the outcome can have effects that last a lifetime. That's why having an experienced family law attorney working for you can make all the difference in the world when it comes to settling these issues quickly and amicably. When facing these legal issues, it's important to understand what you're up against if you want to find the best possible solution for both you and your family. Issues like divorce, separation, child custody, and child visitation rights can be extremely complex. Unfortunately, the legal system doesn't always make it simple to navigate these issues on your own, and attempting to do so can only lead to frustration and disappointment during an already difficult time.

For over 20 years I've been working with individuals and families across the Owensboro area to help them resolve a variety of different family law issues so that they can begin to put their problems behind them and move forward with their life. As a seasoned family law practitioner, I have extensive experience in a variety of different areas, including:

  • High asset divorce
  • Low asset divorce
  • Separation proceedings
  • Child custody battles
  • Child visitation agreements
  • Paternal and maternal rights
  • Grandparents' rights

Don't Tackle Life-Changing Legal Issues On Your Own

As an experienced family law attorney, I urge all of my clients to come to me with any questions or concerns involving family legal issues. My practice is geared toward helping others overcome legal challenges in a courteous and professional manner. To that end, I provide practical, step-by-step guidance on the following issues:

  • Divorce: I can walk you through the numerous legal considerations you will face during the confusing and often stressful process of ending a marriage. My goal is to simplify the process as much as possible, giving you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions. I never forget that this is your life, and as such, will try to work with you on all important decisions.
  • Collaborative divorce: In some divorce cases, you may be able to reach a more satisfying outcome through a nontraditional approach. I can help you determine whether collaborative divorce — that is, striving to resolve issues in a less contentious manner — is right for you. I am proud to help people agree whenever possible, rather than fight over every last detail.
  • Fathers' rights: Fathers often feel swept aside when it comes to divorce and child custody issues. I firmly believe in the importance of fathers' rights, and I can be a strong advocate for your interests.
  • Grandparents' rights: As a grandparent, you may play an important role in the lives of your grandchildren. I can guide you in taking that role one step further by pursuing child custody or visitation rights.

Women's and mothers' rights: Women also have important rights in divorce, as both wives and mothers. You can turn to me for dedicated representation through all the legal aspects of your case.

Navigating The Issue of Father's Rights

Under Kentucky Law, every father has the same and equal rights to their children, but so many men do not know or feel that that is true.  Unfortunately, these rights often do not start automatically and a man usually has to take a legal action to assert his rights and to protect them. This means that it is crucial to get your rights established by a court order or by an agreed court order. Too often I see fathers that do not get their father's rights established by court order, and instead, rely upon some kind of verbal agreement with the mother of their child.

This inevitably leads to chaos and often conflict because when there is no agreement, the father gets his rights dictated to him rather than enforced.  Many men are often told when they will get to see their kids and under what circumstances. I've never believed that that's fair, and instead forces men into a situation where seeing their children is less of a "right" and more of a "privilege."  Would you really want to rely upon the word of the mother to ensure your rights to see your children? The truth is, a legally binding court order is always the best way to ensure your parental rights will be protected. Don't feel like you have to face these issues alone.
