Divorce in Kentucky
The state of Kentucky requires couples seeking a divorce to meet certain residency requirements. In order to file, one party must have resided in the state or been stationed in the state as a member of the armed forces for at least 180 days preceding the filing. Couples filing for divorce must also demonstrate that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
Kentucky is an equitable distribution state. Simply put, this means that the state divides the marital property in a financially equitable manner. This does not necessarily mean "equal." The parties involved are encouraged to settle property issues and debts without the help of the court. Otherwise, the court declares the property award.
