What is Case Management in Kentucky Dissolution?

Kentucky Family Court Rules provide for Case Management Conference within 60 days of service of the Petition unless the parties give notice to the Court that the case is being mediated.  FCRPP2(6) - Case Management.  The rule provides that the petitioner has the burden of filing for the conference, however in Kenton County, frequently in Division 2 - Judge Mehling will schedule a case for a Case Management Conference (CMC) within those 60 days with notice being sent out only weeks after the Petition is filed. The parties and their counsel are required to attend and should be prepared to discuss: filing of discovery, filing of Verified Financial Disclosures, what will be necessary to prepare the case for trial, what are the issues to be litigated (support, custody, division of assets, identification of assets, debts) and if there are any temporary issues requiring litigation. Failure to appear at the CMC may result in any of the following: contempt motion, dismissal of the dissolution, court costs and legal fees being assessed.  Also found within these rules is the clear preference for mediation.  Clients should speak with their attorney about mediation and involvement in the process to attempt to resolve their differences.  Special care should be made to advise the court if the case is proceeding as a collaborative dissolution. If you have questions about a case management conference, ASK YOUR LAWYER.  If you do not have an attorney or wish to discuss your dissolution, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email at mike@bouldinlawfirm.com .  Speak to Emily to schedule a consultation.
