Divorce Attorney Ohio and Kentucky

I am often asked if there are any attorneys who practice domestic law - divorce, custody and juvenile - in both Ohio and Kentucky.  I DO!  I have handled a number of cases in both Ohio and Kentucky and am frequently brought into cases where jurisdiction may be at issue.  This is important as there are times when you do not want to have to hire two separate attorneys but do not know where the case will ultimately be decided. There are differences in the law in Kentucky and Ohio, particularly with respect to custody.  Kentucky generally operates under the presumption that both parents are equally fit and should jointly raise the child(ren).  In Ohio, however, an unwed mother has preferential rights to custody over the father.  By law, the mother has sole legal custody until and unless modified by Court Order.  The father is presumed to be entitled to visitation only after a finding of best interest. Divorce also differs between the states. Hamilton County has a procedure for temporary orders, referred to as 75N.  Under 75N, a court can and will generally order temporary parenting schedules, child support and spousal support.  75N orders also may account for division of expenses. These are only typically handled in Kentucky courts after a temporary hearing on the issues. If you are unsure of whether your case proceeds in Ohio or Kentucky, speak to an attorney licensed in both states who handles divorce and custody cases in both states.  For a consultation, contact Michael Bouldin at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453.
