Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&A

I have been a Kentucky lawyer in good standing with the Kentucky Bar Association for over 30 years. I am a solo practitioner who drafts all his pleadings and personally handles all his cases. When you hire me, you work with me, not a secretary, paralegal, or some other attorney you did not hire. I am a referral attorney for several different legal plans and have been so for over 12 years, which attests to my trustworthiness and dedication. I am easy to talk to and I give practical, meaningful advice. I do not tell you something just because I think you want to hear it. In other words, I do not give you a snow job, but I tell it like it is. I believe that is best for my clients, and my clients tell me all the time that they appreciate my honesty.

Legal Answers
Q. If I’m pregnant can I file for divorce from my Husband?
A: Yes, you can file but the official decree of divorce would not likely be finalized until the baby is born and paternity testing is done to determine whether your husband is the child's father.
Q. Can sons girlfriend take daughter that has joint custody out of state without him being in agreement ?
A: Yes, she can get into trouble with regards to the child that is subject to an order if she is violating the order by moving the child out-of-state. With regards to the other two children, if there is no order in place she is not violating anything so your son should seek a court order right away. Please have your son call me right away.
