Since Kentucky is an equitable division state, marital assets are divided equitably as opposed to equally. There are several factors that go into determining how marital assets are split, which may include the length of the marriage as well as how much a given item is worth. If a spouse chose to stay at home during the marriage, his or her contributions to the household may be considered when determining how to divide joint property.
Divorce may be the only viable way forward, but it is not easy. It untangles the complexities of a shared life that includes kids, finances, property, and even an attic filled with boxes. It can be stressful and emotional with decisions that can impact your life for years to come.
