Child Custody

Fighting for Your Right to Child Custody in Northern Kentucky

There are two types of custody Northern Kentucky: joint custody and sole custody.

  • Joint custody allows both of the parting spouses to make decisions for the children.
  • In the case of sole custody, only one of the parents become the sole decision maker.

A court also sets a parenting time schedule for the former spouses and evaluates conformity on a regular basis. The arrangement could result in the child residing primarily with one parent and spending time with the other on weekends. Or the court could split the parenting time equally between the parents. There is no preference given to a mother or a father with regard to deciding parenting times; each party gets equal consideration.

Kentucky Courts determine custody based on the best interests of the child. The court considers a number of factors, such as the children's involvement in school and community, the wishes of the child, and any instances of past abuse or neglect.
