Hopkinsville Divorce Attorney

Experienced Bankruptcy Attorney in Hopkinsville

Divorce can be the most difficult time in a person’s life. In addition to the loss of a close personal relationship, those facing divorce confront an uncertain future and a complex legal process. Let the law firm of Ison, & Cavanah help guide you during these trying days.

Duncan Cavanah will navigate the family and financial issues to ensure your stability and help you arrive at the best possible outcome.

Types of Divorce

Under Kentucky law, either spouse may file for divorce (also known as dissolution of marriage), and courts do not consider matters of “fault.” It is important to determine whether you’re facing a contested divorce or uncontested divorce.

Spouses in a contested divorce disagree on fundamental issues and require the help of an outside party such as a mediator or Family Court Judge to reach an agreement. Both sides will likely hire their own attorney.

In an uncontested divorce, the couple is able to reach an agreement on all issues involved in the dissolution of their marriage. In such instances, only one attorney, paid a flat fee, may be required.


Every parent wants to protect their child during the difficult process of divorce. Duncan Cavanah can help preserve your rights as a parent by negotiating or litigating domestic custody and visitation rights.

In many cases, child support for children is appropriate. When determining child support payments, courts consider the number of children in a family, the income of each parent, childcare costs, and healthcare costs to determine the amount of support required by law.

Duncan Cavanah will work to give your child everything he or she deserves.

Duncan Cavanah can also assist in action to adopt children, both by step-parents or other family members and privately. Adoption often involves the consent of a biological parent to give up his or her parental rights. Without consent, adoption is still possible, but is often more difficult.

With a thorough knowledge of custody and support policies, we can help both parents maintain a close and loving relationship with their children.


Matters of finance also come up during divorce proceedings. Years of experience and a track record of success will be on your side as we work to secure a fair division of assets.

Our clients retain non-marital property and receive their fair share assets acquired during the marriage. You might be entitled to spousal maintenance and our legal team can help you make your case.

In some instances, parties in a divorce might seek protective orders due to domestic violence and other difficult circumstances. Protect yourself by contacting our office and putting a divorce attorney in your corner.
