Divorce Panel

We help people obtain a divorce when necessary for the stability or safety of the family. Kentucky had the 6th highest divorce rate in the country in 2019 with 3.4 divorces per 1,000 inhabitants of Kentucky.  Divorces can help people and children leave bad, potentially even violent, situations; establish independence; and provide a positive economic impact for the family.
