can you get an annulment without the other person
In Kentucky, obtaining an annulment without the participation or consent of the other person can be a complex and challenging process. An annulment is a legal procedure that declares a marriage null and void, essentially erasing it as if it never existed. However, unlike a divorce, which ends a valid marriage, an annulment requires proving specific grounds such as
- or lack of consent at the time of the marriage
While it may be possible to initiate an annulment without the other person's active involvement, it can be difficult to succeed without their cooperation. To successfully obtain an annulment, you typically need to provide evidence and present a compelling case in court. This might involve gathering witnesses, documents, and other forms of proof to substantiate your claims.
It's important to consult with a qualified Owensboro divorce attorney who can guide you through the annulment process and help you understand the legal requirements and potential challenges. An attorney can assess your situation, advise you on the best course of action, and represent your interests in court if necessary.
How Are Assets Divided in a Divorce in Kentucky?
Kentucky is an equitable distribution state, meaning the marital property is divided fairly and equitably, but not equally.
Courts will consider several factors to determine what is fair and honest, such as the length of the marriage.
In practice, judges often divide marital property, with approximately 2/3 of marital assets going to the higher-earning spouse and 1/3 to the lower-earning spouse.
The court can also divide the property if the spouses can't agree on a property division.
Our family law firm has handled divorce cases for medical practice owners, lawyers with partnerships, and executives with substantial estates.
We work with financial analysts and valuation specialists to determine the optimal division of accounts, assets, and property in Owensboro.

Bankruptcy & Divorce in kentucky
Not many family law firms are able to handle cases that involve both divorce and bankruptcy. If you are a bankruptcy debtor who has filed or plans to file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we can handle your cases and protect your assets.
We will advise you as to when it is best to file, if you should file jointly or separately or if the results of your divorce indicate that you may need to file bankruptcy.
How is Property Divided in Divorce in Kentucky?
KY is an equitable division state. This means that each spouse should be receiving the a fair and equitable share of the wealth and debts accumulated over the duration of the marriage. This may not lead to 50/50.
Debts that were incurred by a spouse before he or she became married generally remain the responsibility of that individual. This is the same for property acquired prior to marriage, as well as inheritance kept in a separate bank account.
Property division in divorce can feel overwhelming. However, with the help of an experienced and dedicated lawyer, the issue can be navigated with minimal stress.
