The division of property is governed by Kentucky law KRS 403.190. This statute explains how property is to be divided between spouses in a divorce, and lays out which factors should be considered “relevant” for property division. It is noted that fault in the divorce or “marital misconduct” should NOT be considered in the process of dividing property.
This statute also discusses the meaning of “marital property,” which is defined as all of the property acquired during the course of the marriage with a few exceptions. Property acquired during the marriage is assumed to be marital property unless proven otherwise.
After reviewing their particular situations, Attorney Winner provides clients with sound counsel on what "just proportions" may look like in their unique cases.
