Knowledgeable Counsel for Divorce and Other Domestic Issues

Divorce actions, child custody disputes, and other family law issues take a serious toll on you and the people closest to you. As a parent, you must protect your legal rights while focusing on the needs of your children. Additional concerns, such as the division of marital property, can make your divorce even more difficult. That’s why it is so important to be represented by a qualified domestic relations attorney who can address your problems effectively and help you make a fresh start. At the Oakes Law Firm in Paducah, we deliver skillful representation to clients in Kentucky and Tennessee. Attorney Andrew K AsBridge is a dedicated and strategic family law attorney who provides individualized counsel to clients to resolve their needs to move forward.

Established Firm Focuses on Communication to Achieve Agreeable Divorces

Ending a marriage is an emotional process. Even if both spouses want to move in a different direction, the decision to divorce demands careful consideration. In many cases, clients can reduce time, cost, and stress by reaching an agreement on critical issues such as child custody and property division. Even if the disagreements are complex, our firm understands how to safeguard the interests of our clients while avoiding emotional disputes that can lengthen the marriage dissolution process.
If you are considering filing for divorce or have been served with papers by your spouse, an adept family law attorney can provide practical guidance in several ways:

  • Paperwork — The process of filing for divorce requires legal documents to be correctly prepared and filed. Overlooking or misfiling any form can have a negative impact on your effort to achieve a fair resolution. As an experienced divorce litigator, attorney Andrew K AsBridge will ensure that you satisfy each legal requirement in a timely fashion.
  • Dispute resolution — When spouses attempt to resolve divorce-related issues by themselves, a poorly chosen request or response can offend the other party and derail progress. Our firm has an extensive background in dispute resolution and can deliver a finely crafted message on your behalf, maximizing your chance of success.
  • Financial arrangements — The division of property and assets can make even the most amicable divorce contentious. This is especially true when there are differences in work experience and earning capacity between spouses. We can assist with the financial planning process, ensuring that you have adequate support to move on with your life.

It is essential to be represented by a skilled professional who puts your interests and those of your children first with so much at stake.

Comprehensive Assistance for Child Custody and Support Matters

When parents split up, divorce proceedings determine physical custody and legal custody. In some cases, the parents divide up responsibilities in a joint custody arrangement. Ultimately, courts will evaluate the relevant circumstances to determine what is in the child's best interests. Still, both parents are legally responsible for the financial support of the children they share. The specific formula for child support contributions varies based on the adjusted income of each parent. Whether you need assistance with child custody or support, we can help you fight for a resolution that meets the specific needs of you and your child.
