Kentucky Family Laws
Family law covers a very broad range of legal disciplines, including marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption, and other matters. Abortion laws are also included in FindLaw's family law section, since they impact reproductive health clinics, although family law attorneys seldom get involved in abortion cases. Kentucky statutes also cover the many aspects of marriage and divorce, such as the types of marriage that are prohibited, the legal requirements for divorce, and how marital property is divide in a divorce. Some criminal matters also involve family law, such as when a victim of domestic abuse seeks a protective order and perhaps a modification of child custody.
