Title: Anybody in Kentucky???
Post by: MixedBag on Sep 26, 2013, 03:13:14 PM
Fellow-on-line friend got told he can't file for a divorce pro se because there is a child involved in Kentucky.


Of course -- makes no sense to me.


Mom doesn't have to have an attorney.


Mom ran off with child to NY....and yep, dad hasn't see child.


Ideas for information and help?

This is from a county web site in Kentucky. I was not allowed to post links. Try legal aid site -pro-bono in KY


A self-help packet of forms necessary to file for a divorce is available in the Family Court Division and at the driver’s licenses branches for $10. Packets are available for marriages with or without children.

The filing fee for divorce actions is $148 for parties who are not represented by attorneys and $153 for divorces filed by attorneys on behalf of the parties. If you are representing yourself in your divorce action or if are represented by Legal Aid or a pro bono attorney and believe that you qualify as indigent, you may file a motion to proceed “in forma pauperis,” which allows the filing fee to be waived. Each court makes its own determination of whether a party is indigent. The court generally considers factors such as income, expenses, number of people you support and whether you own an automobile or any property.

Hope this helps
