Why Choose Us?

Because you don't like paying more for the same product.

You can pay other online divorce services up to $299 to receive the same completed divorce papers that you would receive from ReliableDivorce.com for just $99.  Plus, our $99 price includes the option to schedule a phone conference with the legal professional assigned to your case (your Case Manager) to walk you through each step of the process and answer any questions you may have.

Because you want accurate, up to date divorce papers with a proven track record of acceptance by the court.

Because you want a single, upfront price and not be hit with hidden fees later down the road.

Many other services start hitting you up for additional fees shortly after you sign up (and after already paying their initial fee).  These additional fees often include "storage fees" to maintain your information or monthly charges just so you may continue to access your own documents. However, we will never ask you to pay any additional fees. With ReliableDivorce.com, you will always have unlimited access to your account so that, at any time, you may make changes to your information and generate new documents regardless of how long ago you signed up for our service.

Getting an Online Divorce in Kentucky

Our online divorce service is designed for spouses who want a simple, cheap and fast divorce in Kentucky. The key factor to determine whether an online divorce will work for your situation is that both spouses can agree to the terms of the divorce, including the division of property, division of debts and any child-related issues, if applicable.

 

ReliableDivorce.com makes the online divorce process easy and affordable for virtually every budget. Based on your answers to our questionnaire, we determine all the necessary documents you will need and the documents are prepared as required for the court’s approval.  We provide you step-by-step written instructions beginning with how to file your divorce papers and all the way through how to finalize your divorce.  

 

We have spent more than 15 years helping people file for and complete their divorce. Unlike many other online divorce services, our services don’t end once you file your initial divorce papers. We also want to make sure you are easily able to finalize your divorce as quickly as Kentucky law allows.  We understand that even with step-by-step instructions to guide you through the divorce process, it can still be overwhelming. That’s why our service continues even after you have your completed divorce papers in hand. Included with our service is the option to schedule a phone consultation with your case manager who can answer any questions you may have or even walk you through each step of the process if necessary. 

 

The bottom line is that if you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, then an online divorce is the fastest, easiest and least expensive option to dissolve your marriage. Whether you have children, own a home or own other property, as long as you and your spouse can reach an agreement on all such issues, then you are eligible to use our online divorce services to file your divorce in Kentucky.

Uncontested vs. Contested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses have reached an agreement on all the major issues, such as property division, division of debt, child custody, child support, and spouse support.

 

A contested divorce in one in which the spouses cannot reach an agreement on the major issues and, as a result, the court will have to decide the final outcome on the disputed issues.

 

In either type of divorce, the process starts by one spouse filing for divorce.

 

Benefits to an Uncontested Divorce

 

  • Save Money. Spouses save a significant amount of money in an uncontested divorce vs. a contested divorce. Instead of paying the high attorney’s fees that accompany a contested divorce, that money stays in the parties’ pockets.

  • Save Time. Because the spouses have already reached an agreement on the important issues, the paperwork is stream-lined and the parties don’t have to spend time attending multiple court hearings and formal negations that can take many months or even years to complete.

  • Save Mental Health. Fighting your divorce out in court adds additional stress to an already difficult situation. An uncontested divorce results in a much easier and less stressful legal process.

 

We created our Kentucky online divorce service to maximize these benefits. ReliableDivorce.com provides the lowest price online divorce service in the market with the fastest results. You receive your divorce papers immediately after completing our online questionnaire so you can file your divorce today or any other day you choose.

Grounds for Divorce

Kentucky is a true no-fault divorce state since a spouse is not required or even permitted to cite the wrongdoing of the other spouse as grounds for a divorce.

This means that neither spouse is required to prove the other spouse is at fault for causing the divorce.

Instead, the no-fault ground available for a divorce in Kentucky is that the marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation.  [Kentucky Revised Statute §§403.025, 403.170].

How to File for Divorce Without a Lawyer

In Kentucky, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state of Kentucky for a minimum of six months prior to filing. Since only one spouse needs to meet this residency requirement, you may file for divorce in Kentucky even if your spouse resides in another state.

[Kentucky Revised Statute §403.140].

In Kentucky, you may file in the county where either spouse currently resides.  Kentucky does not set a minimum in-county residency requirement before a party may file in that particular county.

Detailed court-filing instructions are included with your completed divorce papers, so that you know how the process works.

Our online divorce service makes it easy to file for divorce without a lawyer.  There is no requirement that you have a lawyer to file for divorce in Kentucky.  In fact, in many Kentucky counties, more than half of all divorces filed are completed without the involvement of a lawyer. Once you sign up to use our online divorce service, you simply fill out our online questionnaire to begin your divorce paperwork.  It can either be filled out on your own or with your spouse's help.   We provide you with all the paperwork needed to file and complete your divorce along with detailed instructions for every step of the process.

The first step of the process is to ensure you meet the state's residency requirements to file for divorce in Kentucky.

Child Support

Child support in Kentucky is set based on the state-mandated guidelines.  [Kentucky Revised Statute §403.212]. Using a Kentucky child support calculator is best for determining the amount of child support to be paid. The child support calculator uses the child support guidelines prescribed by Kentucky law.  Our online divorce service provides you the child support calculator during your questionnaire. 

Child support obligation in Kentucky generally ends when the child turns 18 years old. However, if the child turns 18 while still attending high school, then child support will continue until age 19. [Kentucky Revised Statute §403.213]. The most common way to pay child support is to have the amount deducted directly from the payor's wages.

Child Custody and Visitation in Kentucky

Legal Custody in Kentucky

There are two types of legal custody in Kentucky: Joint Custody and Sole Custody. This determines how decisions are made regarding the raising of the child.

Legal custody is determined based exclusively on what is in the child's best interest.

[Kentucky Revised Statute §403.270].

Joint Custody is where both parents have the right to participate in making the major decisions affecting the child. 

Sole Custody is where only one parent has the right to make decisions affecting the child.

Kentucky law presumes joint custody is appropriate unless proven otherwise. [Kentucky Revised Statute §403.315].

Physical Custody in Kentucky

Physical custody says who the children will primarily reside with and the other parent will have visitation as discussed below. 

In Kentucky, the non-custodial parent has the same visitation rights regardless of whether sole custody or joint custody is ordered in the divorce decree.

Visitation

Under Kentucky law, visitation is any schedule agreed upon by both parents and can change any time both parents are in agreement. Basically, the parents are in control of visitation provided they both agree to it. It is only if the parents cannot agree that the state’s standard visitation schedule applies. Though many parents find it easier to just go by the standard visitation schedule provided under Kentucky law. This will be explained in more detail in your divorce papers.

Personal Computer

Our Kentucky divorce forms are guaranteed to be approved by the court.  Our software determines what forms are needed and how to correctly complete the forms based on the answers you provide when completing our online questionnaire.  Our software is updated anytime there is a change in the Kentucky divorce laws.  Our service makes getting an online divorce as seamless as possible and at a price that meets every budget. 

Kentucky Divorce - FAQ

How long will my divorce take?

Short Answer:  61-90 days.

Detailed Answer:  Kentucky has a mandatory 60-day waiting period that begins when the initial petition is filed.  This means the court cannot finalize any dissolution until after this 60-day waiting period has expired.  However, the actual time it takes will largely depend on how quickly you and your spouse complete and file all the necessary paperwork and the judge's schedule.  Assuming there are no major hurdles, it is reasonable to expect your divorce to be finalized 61-90 days after filing the initial papers.

 

What documents are needed to file for divorce in Kentucky?

Short Answer:  1) Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, 2) Case Data Information Sheet and 3) Certificate of Divorce or Annulment.

Detailed Answer:   Additional documents are needed if spouses have minor children together.  Our online divorce service will provide you all of the forms needed for the entire divorce process along with detailed instructions for every step.  If you have any questions along the way, you may also schedule a call with one of our legal professionals who will walk you through the process.

How soon can I get remarried after my divorce is final?

Short Answer:  Immediately.

 

Detailed Answer:  Kentucky does not have a mandatory waiting period between finalizing a divorce and when a party may marry another person. 

Can I file for divorce in Kentucky if my spouse lives in another state?

Short Answer:  Yes.

Detailed Answer:  If your spouse lives outside of Kentucky, then as long as you satisfy the state's residency requirement, you may file in Kentucky.  

How long do I need to live in Kentucky before I can file for divorce in the state?

Short Answer:  Usually six (6) months.

Detailed Answer:  Kentucky Residency Requirement:  At least one spouse must be a resident of Kentucky for six (6) months prior to filing for divorce.  If you have lived in the state for less than six months, but your spouse has lived in Kentucky for six (6) months, then you may still file for divorce since Kentucky's residency requirement would be met based on your spouse's residency.
