What happens during Divorce in Kenton County?

If you reside in Kenton County, Kentucky and are filing or have filed for divorce, the process is similar to other counties in Kentucky.  There is are two family judges in Kenton Count, current Judge Lisa O. Bushelman and Judge Christopher Mehling.

My first piece of advice is that every litigant should immediately exercise their right to counsel and should seek out an experienced domestic relations/family law attorney who practices in the local courts.  If you live in Covington, Ft. Wright, Ft. Mitchell, Independence, Ludlow, Bromley, Crescent Springs, Erlanger, Elsmere, or anywhere else in Kenton County your divorce will typically be heard by the Kenton Circuit Family Court in Covington, Kentucky.

The Kenton Family Court is located at 230 Madison Avenue, Covington, Kentucky.  Judge Mehling, 2nd Division, is located in Courtroom 5A and Judge Bushelman, 5th Division, is located in Courtroom 7B.  Court is sometimes held in courtroom 1B, typically for juvenile cases.

You should attempt to obtain legal counsel as soon in this process as possible.  An attorney can explain your rights and your options. A litigant may choose to enter an agreement at any time or may proceed to mediation and litigation.  An attorney can determine the likelihood of obtaining a more favorable result by proceeding to court or by coming to an agreement and help negotiate the best deal possible.
