Quick Guide to Kentucky Divorce Forms
A petitioner is limited on the number of Kentucky divorce forms they can fill out. The state only provides several KY divorce forms, and these documents are located under the official website of the Kentucky Court of Justice. All of the documents open to the public are grouped together, but all of the Kentucky divorce forms are located under Civil Forms.
If you are thinking about divorce in KY, you should contact a family law attorney immediately. Some of the forms open to the public still need assistance by a lawyer, and other forms must be filled out solely by your attorney. When thinking about divorce, know that attorneys’ costs are expensive and that you should only initiate the divorce when you are ready.
