Guiding you to a Better Future
Divorce can be an arduous and unpleasant process. You need effective advocacy during a time of such potential stress and uncertainty.
The legal team at McBrayer provides high-quality, value-based representation for individuals who encounter divorce. As counselors and advocates, we consistently strive to achieve positive results in a timely and cost-effective manner, all while protecting the rights and interests of each client. We want to help you make a successful transition to life after divorce.
Child Custody, Child Support and Spousal Maintenance
When you choose our law firm to represent you, we carefully review all aspects of your case, including your and your family's personal and financial situations. We will also discuss your goals and how you see your life developing in the upcoming years. We will then develop a strategy to achieve your goals on issues such as child custody, visitation, time sharing, child support, spousal maintenance and property division.
Divorces Involving Professionals, Business Owners and High-Asset Couples
Our lawyers are experienced in divorces involving complex property division issues, including valuation and ownership of businesses and professional practices, as well as tracing claims for non-marital property. Whenever advisable, we seek to minimize costs and maximize results for our clients through proactive negotiation techniques, including mediation. This approach not only helps keep legal costs reasonable, but reduces the emotional stress that can accompany the divorce process. In the event litigation is necessary, however, our Kentucky family law team has extensive trial experience, and is immensely qualified to represent you effectively at trial.

Who We Serve
McBrayer provides sophisticated legal representation for individuals in need of legal services related to any and all domestic relations and family law issues. Our family law attorneys represent individuals in all family court matters, including but not limited to divorce, child custody, timesharing, child support, maintenance/alimony, division of property, post-decree modifications, and prenuptial agreements. In addition, McBrayer offers consultations to our clients, at which our divorce lawyers will explain the divorce process and answer any questions our client may have, particularly in regard to property division, marital and non-marital debt, and other relevant issues.
McBrayer routinely handles domestic relations and family law matters ranging from minor issues to the most complex cases. We provide client-oriented, value-added services. Our family law clients typically include business owners, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and other professionals seeking high-quality representation. We respect our client's privacy, and take care to utilize the utmost discretion to address and resolve family law matters.
McBrayer family law attorneys provide experienced, skilled guidance to our clients. We understand both the emotional challenges associated with family law and domestic relations issues as well as the potential effects on a client's financial situation. We offer hands-on, tailored representation to responsively address all of our individual client's needs. Our family law attorneys welcome our client's input relative to whether our client desires an out-of-court resolution or trial.
McBrayer's family law attorneys are experienced negotiators. Often, our family law attorneys obtain a settlement agreement or other resolution which meets and exceeds our client's expectations. When an out-of-court resolution is not realistic or viable, however, our family law attorneys have substantial experience in the courtroom, and are zealous advocates for our clients at trial.
