Family Law in Kentucky

Full-service family law firm in Frankfort

Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive Kentucky attorney by your side when facing important family issues. The lawyers at Johnson Bearse, LLP zealously advocate for your rights and provide protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Divorce
  • Domestic violence
  • Juvenile dependency, neglect and abuse
  • Mediation
  • Paternity
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements


Adopting a child brings happiness to families — but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn the joyous occasion into a nightmare.  We assist with the complex legal process of adoptions so you can feel secure about your child’s wellbeing.


Divorce should not lead to financial crises. We will help you obtain the spousal support you deserve, so you can continue to live as you did during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation

Our divorce attorneys advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support

Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile dependency, neglect and abuse

When Kentucky authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape.  We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Kentucky to protect your parental rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. Our skilled negotiators can help you obtain the best possible settlement in your family law matter.


We can help guide you through the paternity process and inform you of your rights following a paternity judgment.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. We expect the unexpected and draft agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.
