Comprehensive Family Law Services

The combination of legal issues and complex family dynamics can lead to great anxiety, anger and frustration. Whether it is filing for divorce, updating a parenting plan or drafting a prenuptial agreement, a good family law lawyer can smooth over some of the difficult wrinkles and help move the process along in a civil manner.

We are Josh Berkley and Amy Oliver, founding attorneys of Berkley Oliver PLLC, where we handle a great variety of family law matters. We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to clients' needs and goals during the initial consultation. We then tailor our strategies to best address the needs and preferences of our clients. We do this by thoroughly preparing each case as if it is going to trial, knowing that this preparation also helps with out-of-court negotiations.

If the dispute can be managed in negotiation or mediation, we will often take this approach because it is faster and less expensive than court. This approach can also set the tone for families to move forward in a positive and healthy manner. However, Amy Oliver has extensive experience working the courts under the most challenging conditions and is comfortable presenting her case before a judge.

We Handle All Areas Of Family Law

The family law attorneys at Berkley Oliver PLLC are prepared to help clients in all family law matters, including:

  • Divorce: Either uncontested or contested, we work tirelessly to protect all parental and personal rights.
  • Child custody and visitation: This is often a contentious issue, but experts and the courts generally agree that joint custody is in the best interests of the family.
  • Prenuptial agreements: More common today for couples with two incomes, these can provide a solid financial foundation to begin a new marriage.
  • Property division: Every family's needs and property are different, but we always work toward fair and equitable settlements.
  • Annulments: Rather than ending a marriage, these invalidate the original marriage agreement.
  • Child support: Kentucky has a formula for this based on income, number of children and the needs of the family.
  • Enforcement of final decrees: Ideally, both parties will honor an agreement determined by the court or through negotiation, but sometimes this is not the case.
  • Adoption: We enjoy bringing families together, whether it is through an agency or a family member.
