Where can I find more information about custody in Kentucky?


Legal Aid Network of Kentucky provides general information about custody issues in Kentucky, including what happens if both parents agree on parenting time, information on moving with a child, and more.

The Kentucky Bar Foundation has prepared a Pro Se Child Custody/ Parenting Time Instruction Packet and Forms to help parents file for custody on their own and represent themselves in court. It’s important to note that parents who represent themselves in court will be held to the same standards that lawyers are, and will have to follow the same rules. If you have any questions or concerns about representing yourself, please contact a lawyer before filing.
