What does “Living Apart” mean?

Divorce in Kentucky

The law in Kentucky requires that you “live apart” for a period of time. See our blog on Divorce Without Waiting for more details.


“Living Apart”

The statute defines “Living Apart” as living under the same roof without sexual cohabitation. Some couples cannot afford two homes, cable bills, utilities, etc. Therefore, it is permissible to live under the same roof but “living apart” if you are not having sex (intercourse) with your spouse.

Finding a Good Lawyer

One good way to find a lawyer is to check out their online recommendations, ask friends, acquaintances, or other lawyers and attorneys for referrals and then interview the candidates.
