Domestic Family Attorneys

Domestic Family Attorneys in Northern Kentucky

Domestic / Family Law:

Our firm assists families with all aspects of international and domestic adoptions. We handle the legalities of your adoption, so you can concentrate on your new family.

Alimony / Maintenance:

Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. Our firm helps you establish an equitable amount of spousal support. In most states, fault has no effect on divorce issues such as alimony and spousal maintenance. As a result, in most states, issues such as dating, infidelity or even abuse are not factors considered in determining whether to award spousal maintenance.

Unlike child support statutes, there are no percentage guidelines to determine when spousal maintenance or alimony is appropriate or at what level. As a result, trial courts have broad discretion in deciding whether to award maintenance and in determining its duration and amount. It is for this very reason that spousal maintenance often becomes one of the most contested issues in divorce proceedings. The Berger Firm will fight to ensure you receive the support you deserve.

Child Custody and Visitation:

Our divorce attorneys protect your parental rights to raise your children in a fit and supportive home.

Child Support:

A family lawyer can ensure you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy home.

Child Support Modification and Enforcement:

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If the custodial or non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.


Through mediation or litigation, our divorce law firm can help you gain equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile Delinquency and Dependency Proceedings:

We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Montana to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. Our firm can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial Agreements:

Our firm expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests. A prenuptial agreement can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
