Divorce:

Kentucky

Grounds for Divorce in Kentucky:

1. If both of the parties by petition or otherwise have stated under oath or affirmation that the marriage is irretrievably broken, or one of the parties has stated it and the other has not denied it, the court, after hearing, will make a finding whether the marriage is irretrievably broken. No decree shall be entered until the parties have lived apart for 60 days. Living apart includes living under the same roof without sexual cohabitation. The court may order a conciliation conference as a part of the hearing.

2. If one of the parties has denied under oath or affirmation that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court will consider all relevant factors, including the circumstances that gave rise to filing the petition and the prospect of reconciliation, and will:

A. Make a finding whether the marriage is irretrievably broken; or

B. Continue the matter for further hearing not fewer than 30 or more than 60 days later, or as soon as the matter may be reached on the court's calendar, and may suggest to the parties that they seek counseling. The court, at the request of either party will, or on its own motion may, order a conciliation conference. At the adjourned hearing the court will make a finding whether the marriage is irretrievably broken.
