No no no, stay away from T.P. I used her once and I feel all she did was run my bill up with useless motions. She gets pissed off if you don't agree with her. She kept pushing me to go after everything. All I wanted was what was mine before I was married. She likes to play dirty. If that's what you want then use her but be warned she will run your bill up with useless motions. I feel her tactics are questionable. I used John Reed my second time and I was very pleased with him and the overall outcome. He is very pleasant to deal with. He wants and goes for what you want. Good Luck!

John reed is a hot head but is good, I like Tiffany too it's just unless u are a woman u r not going to win here just accept it! Either one will get u the most that they can just sux for the kids not being involved with their fathers as much as they should!

don't expect much other than a large bill from a Paducah Lawyer, if you want to win a case that requires work, do the work yourself and let the lawyer file the paper work...(find someone in your situation who has won)if the lawyer knows the judge or they both are members of the country club or the paducah economic development club or whatever they call it you might have a shot

you have to document what she does wrong...be perfect yourself...and have so much evidence that the judge would look like an idiot to let the other win...it might take time to build your case...the lawyer will take your money today even if you can't win today...never talk to social services...they lie and manipulate

A few suggestions, Gary Haverstock in Murray (if you have the funds), been on the opposite end of Rick Johnson (kinda mean), Charlie Bryan in Benton, document everything! No matter how small or irrelevant it may seem. Even your daily comings and goings. But a notebook, ink pen, and EVERY night before you go to bed, write in your journal. Date and times are great. Be a perfect law abiding citizen. Keep your mouth shut to everyone. Do not talk about your situation to anyone. Write it all down! Any financial problems you have, start getting them taken care of, any outstanding bills....make phone calls and set up payment plans if you can't pay them in full, of you can afford it....hire someone to come thoroughly clean your house....from ceiling to floor and all in between, and WHATEVER you do, DO NOT speak ill of your ex.....it will come back to you in the end.....I know the last one may be hard but, trust me.....I have been the child and the parent, I will never forget how my mother spoke ill of my father, I chose to do things differently and have not spoken ill of my ex, I can see a huge difference in my children. Make sure when you have your children, you are not a push over, no matter how many times they may say they do not like you, children are creatures of habit, create a very structured environment for them, explain the rules and for those rules have consequences and no matter what stick to your guns. Although it may be hard, you need to communicate to your ex that if the children are being punished at their home, you will uphold that punishment should it run into your time and vise versa (example: Surie fails a class for the nine weeks, ex grounds her from her cell phone until improvement is shown, you should uphold that desicions, grounded at your home as well). The children should be made aware of as much as needed and nothing more, they are children, do not make them grow up any faster. And finally, NO MATTER how hard it will be, DO NOT under any circumstances drill your children about what goes on at the exes house! Let your children come to you, listen, and reassure them that although their choices (ex) may not suit everyone, you understand his/her frustrations, you will always be a sounding board, that they can always come to you, do not make suggestions, ask how he/she thinks that it should be handled and guide them in the right direction. Good luck! Divorce and custody battles are never easy.

once the children stay at a certain home for a certain period of time (find out) it becomes legally difficult to change custody without major issues.

Yes, it will all depend on your past history with your child and what kind of person you are.

If you had a legal shield membership it would be cheaper for you to fight this. You can get huge discounts with member benefits thirty bucks a month. I can sign you up. You can cancel at any time. btw I used dennis null in mayfield recently. Five hundred dollars vs. Two thousand bacause of my membership. Write back if interested.

Besides T Poindexter and J. Reed, what other divorce/custody lawyers are in Paducah? I doubt I could afford either one of them. Are there any other lawyers that are very good AND are a little more reasonable in terms of $$$? Not sure yet if it will get really ugly between us, so I guess $$$ will depend on what happens. If someone could recommend a couple other lawyers besides reed and Poindexter, I would be very appreciative

I have visited with both Reed and Poindexter and 100% believe they are very good attorneys. But I have several friends in the past that simply couldn't afford them, I wish I could!! But I can't. I agree with Loneoak 46 in that I also need a more reasonalbe atty do to my financial means (my husband cleaned out the savings)! I have read through the phone book and online and see about a dozen other divorce atty's in the area. I don't want to make the wrong choice because I know my husband's famaily will make sure he has a great atty. Are there any attys that will take a case in this kind of sitation where my husband made all the money, stole what savings I had, hired a high profile lawyer and I cannot afford one that high. PLEASE HELP ME!

Jennifer peeler is good, give her a call to set up a time to meet her. She will not charge for the first visit. Tell her what has and is happening and you will have an opportunity to discuss fees. She's a straight shooter and will fight- she's good.
