Current Kentucky law requires a married couple to be separated for 60 days before they can file for divorce. The proposed law, House Bill 427, would require couples to be separated for 180 days. In addition, every couple with children would have to have a hearing to prove the marriage is irretrievably broken. If a judge thinks they can work it out, the couple could be ordered to counseling.
In an effort to learn more about MAT, Attorneys Rebecca Hurst and Daniel Hurst attended a seminar called “Legal Advocacy and Suboxone” put on by the 50th Judicial Circuit Model Court which took place in Danville, Kentucky. The seminar was attended by Judges, prosecutors, lawyers, social workers and counselors wanting to learn more about the uses and effects of Suboxone; and better determine how Suboxone treatment will be treated in the legal system.
