Father could be charged with felony in possession of a firearm or handgun. Being in the same house where there are guns is considered constructive possession for purposes of the statute. They need to remove guns from the home or the father needs to move.

In Kentucky, there is a privilege to not not have your spouse testify. You must have been married before the incident in question and still be married the time you would be called to testify. Consult your attorney about all the details to spousal privilege. Good luck.

Court documents are generally public record unless the Court orders the documents sealed. Therefore, anyone can walk into the clerk's office to look at or make copies from a file.
