Negotiating child custody conflicts may avoid trip to court

Because children tend to be the most important aspects of Kentucky parents' lives, these parents often find themselves willing to make substantial sacrifices to make sure their children lead good lives. In some cases, parents may need to make a personal sacrifice by continuing to interact with each other after divorce due to child custody arrangements. Though joint custody can often help children have strong relationships with both parents, this arrangement is not always free of conflict.

New Kentucky law says joint child custody is best for kids

Though parents often believe that divorce is the best option when the relationship is no longer happy and healthy, they still worry about the impacts the changes will have on their children. There will be many adjustments that need to be made as the marriage comes to an end, and in particular, concerns often surround child custody proceedings. Parents may wonder what the best approach to custody terms is, but a new Kentucky law may impact how parents view this part of the proceedings.

The benefits of uncontested divorce

You have known for a while that your marriage is ending, but maybe you have put off filing because you are worried about the potential cost to your time, sanity and bank account. You have heard horror stories from other friends and associates in Kentucky about their expensive, lengthy divorce disputes. However, it may encourage you to learn that there are other ways to get a divorce than going to court. These are known as uncontested, or amicable, divorce options.

Property division may require splitting IRA funds

As Kentucky workers spend their years stashing money away for retirement, they may daydream about what they will do with those funds. Though these dreams may become a reality for many people, others may find themselves losing a portion of their IRA funds during divorce. Property division proceedings could easily dictate that a soon-to-be ex-spouse is entitled to at least some of that money.

Child support concerns may stem from parental disability

When a Kentucky resident becomes a custodial parent, the situation can feel rewarding but also intimidating. Raising children on one's own can present a considerable amount of hardships, especially on finances. As a result, courts often require a non-custodial parent to pay child support in efforts to help a custodial parent make ends meet.

Child custody: Many children living with single parents

Many children become apprehensive when their parents announce a divorce. Even though many Kentucky kids likely have friends whose own parents are divorced, it can still feel worrisome to consider such a major change, especially if they fear that they will not see both of their parents often. Child custody arrangements and other factors do have many children living with unmarried and single parents.
