Seeking sole physical child custody? What about legal custody?

Many parents who go through divorce believe that it would be best for their children if they only lived with one parent. The circumstances that lead to this belief can differ from family to family. However, it is important for Kentucky parents to understand that child custody deals with legal custody and physical custody.

Specific reasons are needed for child custody modifications

After divorce, many Kentucky parents feel less than happy about certain outcomes. For some, they may feel that the child custody arrangements did not go entirely the way they wanted but feel that they can work with the terms. Others, however, may believe that a custody modification is in order.

Scheduling plays an important part in child custody, school time

Many Kentucky parents may have recently gone through divorce. Though they finally came to conclusions regarding various important matters, like child custody, it may still take them a considerable amount of time to make a solid routine out of their new circumstances. Parents may have fared well during the summer break, but now that kids are going back to school, they may find themselves facing new challenges.

Parents should think about child custody before divorce filing

Someone considering ending his or her marriage has many aspects of life to think about. In particular, Kentucky parents need to think about what type of child custody arrangement could best suit the interests of their kids and the family as a whole. Custody is often one of the most contentious aspects of divorce, and thinking ahead is often wise.

Talking with children may help when it comes to child custody

Feeling protective over their children is the natural instinct of parents. In some cases, they may find themselves becoming overprotective. When Kentucky parents are going through divorce, child custody issues may bring out this protective instinct, but rather than trying to shield their children from what is happening, they may want to talk with their kids.

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.

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.

Child custody, living arrangements difficult decisions to make

Many Kentucky parents may feel that their custody terms are the most important part of the divorce process. Once a child custody agreement has been reached, they may feel at if a major hurdle has been jumped. However, another issue that will likely need addressing relates to the living arrangements of both the parents and the kids post-divorce.

Child custody research suggests co-parenting remains beneficial

Kids are often the highlight of many Kentucky residents' lives. Along with the joy and love that having children can bring, parents typically also worry about their children's well-being and whether the choices the parents make will have negative impacts. This latter concern may make itself particularly prominent when individuals go through divorce and must come to child custody decisions.
