Ex-Louisville football coach avoids testifying in divorce

Because Kentucky is a no-fault divorce state, it is not necessary that either spouse prove the other did something specific to cause the relationship to sour. However, it can still come up as an issue, perhaps when the spouses are fighting over child custody and one spouse wants to paint the other as an unfit parent.

How is child custody determined in Kentucky?

Every state has its own family law systems, and the differences between how a particular state and its neighbors deal with matters of divorce and child custody can be surprisingly significant. For example, family court judges in Kentucky are more likely to award split child custody, in which the parents each have physical custody about half the time. Meanwhile, in Ohio and Indiana, the courts are more likely to award sole custody to one parent and reserve visitation time for the other.

Easing the stress and complication of divorce for children

When Kentucky couples file for divorce, it is likely that they have already dealt with month or years of stress, fighting and difficulty. It is normal for this stress to spill over into the divorce process itself, resulting in protracted litigation. This complication is not only experienced by the parents but also by the children, who will be greatly impacted by the end of the marriage. 

Divorce + social media = divorce selfies

All of us who are active on social media have friends who seem to believe that nothing they experience, from a vacation to a breakfast, really happened unless they post a picture of it online. The “selfie” is especially popular with these folks, who apparently think that their friends are demanding daily self-portraits.
