Should you avoid a do-it-yourself divorce?

Numerous sources online and in person will tell you that it’s possible to do your own divorce, from writing out the terms to filing the paperwork. They may say that the entire process is simplified in this way, including saving you time and costing a lot less. Is it possible for you and other Kentucky residents to get a DIY divorce? Yes, but you may first want to consider the reasons why it may be more in your favor to consult a family law attorney.

Are couples with disabled children at a greater risk of divorce?

Having a disabled child can be a blessing to a family, but may also present unique challenges that some Kentucky residents feel they are not up to. In an ideal situation, both parents, as well as extended family members, would all help to care for a disabled child and support each other during the trying times. This is sadly not always the case, however. If you have a disabled child, you are probably well aware that while you would never trade the child you love for another, the challenges you face can sometimes strain a relationship.

Can I be held responsible for my ex’s debt?

Most couples accrue at least some debt during their marriage. If you are divorced, what you owed from credit cards, auto loans, your home mortgage and other debts was most likely divided by the court, since Kentucky is an equitable distribution state. You might have been told you had to repay a portion of the marital debt while your ex-spouse was responsible for the rest.

Being friends with your ex – part 2

Last week’s post touched upon the subject of getting along with your ex-spouse, particularly when it comes to co-parenting the children. Like many divorced parents in Kentucky, you might not necessarily be on friendly terms with your ex. At Blankenship Massey & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we understand that being civil to each other can make all the difference where the children are concerned.
