Brangelina split focuses on child custody

During a divorce, many couples in Kentucky and elsewhere have to consider child custody arrangements in addition to matters such as property division and alimony. Child custody is often a contentious issue. Both parents are likely to want as much time as possible with their children. Equal custody may be an option in ideal circumstances, but it is not always feasible. One or both parents may choose to pursue sole physical and legal custody of the children.

The consequences of not paying child support

Receiving child support is necessary for the well-being of many children in Kentucky. Unfortunately, it can also be a hardship for non-custodial parents who are ordered to make payments. Being unable to afford paying child support can result in serious long-term legal consequences, however, if the paying parent decides not to pay.

Do you need permission to change your child’s last name?

It is common for many mothers in Kentucky and elsewhere to have a different last name from their children after a divorce. Some decide to keep their married surnames, but others revert to their maiden names. If you set aside your married name after your divorce, it might upset you that your children still have their father’s last name. It could be a bad reminder of an unhappy marriage. Consequently, you might consider changing their last name to your maiden name. Is it possible to do this if your spouse is no longer in the picture?

Deciding whether now is the time for a divorce

If you are living in an unhappy marriage, you might wonder if you are ready for a divorce. At Blankenship Massey & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we understand that this can be a difficult decision for many reasons. Like many Kentucky residents considering a divorce, you may be frightened at the prospect of living alone or worried about the impact a divorce will have on your children.

The question now is whether it is time to throw in the towel.
