A strong parenting plan is better for every member of the family

When two parents divorce, it can have a significant emotional impact on the children. Some Kentucky families may find that it is beneficial to work together on a parenting plan that allows the children to have some continuity of lifestyle and stability, even long after the divorce process is final.

Establishing paternity through a DNA test

When Kentucky parents are not married, the alleged father of the child may be asked by the mother to pay child support. Before the court will order the alleged father to pay, however, those involved in the child support dispute will usually be required to undergo DNA testing.

When mediation is not an appropriate option

When a Kentucky couple determines that their marriage cannot be saved, they will need to make a decision about how to go through the divorce process. For some, mediation offers advantages that are appealing as this method is less adversarial than a trial. However, mediation will not work for all couples.

Military personnel may have right to stay hearings

Military personnel living and working in Kentucky should be aware of their rights under the Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act of 2003. The act covers all active duty service members, and the protections it offers remain in force, generally speaking, until between 30 and 90 days after the date active duty terminates with discharge. In some cases the protections may last longer.

Important divorce considerations

Kentucky residents contemplating divorce might like to know more information about the topic. When preparing to dissolve a marriage, first keep in mind that men and women view divorce differently. Women typically want to process their emotions when ending a marriage while men take a quick and efficient approach.
