Second-parent adoptions and same-sex couples

There is more than one way to become a parent, and as many Kentucky residents have found, the road to parenthood is not always through biology. However, some parental rights might not necessarily be protected under the law if there is no biological bond. One option that is available to parents to ensure those parental rights are protected is through second-parent adoption.

Keeping secrets at work places military marriages at risk

While many find it better to leave their work at the office, successful marriages often include sharing those day-to-day events. In fact, very few can completely turn off their work life when they come home, and the ability to talk about daily stresses and complaints with a loving spouse somehow makes them easier to bear.

Jobs in travel and entertainment have higher divorce rates

Recent studies suggest that Kentucky residents who work in the entertainment, hospitality or travel sectors may be more likely to divorce than those employed in other areas. Figures from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey indicate that bartenders have the highest divorce rates in the United States. The study also reveals that divorce is more common when spouses have fluid schedules or jobs that require extensive travel.

Providing constancy between households after divorce

One of the common problems many Kentucky divorced parents face is how to implement rules that provide consistency for children living in two different households. Parents typically have differing belief systems on which rules should be established in shared custody situations and how strongly they should be enforced. However, if parents can develop a strategy to create normalcy between households, it can go far in helping the children adjust after the divorce.

Sole custody may not be beneficial for mothers

Many northern Kentucky residents may still believe that fathers should be responsible for financially supporting the family while the mothers stay home and raise the children. In part due to these traditional views, divorce courts still overwhelmingly award sole or primary physical custody to mothers.

The financial side of divorce could have an impact on your future

The end of a marriage can be a stressful and challenging experience and may also have a substantial impact on the future of those involved. If you wish to move forward in life on your own, chances are, you might wonder how certain aspects of a divorce might affect you, perhaps especially those concerning finances.
