Providing for a special needs child in a divorce

Raising a child is challenging under the best of circumstances, and those challenges only increase if you have a child with special needs. Even when both parents do their best to love and support that child, it could put an incredible amount of strain on the marital relationship.

Why financial planning for protection in divorce is important

Despite the fact that four out of 10 marriages end in divorce, few people in Kentucky and elsewhere have financial plans in place to protect themselves in the event that their marriages might end. While people may feel strange about thinking about these matters in case they get divorced, doing so may be a smart choice.

Identifying and responding to parental alienation

Parental alienation involves one parent trying to turn a child against the other, and it may be a serious concern for some parents in northern Kentucky after a divorce. It may begin gradually, such as with a parent's request to postpone a visitation because the child is sick or has homework to do. Later, the child might have a behavioral change and become argumentative.

Holidays can be a challenge during divorce

The annual winter holiday season can be a particularly difficult time for people going through a divorce in Kentucky and across the nation. The season is associated with family activities and long-term memories, and for divorcing couples with children, making new memories for the kids can be a challenge. Dealing positively and productively with the holidays while going through a divorce can be particularly important to promoting stability and security for children facing the end of their parents' marriage.

How to handle child custody before the divorce

When people with children get a divorce in Kentucky, there is an interim period after they agree to divorce but before the divorce is final, when their custodial rights are equal. This means that, for example, either parent could take the child out of state.
