Why a family care plan is a high priority for military parents

Like all Kentucky parents, you are responsible for your children's care. Parenthood is often a joyful, rewarding experience but can also be quite challenging at times. If you are a parent who also happens to serve as a member of the U.S. military, you likely already understand just how challenging juggling career and family life can be. Concerning parental obligations, not only must you have a plan for your children's care in your absence, the military also expects you to put that plan into writing.

Shared parenting can help resolve custody concerns

Dealing with child custody is often a major concern for divorced parents in Kentucky. While there are many widely held beliefs about shared parenting and child custody, many assumptions are inaccurate. Shared parenting, in which both of the parents share physical and often legal custody of a child, is an increasingly popular standard for courts working out parenting plans.

Will tax code changes make your divorce more difficult?

Divorce is a difficult process, regardless of how amicable the two parties may be and their resolve to work through divorce issues out of court. If you are facing a divorce in Kentucky, you may have the goal of reducing conflict and moving through the process as quickly as possible, but new changes in tax law could make that more difficult.

Transitioning to post-divorce financial health requires planning

Kentucky couples navigating the sometimes challenging process of getting divorced typically view the signing of the final decree as the end of the line. For most couples, however, there is still work to be done after everyone agrees on the final terms of the marital dissolution. While they may be eager to say goodbye, ex-spouses must continue to work together in order to finish the process.

Divorcing parents can work together on custody issues

For many Kentucky parents considering divorce, figuring out custody issues is a major concern. Almost any divorce means that each parent will have somewhat less time with their children. For close, involved parents, this can be difficult to contemplate. Handling the complications and changes that come along with co-parenting can also be a rewarding, but difficult journey.

Understanding the different types of child custody

Child custody decisions in Kentucky are made by judges when parents cannot agree. The goal of every legal decision on child custody is to do what is in the best interest of the child, and custody does not always mean either sole custody or joint custody. There are several different types of arrangements that can be made, all of them based on the legal definition of the two types of custody: physical and legal.

Taking steps to end the cycle of abuse

Numerous Kentucky residents, men and women, live in abusive marital relationships. Many endure the abuse because they do not feel they deserve better or are afraid to leave. If you have found yourself in such a situation, you can start taking steps to end the cycle of abuse.
