How to obtain a shared parenting ruling

Shared parenting is the idea that both parents have an equal or significant say in how their children are raised. Such an arrangement is created when it is in the best interest of the child and when the parents ask for it. One of the main benefits of a shared parenting arrangement is that kids in Kentucky and elsewhere have both parents in their lives on a regular basis.

How will your later-in-life divorce affect your retirement?

Divorce will certainly change many areas of your life, including your finances. The financial impact of the end of your marriage could be significant for Kentucky readers who are nearing retirement age. If you are facing the prospect of a gray divorce, you may find it beneficial to learn how to protect your interests and your plans for your golden years. 

Technologies improve for child support enforcement

For families in Northern Kentucky dealing with the effects of divorce, unpaid or delinquent child support can be a major concern, especially for single parents struggling to cover their children's everyday expenses. Because of the potential for serious impact on a child's health and well-being, child support enforcement is a priority for agencies at the federal and state levels. One of the most widely used and effective mechanisms to ensure child support payments are collected has been the use of wage garnishment and payroll withholding at a parent's place of employment.

Splitting 401(k) funds for a divorce

One of the issues divorcing couples in Kentucky may have to address is the separation of the assets, including retirement money. Couples should take care with how they divide their retirement accounts, such as 401(k) funds, as the different types of retirement accounts are governed by different rules. Dividing the money the wrong way can result in one ex-spouse receiving a bigger portion of the funds than the account holder wanted. It can also result in the parties having to pay high penalties and a large tax bill.

Hague convention provides rules for international adoption
