Avoid rocky roads when co-parenting as well as hiking this summer

What's your favorite part of summer? Like many Kentucky parents, spending more time with your kids, who are likely on vacation from school, may be at the top of your list. If this summer is unique for your family because it's the first one since your divorce, you may be concerned as to whether you and your ex will be able to amicably navigate the summer vacation schedule without running into custody, visitation or support problems.

What happens to debt during a divorce?

Some people refer to divorce as "splitting up." This may be an accurate way to describe the process that often includes a tremendous amount of time and effort directed at splitting things between spouses. You will split your property, your time with your children and even your debts.

Dealing with a late-in-life divorce

Many Kentuckians assume that once a couple has been married for 20 years or more, it is unlikely that they will divorce. While it is true that chance of divorce can decline over time, more and more couples are deciding to separate in their senior years.

How to plan for children's college educations after divorce

How to pay for a child's college education may be a worry for many parents in Kentucky, but those worries might grow if the parents divorce. An Ameritrade study found that although around 40 percent of marriages end in divorce, about two-thirds of couple lack a financial plan in case of divorce or the death of one of them.

The process of establishing paternity

The issue of establishing paternity is a common one. Many birth parents in Kentucky and across the country struggle with the issue of establishing paternity, including questions about if they should do it and how establishing paternity can be accomplished. In a best-case scenario, a father will voluntarily acknowledge his children. In other situations, it will take court intervention to establish paternity.

Why many entrepreneurs find themselves facing divorce

Being an entrepreneur is not likely a profession that most Kentucky residents would associate with high divorce rates. This may be due in part to the fact that there are no hard and fast statistics outlining divorce rates for entrepreneurs. However, there are certain characteristics inherent to most entrepreneurs and the circumstances they face that may account for higher divorce rates.

How to decide whether to share legal custody after a divorce

Joint legal custody is one option for parents in Kentucky who get a divorce. Parents who have legal custody have the right to decide about issues such as their child's religion, health care and schooling. It is a common arrangement for divorced parents to share legal custody while only one has physical custody and the other has visitation rights.
