The health impacts of divorcing later in life

Kentuckians over 50 are divorcing in greater and greater numbers. In fact, the rate of divorce for this group has doubled since 1990. The phenomenon has been referred to as gray divorce, and it is linked with heightened symptoms of depression and other health problems. A professor of clinical psychiatry and geriatric psychiatrist said she often sees people who've divorced later in life develop anxiety or chronic stress.

What to do when post-divorce issues are upsetting your kids

No two Kentucky families will adapt to life after divorce in exactly the same way. You know your children best, however, and can determine a best course of action to meet their needs as they come to terms with your situation and learn to move on with life. If you ex is being less than cooperative, things can get quite messy.

What to consider before relocating with a child

Kentucky parents and others may have a need to relocate for work or other purposes. However, if the noncustodial parent has visitation or other rights to a child, the custodial parent may need to get permission to relocate. Whether or not permission is granted depends on whether or not the relocation is in the best interests of the child. This is generally determined based on how far the parent is moving and why the move is taking place.

The children of divorced parents often face back-to-school stress

Schoolchildren throughout Kentucky have been returning to classrooms recently. With every academic season comes the nervous excitement of new teachers, new classmates, and new subject matter. For children and parents after divorce, the new school year can also bring uncertainty and confusion. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the uncertainty and stress for both children and parents after a marital split.

How a wedding date choice can affect a later split

When people in Northern Kentucky decide to get married, they are often excited to set and announce a wedding date. Sometimes, they choose a date with personal importance to the couple or select one that is more convenient for the family or cheaper for the wedding venue. On other occasions, people might choose a holiday or romantic occasion for their wedding date. However, some research at the University of Melbourne indicates that couples who choose the latter approach may find their date selections accompanied by an increased likelihood of divorce.

Things to remember when talking to kids about divorce

If you have two or more kids, you've probably noticed that each of them has a unique personality. One might be more outgoing than the other. While they may share common characteristics, such as their love of sports or the types of food they like best, they are individuals and may react to various situations in vastly different ways. If you recently decided to divorce and have not yet told your children, you'll want to keep their personalities in mind when you give them the news.
