Deciding between co-parenting and parallel parenting

Parents in Kentucky may have questions about how to raise their children after a divorce. Co-parenting and parallel parenting are both valid child-rearing structures that exes can choose to follow. However, deciding which is best for the individual situation requires weighing some pros and cons.

The pros and cons of birdnesting

Parents in Kentucky and elsewhere generally want what is best for their children after a divorce. One way to do this is to allow a child to remain in the same home in which he or she lived prior to the divorce. In a process called nesting, the child remains in the family home while the parents rotate between that residence and an outside dwelling.

Will new Kentucky child custody laws affect child support?

If you are preparing for divorce in Kentucky, you'll want to know about a new law the state passed this year. Other states have recently adopted similar laws, and not everyone is happy about it. In fact, some parent advocates say that the new shared-custody rules could wind up having negative consequences for those seeking child support. Perhaps you are one of many parents who gave up a career to stay home full time with your children.

Reactions children may have when their parents get divorced

When you made the decision to divorce, you likely had a few concerns regarding how that decision would affect your children. You may relate to many Kentucky parents who were confident in their personal choice to leave their marriages but were worried about the possible negative consequences their situations might have in their children's lives.  

What fathers can do to get visitation, manage child support

Some unmarried Kentucky fathers might struggle to get custody or visitation rights. Since the vast majority of custodial parents are mothers, fathers may also have trouble keeping up child support payments. However, these dads should still try to pay something toward support. They can always go to court and ask for a modification. In certain cases, such as after a job loss, a modification will be easier to obtain.

Common but avoidable financial errors in divorce

When people in Kentucky get a divorce, the process might be more difficult if they make common financial mistakes. For example, some people may go out and buy an expensive item during or after the divorce. This might feel better in the short term, but they will still have to pay the bill.
