Joint parenting schedules benefit children

Divorcing couples in Kentucky should consider developing a joint parenting schedule. These plans can help to reduce the disruptions to a child's schedule that commonly occur after a divorce. Parents should aim to set aside their own egos and put the children's needs first.

Young couples may wish to consider prenups

For many people in Kentucky, prenuptial agreements seem like a matter for celebrities or ultra-wealthy entrepreneurs. They may not seem relevant to people of average income and wealth, especially when they are just starting out in life. Indeed, many people think of young marriages as those that are least likely to need prenuptial agreements given that neither party has had significant time to accrue serious assets, launch businesses or have existing children from prior relationships. However, some experts advise that students who marry while completing college, university or graduate school may benefit from considering a prenup.

Many Kentucky spouses ages 55 and up are filing for divorce

The baby boomer generation is historically known for many things, including avid promotion of love, protest against war and its great passion for rock and roll. If you were born between 1946 and 1964, you're part of the baby boomer generation. You may be able to relate to peers who got married and raised their families in the post-World War II era.

Making a high-asset divorce easier

Some Kentucky couples who are ending their marriage will go through what is known as a high-asset divorce. These can be more complex than other divorce cases because of the different types of property involved and the work it takes to calculate the value of the marital estate. There are several ways to make going through the process easier.

Divorce risk may be higher for men marrying more attractive women

It's not all that unusual for a man seeking a significant other in Kentucky to opt for someone more physically attractive. In fact, an analysis of online dating site data shows both men and women have a tendency to pursue potential partners up to 25 percent more attractive than themselves. However, there's research suggesting that men who tie the knot with significantly more attractive women have a higher divorce risk.

Amending custody orders not always easy, but possible

Custody after divorce is often a contentious issue for parents in Kentucky and throughout America. In many cases, custody decisions are based on factors like income stability and safe living conditions. It's important to note, however, that custody decisions may change as a child ages or when certain criteria are met.
