Could the collaborative divorce method work for your case?

When you first tied the knot, you may have believed that your marriage would stand the test of time and you would remain married for the rest of your life.

Whatever the case, you now must determine how to approach your legal proceedings.

Finances are a major issue in a Kentucky divorce

Ending a marriage is an emotional time for most Kentucky couples. That may contribute to the fact that many are surprised when the sum total of their marriages comes down to dividing their property (and custody issues if there are children involved).

When it became clear that divorce was on the horizon, each of them may have begun to wonder what would happen to those plans.

What do I get to keep in my Kentucky divorce?

Divorce is a complex process, and it is normal to have concerns about what you will be able to keep after the process is complete. Property division is one of the most difficult and emotionally charged issues in a divorce, and it can be useful to better understand the Kentucky laws regarding marital and non-marital property.

Overcoming the pain of divorce like Gwyneth Paltrow is possible

Even under the best of circumstances, overcoming the pain associated with ending a marriage can be a challenge, especially if children are involved. The bigger challenge for Kentucky couples, however, is moving past that pain to focus on what is truly important, which is working together as a team to make the transition of divorce as painless as possible for the children. According to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, that involves coming to some hard realizations even as the parties acknowledge their pain.
