High asset divorce could be eased with pre-marital planning

A little planning can go a long way, especially when it comes to finances. When people make plans involving pre-marital financial matters, that usually means a prenuptial agreement. But one can make plans to keep non-marital property separate -- even in a high asset divorce -- with a little extra forethought. Kentucky residents may be able to utilize some of the suggestions shared in a recent news article. 

Using your child custody agreement to ease the transition

Are you getting a divorce? If so, you may have the same concerns that other Kentucky parents do regarding making the transition from one household to two as easy on your children as possible. Your child custody agreement may be a good place to start.

What seems to be behind the surge in gray divorce?

Starting life over again without a spouse after the age of 50 might seem like a frightening prospect, but that has not stopped numerous couples here in Kentucky and across the country from doing just that. In fact, so many have taken this leap of faith that the term "gray divorce" was coined to describe it. This may leave many people wondering what is behind this phenomenon.

Yes, establishing paternity matters

You have a child with your girlfriend. You know the baby is yours and you are ready to take on the responsibility of being a father. Unexpectedly, your significant other leaves you and takes the child with her. According to the laws of Kentucky, without establishing paternity you may not have any rights to your own child.

Should Kentucky couples consider collaborative divorce?

These days, many Kentucky couples shy away from the traditional courtroom battles still used in Hollywood movies for dramatic effect when marriages end. The cost, time and emotional toll this divorce process can have on a family makes it undesirable. This is why many couples now turn to other options such as divorce mediation or collaborative law to resolve their issues in a less contentious, time-consuming and expensive way.
