A collaborative divorce puts children first

Parents who choose to end their marriage often worry how their children will handle the emotional repercussions of a drawn-out courtroom battle. Fortunately, there is an alternative for parents who are less interested in casting blame and more interested in protecting their children from parental conflict.

One generation plans for divorce, one plans for marriage

Kentucky readers know that there are seemingly huge ideological and cultural differences between baby boomers and millennials. In addition to politics and a myriad of other differences, studies show that as more millennials reach the stage of life where many choose to marry, baby boomers are reaching a stage where many choose to divorce. In fact, studies indicate that approximately half of all marriages continue to end in divorce.

Co-parenting could be a beneficial child custody arrangement

For many Kentucky families, divorce is hardest on the youngest members of the family. For this reason, parents may work together on a child custody arrangement that is the least disruptive for the children. Co-parenting, while not the ideal solution for every situation, could be an beneficial solution for parents seeking to protect the best interests of the kids.

Should you seek spousal support during divorce?

If you are facing the end of a marriage, you likely have concerns over finances, both during and after the process is final. As Kentucky readers know, it is normal to have concerns about money during a divorce, especially if you did not work while you were married or you made significantly less money than your spouse. For this reason, many people choose to seek spousal support.

Avoiding complications in a high asset divorce

Divorce is a difficult process for couples of any income level, but it can be particularly complex for those who have substantial wealth. Many Kentucky couples see the benefit in a prenuptial agreement before marriage, which could eliminate certain complications in case of a high asset divorce. Nevertheless, having a prenuptial agreement in place is by no means an indication that a couple is planning to eventually divorce. 

Protecting financial interests in case of divorce

One of the most complicated aspects of a Kentucky divorce is navigating the financial issues. Money can sometimes be the source of contention during a marriage, and these issues can grow exponentially during the emotionally challenging process of divorce. Fortunately, there are ways that a couple can ensure that they never have to deal with a litigious battle over money.
