Coming out of a gray divorce with some financial security

Yes, it is possible. After relying on each other for decades for financial support, ending the marriage can cause a significant amount of stress regarding how to make ends meet after the divorce. With some planning and guidance, a Kentucky couple who falls into the "gray divorce" category could still come out of the process with some financial security.

Establishing paternity is essential for unwed parents

These days, many Kentucky couples decide that marriage might not be right for them. Making that choice might come with numerous advantages, but when it comes to children, it puts both parents at a disadvantage. Eventually, the issue of paternity will need to be addressed in order to protect the parents and the child. It is not enough to simply put a name on the birth certificate.

"Gray divorce" becoming more common among baby boomers

There has been a shift in marriage statistics regarding older Kentucky residents and others in the nation, according to a recent study by a research group that focuses on demographic trends. Adults over 50 years old are not necessarily following the traditional relationship norms they once did. The study, which addressed divorce and marriage trends, was based on data obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A transition plan can make co-parenting better for everyone

Parenting after a divorce can be complicated, even when two Kentucky parents work together to come to a beneficial resolution regarding complex issues, such as child custody and visitation. In order to avoid unnecessary complications and make things easier for children, parents often choose to co-parent or share joint custody.

Important facts about child custody in Kentucky

When most men and women become parents, the idea that they might one day end up in court fighting over their children likely never enters their minds. It is an unfortunate reality, however, that many couples, married or not, engage in a child custody dispute when the relationship turns sour. Since most parents entering such a dispute likely have no experience in this area, some basic information about custody in Kentucky may be useful.
