Is support ordered in a military divorce not being paid?

Ending a marriage with a member of the Armed Forces involves dealing with numerous benefits and other issues that other Kentucky residents may not have to deal with in their proceedings. One of those issues is support orders. Each branch handles its members, providing adequate support in different ways. However, help may not be available if the service member is not paying support ordered in a military divorce in a civilian family court.

Can the kids be kept out of the divorce?

When parents in Kentucky decide to end their marriages, it may not be possible for them to completely shield their kids from the trauma of the process. However, it may be possible, and even necessary, to protect them from as much of the negativity that may accompany a divorce. Regardless of what happened to the marriage, the kids, especially the young ones, still love both parents.

Paternity suit filed against NBA player

Like most men here in Kentucky, Amar'e Stoudemire had no problem accepting that he was the father of a woman's child despite the fact that he was married to another woman when the child was conceived and born. He began providing for the child after he was told about her, which was not until after her birth. However, that did not stop the girl's mother from filing a paternity suit against the NBA player seeking permanent child support and a legal acknowledgement that Stoudemire is the father.

How much should the state interfere in child custody matters?

When a couple separates or divorces, it may be necessary to bring in the court to help determine with which parent the children will primarily live, when and how much visitation the other parent will have and other matters. Even though Kentucky parents in this position may not be fully satisfied with the child custody decisions made by the court, they asked for the court to make the ruling. So, at what point does the state's intervention in a family's lives cross the line?

What do summer vacation and divorce have in common?

Timing is what they have in common. After summer vacations are over, many Kentucky couples could decide that the time is right to divorce. Few parents want to announce a divorce before the family vacation, so many wait until they return, but before school starts. This also gives parents time to let their children get used to the idea since telling them as soon as possible could help prevent problems later.

What to do if you believe your child's other parent is an addict?

Getting divorced is typically difficult in more ways than one. If your situation is similar to many others in Kentucky, you may face various financial challenges during and after divorce, as well was emotional struggles and problems related to parenting. In fact, the latter is often a topic of contentious debate in family court, and some problems can get blown so out of proportion they seem impossible to resolve. When an extenuating factor exacerbates a particular issue, you may be wrought with stress and anxiety.
