Is keeping the marital home in a Kentucky divorce a good idea?

Many Kentucky residents believe that their home is the most valuable asset they own. At first glance this may be true, but when things such as taxes, repairs and maintenance -- not to mention the mortgage loan payments -- are taken into consideration, that number can drop quickly. That may not necessarily mean anything right now, but in a divorce, the true value of the house could be crucial.

Establishing paternity gives you rights to your child

Did you and the mother of your child formally establish that you are the biological father at birth? If not, you have no legal rights to the child under Kentucky law if you and the mother were not married at the time of the birth. Unwed parents do not enjoy the same legal assumption regarding paternity as married couples do.

The choice of divorce attorney could make all the difference

Kentucky residents who are planning to end their marriages have many decisions ahead of them. One of them is to choose an attorney who will represent their interests and help them achieve the best divorce settlement possible. Even in an amicable divorce, the need for legal counsel does not go away.

When your spousal support just isn't enough

During your marriage, you stayed home to raise the kids or experienced a number of other circumstances that kept you away from the job force. This left you fully financially dependent on your spouse. There is nothing wrong with this; in fact, it is a situation in which many Kentucky residents find themselves. However, you got a divorce and you now find yourself struggling financially despite being awarded spousal support. What can you do?

The importance of parents in child custody matters

Many Kentucky parents would say that the most important job they will ever have is raising their kids. In a divorce, most parents want to do what they can to make the transition easier on their children. This is why the most important elements in any child custody matter are always the same, a loving mother and a loving father.
