Is there any way that I can adopt my stepchildren?

If you marry a person who is a parent, you may reach a point where you wish to adopt your stepkids. Stepparent adoption can be a beautiful way to grow your Kentucky family, but there could be certain roadblocks standing between you and your ultimate objective. If you are looking to formalize and legally establish your relationship with your stepkids, you would be wise to seek a full understanding of your options.

When seeking a military divorce, experience and knowledge matter

There are some momentous decisions that require a strong commitment and resolve to follow through. One of these decisions is the desire to sign up for a stint in the armed forces in order to serve one's country, and the other is the decision to enter into a marriage. Unfortunately, as many Kentucky residents are aware, many marriages will not survive in spite of one's best efforts, and the process of obtaining a military divorce may require patience and skilled assistance.

Figuring out child custody is most important matter in divorce

There are many matters that may need to be considered when a couple is contemplating a divorce. While many are important, if the couple have children, then determining how to settle at least temporary child custody is of the utmost importance. Just like every other state, Kentucky has its own laws that will guide a court in making these determinations.

Kentucky encouarges unwed fathers to legally claim paternity

Many years ago, it was considered taboo for a woman to have a child without being married to the baby's father. However, it is now an accepted part of normal family life, though states have devised laws that dictate how a biological father can legally establish paternity of his child regardless of marital status. Kentucky is no exception, and it has created an avenue for men to seek legal recognition as a child's father.

A divorce can be letting go, not giving up

Every engaged couple hopes for the best when they decide to say the vows that are meant to join them for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, life can take many twists, and the "I do" may become an "I cannot." Regardless of what may have changed, many Kentucky families may have learned that a divorce is not always an end, but possibly a beginning.
