Divorce and kids: sons and daughters process it differently

When parents come to the realization that a marriage is no longer viable, the emotional fallout impacts all family members. Research shows that sons and daughters process their emotions after a divorce differently. Kentucky parents who are going through the process may be able to help their children easier if they understand how boys and girls experience a divorce.

Mother works to change how child custody cases are handled

When parents decide to part ways, one of the most difficult decisions is how to best raise their children. In situations where it is appropriate, child custody will be decided in such a way that a child will spend time with both parents. Kentucky residents who are struggling to resolve these matters in the manner that will best serve their children may seek the advice of a neutral party.

Hoping for a conflict-free divorce? Consider collaboration

Many people expect to experience conflict and confrontation when going through divorce. Because you recently made the decision to end your marriage, you may worry about the proceedings and whether you will have to deal with a considerable amount of contention. If you have kids, you may feel particularly concerned about how to get through the process with as little strain for them as possible.

High asset divorce: Money doesn't always buy happiness

The old saying claims that the best things in life are free. Sadly, life itself can be expensive, and it requires a certain amount of capital to keep things running smoothly. While it may seem that more money may lead to marital bliss, some Kentucky couples may find that the higher income eventually leads to a high asset divorce.

Paternity test reportedly confirms Owne Wilson is a father again

Kentucky movie fans are likely familiar with the actor, Owen Wilson, and his roles in movies such as "Wedding Crashers" and the new movie, "Father Figures." On top of his many film credits, Wilson is reportedly now the father of a newborn girl. He has two sons by prior relationships. The actor purportedly volunteered to submit to paternity testing earlier this year that apparently confirmed he is the child's father. 

Shared child custody and support: How do you find a balance?

In the 1960s, it became commonplace for family court judges to award primary custody to a mother since most stayed at home to care for the kids. Times have changed and not only are many more women in the workforce, studies have shown that children fare best with a shared child custody agreement. Kentucky has passed a law that sets shared custody as the starting point in these negotiations.
