Women earn less making divorce more difficult

For Kentucky women, getting a divorce can have a major impact on their finances and retirement. In fact, the divorce may actually hit women harder than men due to the fact that women statistically get paid less than men and are often put in charge of caring for the children when they are still married.

Health insurance deductible concerns in divorce

One of the benefits commonly provided by employers could cause serious consequences for some marriages on the brink of divorce. Health care has always played a role in negotiations over custody, spousal support and property division, but the passage of the Affordable Care Act offered those with pre-existing conditions some amount of security. This law may soon be overturned and the prohibition against higher premiums for pre-existing conditions lifted. Some Kentucky couples have responded by showing more reluctance in untying the knot.

Using dispute resolution processes for child support decisions

Informal negotiation and alternative dispute resolution processes may be ways that Kentucky parents who are getting a divorce can work out child support without going to court.

Helping children cope when their parents are divorcing

The divorce process is often extremely difficult on former couples, especially if they have children.

While age still does appear to confer a measure of security for marriages in Kentucky, there is an upward trend of divorces during the senior years. So-called gray divorces are less likely to result in the family legal issues common among younger marriages, such as custody and visitation, but these splits often have serious consequences on finances. Gray divorces show a stronger statistical correlation to marriage history and retirement security than any other factor, according to studies.

Custody mistakes for parents to avoid

For Kentucky estranged parents, a divorce and associated child custody hearings can be emotional events. However, it is important for a parent to avoid making unforced errors such as talking about the case to a friend or otherwise being transparent about his or her legal strategy. Ideally, the only person parents will talk to during a child custody case is their lawyer.

Child custody modifications for disabled parents in Kentucky

It's common for one parent to end up with child support obligations after a divorce. Support obligations are based on the income of the parent in question. Therefore, if a person's income is reduced, they may be able to petition to have their payment obligations lowered.

Dealing with a family businesses in a divorce

Husband and wife entrepreneurial teams are not uncommon in Kentucky and around the country, but deciding how to divide business assets can become a contentious subject when these couples divorce.
