The number of divorced people in Kentucky is a little higher than the national average, but still pretty low -- 3.8 people per thousand. However, if you're preparing to get married and you or your spouse own a business, a prenuptial agreement can help ensure that the two of you don't go have to go through the expensive, lengthy process of determining how that business will be divided if you do eventually divorce.
You used to have a problem with alcohol. It was one of the things that led to your divorce. Now you've been sober for awhile. However, your co-parent wants conditions placed on your ability to see your kids -- including use of an alcohol monitoring system to prove that you don't have alcohol in your system around your visitation times. Maybe they're asking that you submit to regular testing, whether you have the kids or not, to show that you're no longer drinking to have visitation or shared custody rights.
Nearly 80 percent of divorcing couples say that financial problems played at least some role in their break-ups. That's according to a study by Experian from last year. However, another study found that only 2 percent of married couples have prenuptial agreements. One attorney notes that they're even less common among people getting remarried, even though they often have more to protect, such as children from their previous marriages.
Parental divorce requires a multitude of transitions for kids. They may have to move to a new home or even a new town and new school. They may see one of their parents very little or almost never. Depending on how their parents divide custody of the kids, they may even no longer be living with their siblings.
Did you know that getting a divorce in 2019 could be incredibly expensive?
After a court hands down a custody order, one or both parents may find that the plan simply is not compatible with their lives or the needs of their child. In some cases, one parent may feel quite satisfied with the order, while the other parent feels that the terms of the order are grossly unfair or does not allow for the flexibility that they need to remain working and keep other affairs in order.
If you or anyone you know has gone through a child custody battle, you know just how difficult it can be for parents to remain objective and fair when it comes to retaining parental rights and custody of a child. In some cases, parents may find themselves so at odds during the divorce process that courts hand down a fixed visitation schedule to a parent. In almost all cases, this order applies to the parent who does not receive primary custody.
When a couple chooses to create a prenuptial agreement, one of its clear objectives is to simplify a potential divorce so that the spouses do not waste time and resources haggling over the specifics. However, some prenups are not entirely fair in their terms, or may have other weaknesses that may not hold up in court. If you see divorce at the door and have concerns about the terms of your prenup, you may have grounds to challenge it. Challenges to prenups generally fall into two categories.
If you are like most parents who share custody of a child, you probably find that your custody order is not very convenient, at least some of the time. The realities of juggling work responsibilities, parenting privileges and duties, and other demands on our time can make sticking to a custody order annoying at the very least, and often leads to one or both parents operating outside of the custody schedule.
It is common for parents to disagree strongly about where a child should be or what they should do. When parents are married, courts generally don't get involved in these disagreements unless a particular course of action poses a threat to the safety of the child. However, when parents are divorced and must abide by a custody order, the court is much more likely to get involved.
