Dealing with the legalities of divorce

For many Kentucky couples who decide they no longer want to be married, getting a divorce may be the right decision. In fact, it is actually easy to dissolve a marriage now than ever before. This is due to the change in divorce legalities over the last few decades.

Military careers and the divorce rate

The marriages of people in Kentucky who are in the military might be more vulnerable to divorce than the marriages of non-military couples according to a number of studies. For example, one career website examined census data and found that of the top 10 professions in which divorce by the age of 30 is most likely, three were military jobs. The number one profession with the highest likelihood is first-line enlisted military supervisors. Air weapons and tactical operations were the other two military professions that made the top 10.

Divorces include elements of unpredictability

Although Kentucky state laws guide divorce proceedings, no one can predict the final terms of a divorce settlement in its entirety. Filing for divorce begins a process that could include negotiations, compromises, and court rulings on matters of property division, child custody and spousal support. When former partners cannot come to legally acceptable terms privately, a family court will intervene and rulings depend on interpretations of factors like the best interests of the child and the opinions of judges.

Alcohol education and treatment program basics

When people are convicted of driving under the influence in a Kentucky courtroom, they might possibly be ordered to attend alcohol education or assessment and treatment as part of the sentencing arrangement. The amount of time they could be ordered to attend an education or treatment program could vary, depending upon any prior convictions.

3 types of field sobriety tests

With summer fully underway, there is no better time to break out the grill and enjoy the company of friends and family. You might have a few drinks, too, as you enjoy a relaxing evening. If you drive home, though, you might find yourself behind bars and facing charges of a DUI. According to the Center for Disease Control, between 1.4 and 2 percent of adults in Indiana and Kentucky admit to driving after they have drunk too much.

Divorce myths may lead to poor planning

Kentucky residents who want to get divorced might benefit from reviewing some of the common misconceptions about the process before they simply dive in. Experts say that many couples make mistakes due to their lack of understanding about how divorces work. For instance, some try to save money by getting a single lawyer to represent both spouses. In reality, however, such arrangements can end up with only one person receiving appropriate representation.

Deportation risks may prompt custody arrangements

Kentucky parents who are undocumented immigrants and who fear that they risk being deported may be interested in learning that adults in similar situations are using custody arrangements to keep their kids safe should the worst come to pass. For families whose children were born in the U.S. and thus have a right to be here even though their parents don't, preparing custody transfer paperwork is emerging as a potentially viable means of long-term protection.
