Shared parenting in Kentucky

A Kentucky law promoting shared parenting that went into effect earlier in 2017 could increase gender equality and family happiness. Nationwide, family courts have in the past skewed their physical custody decisions overwhelmingly toward mothers. The effects of this have kept women dependent on child support payments, limited their career opportunities because of constant child care duties and separated fathers from their children.

How people can protect themselves in divorce

Many Kentucky women who are going through a divorce earn significantly less than their husbands. On average, U.S. women still earn around 82 cents for every dollar that men do, and the financial setbacks that may accompany divorce can hit women particularly hard. After a divorce, the household income of women falls almost twice as much as men's does.

Why prenups are becoming more common

Kentucky residents might like to know about why the once taboo topic of prenuptial agreements is now becoming more commonplace. Since millennials are now more likely to marry older, they are also more likely to have careers, property and other assets when they finally decide to tie the knot. The desire to protect what one has built has led to couples to have frank discussions about prenups.

Who divorce mediation probably isn't for

Mediation may be an effective way for Kentucky couples to handle their divorce. However, for some, it may be easier to skip mediation and head straight to court. Skipping mediation may be best for individuals who aren't willing to negotiate in good faith and make concessions for the benefit of each other. The same is true for those who don't want to see things from the other person's point of view.

The different types of domestic abuse

At some point in their lives, many Kentucky residents experience some form of domestic violence when in relationships. The types can include physical domestic violence, sexual domestic violence, threatening domestic violence and emotional domestic violence. Each type of domestic violence has potentially devastating effects that could impact a person's ability to live a normal life after-the-fact.

Why a prenuptial agreement may be a good thing

While the thought of divorce before the couple has even walked down the aisle may seem confusing, a prenuptial agreement can be beneficial for both parties. Those who have built a business or who have other separate property may wish to protect it. However, Kentucky residents should be ready for friends or family members to question the need for such an arrangement.

Department of State steps in when children taken overseas

A parent of a child in Kentucky who was taken out of the country by the other parent needs to seek help from the U.S. Department of State. When a parent violates the custodial rights of the other parent by removing the child from the country, federal law has been broken. Statutes label the crime as international parental kidnapping, and a conviction could lead to a three-year prison sentence.

Traffic violations in addition to DWI

Driving while intoxicated may not be the only charge you are facing. Breaking traffic laws is likely what caused police to pull you over in the first place and discover your drunken state. Therefore, you probably have other traffic tickets to worry about. Do not dismiss them no matter how minor they may seem.
