Tips for fair property division in a divorce

Property division negotiations between Kentucky couples who are getting a divorce may hold some financial pitfalls. For example, a couple may decide that one will take a 401(k) while the other will take a brokerage or checking account that has the same value. However, the person who takes the brokerage or checking account has a much more liquid asset than the person with the 401(k) because of penalties associated with withdrawals from the retirement account.

Dealing with a toxic spouse while getting a divorce

When some Kentucky couples decide to get a divorce, they are able to settle quickly and amicably. However, other couples are not able to do so, especially if one spouse has a high-conflict personality. These people often like to drag out court battles and create unnecessary arguments just because they thrive on this conflict. While having a spouse with a high-conflict personality may make the divorce more difficult, there are certain things people can do to make it less toxic.

A look at who may be most likely to divorce

According to data from the 2015 American Community Survey, those who have travel-intensive jobs or work in the nightlife industry are most likely to get a divorce. Conversely, those in Kentucky or elsewhere in the country are less likely to get divorced if they work as science or medical professionals. Additionally, the likelihood of a person getting divorced may also depend on how much he or she makes.

How divorced parents can give their kids structure

When Kentucky parents get divorced, they will still likely be required to maintain some sort of relationship while they continue to raise the children. However, effectively raising the children can be difficult when both parents decide to have a different set of house rules. This can be hard for the kids because they may become confused or never know what is expected of them.

Tips for co-parenting after divorce

Some divorced Kentucky parents of young children may have the challenge of dealing with a difficult former spouse. If the conflict is largely one that is between the two parents and does not involve issues such as addiction or abuse, there may be ways of reducing the conflict. Often, the conflict may be largely due to the turmoil of divorce and may work itself out over time. The first step is to keep the focus primarily on the well-being of the child.

Do's and don'ts of a DUI stop

You know you are not supposed to drink and drive. Maybe you made a dumb mistake or underestimated the effects a small quantity of alcohol had on you. Whatever the reason, what do you do when the police pull you over on suspicion of drunk driving?
