Contempt identified as the harbinger of marital doom

Divorcing couples in Kentucky and around the country sometimes find it difficult to identify the moment when their marriages became unredeemable. However, an expert on the subject claims that relationships become unsalvageable when spouses develop contempt for one another and lose sight of the qualities that led them to fall in love in the first place. Dr. John Gottman, who has written bestselling books about marital woes, came to this conclusion after observing thousands of married couples struggle to save their relationships.

How to create a financial plan after a divorce

Kentucky residents who are ending their marriages have to create a plan that meets multiple financial objectives. At the same that they are funding their divorces, it is also necessary to create a financial plan for life afterwards. Ideally, both parties will review their finances prior to signing off on the divorce settlement. During this review, individuals should get a better picture of their income and expenses as well as any assets that may be retained going forward.

When two parents do not agree on how to divide child custody, it can bring out a lot of emotions on both sides. The decision falls on a judge, who has to consider what is best for the child. This can feel unfair to parents who feel a court doesn't fully know the dynamics of their family.

Kentucky repeat DUI offenders face tough penalties

If you live in Kentucky, received a conviction for driving under the influence in the past and are now facing a new DUI charge, know that harsher penalties may be in your future. The Supreme Court of Kentucky recently upheld a law passed last year extending the period of time prosecutors can look back on when determining future DUI penalties.

Digital spying can be a new threat during divorce

The era of smartphones, social media and other technological advances can change the way that Kentucky couples think about and plan for divorce. Concerns about rumors, hacking, catfishing or the use of screenshots in court are common in media reporting and advice columns. These concerns can be even stronger when the reason for the end of the marriage involved controlling behaviors or other kinds of abuse, especially as devices like GPS trackers and technologies like smartphone apps can make electronic spying and stalking a reality with relative ease.

Modifying a custody agreement

One of the most critical aspects of a divorce involving children is deciding child custody. Though a custody agreement may work at first, circumstances may change that make new arrangements a necessity.
