How to meet the best interests of a child

In most cases, Kentucky parents and others who have been divorced should receive shared physical custody of their children. This is because it is often in the best interest of the child to do so. An exception may be made in the event that a parent is abusive or otherwise puts the child in danger. However, shared parenting may not be as prevalent as it should be because of myths that have been propagated over the years.

Trends show an increase in remarriages

Data collected by the Pew Research Center shows a dramatic shift in the American relationship and marriage landscape over the past few decades. More couples are opting to cohabitate before or instead of marriage, biracial marriages are more popular, public support for same-sex marriages and the number of those couples choosing to wed has increased, and more people are marrying partners of different faiths.

People in Kentucky who are getting a divorce may have several changes in their taxes. When a divorce is finalized by the last day of the calendar year, people must file their taxes separately for that year. If the couple remains separated but the divorce is not yet final, they can choose between married filing separately or filing jointly.
