Quality Family Law Representation “Because It Matters”

September 2018 Archives

Tips for older adults going through divorce

A 2012 study done by researchers in Kentucky found that divorce for people 50 and older had doubled since 1990, and researchers say several factors may account for this. Rising longevity, a shift in expectations about marital satisfaction and women's increased economic independence all play a part. Since second or third marriage are more than twice as likely to end in divorce, this may also be a factor.

Reasons to consider a prenuptial agreement

Soon-to-be spouses in Kentucky might want to consider getting a prenuptial agreement, particularly if they are part of a blended family, are marrying for a second time or own a business. A prenuptial agreement can protect a business owner from losing or having to share the business with an ex-spouse in the case of divorce.

Prenuptial agreements can benefit everyone

Asking your fiance for a prenup is not always easy. Although these documents are important family law tools, many people in Kentucky still view them in a negative light. For some, prenuptial agreements are a sign that their significant other does not have any faith in their upcoming nuptials. 

How co-parents can work together effectively

Almost anyone in Kentucky or anywhere else who shares in the responsibility of raising a child can be considered a co-parent. This can include biological parents, grandparents and foster parents. It can also include unmarried couples who had a child together. Those who are responsible for raising a child should keep the best interests of him or her as their top priority. Interactions with the child's other parent should be formal and businesslike.
