Quality Family Law Representation “Because It Matters”

October 2018 Archives

Premarital cohabitation could be linked to divorce

The vast majority of Americans in Kentucky and across the country think that it is a good idea to live together before marriage. However, one study indicates that couples who move in together before getting married may be at a higher risk for divorce. Various studies in the past have indicated that couples who live together before marrying may be more likely to divorce, but some social scientists have speculated that the effect may decrease over time as premarital cohabitation becomes more socially accepted. However, this study indicates that people who lived together may actually be more likely to face marital difficulties.

Co-parenting after a divorce

Every year, many parents in Kentucky file for divorce. These separations often have major effects on families. However, parents who pay special attention to their children's needs can help their kids bounce back after the stress of separation.

How having more money could make a divorce more likely

When couples in Kentucky have similar credit scores, their relationship may also be more likely to last. This was one of the findings of research by the Federal Reserve Board. People with higher credit scores are also less likely to leave committed relationships. However, money can be a worry for many couples. A SunTrust Bank survey found 35 percent of respondents said it was the main issue in their marriage, and attorneys report that wealthier couples could be more likely to divorce.

Taking steps to prepare yourself for a child custody hearing

Making the decision to dissolve a relationship can be scary and intimidating, especially if you and the other party have children together. You may wish to shield the children from harm throughout the process, but no matter how you handle the situation, it will likely impact their lives, even if only temporarily.

Study suggests certain occupations may increase divorce risk

It's not unusual for stress related to work to be a factor that contributes to the end of a marriage in Kentucky. However, there's new research suggesting that certain occupations may result in workplace situations more likely to adversely affect marriages. A previous study on relationships and the availability of possible partners of the opposite sex found that men living in communities with higher populations of women were more likely to have shorter marriages. The more recent study focuses on gender ratios where people spend most of their day: at work.
