Many times, we hear stories about how fathers wind up paying child support on children which are not genetically related to them. Ofttimes, this occurs from naivete, sometimes, by deliberate misrepresentation.
In matters of child custody and parenting time in divorces, Kentucky legislators and judges have a lot to say. There are statutes and judicial opinions addressing myriad issues of jurisdiction, of best interests, of factors to be used to determine what happens in modifications and what happens when someone relocates and leaves the immediate area in pursuit of new employment, new relationships or a plain fresh start. Sadly, in all of this material, there is very little said with regard to how to act as a parent.
