The factors that contribute to a lower divorce rate

While many Kentucky readers may believe that at least half of all marriages will end prematurely, recent statistics indicate that this may not be true for every age group. The overall divorce rate seems to be lowering, but this trend does not apply to middle-age and older generations. There are many factors that affect the divorce rate, from college education to life expectancy.

Talking To Children About Divorce

When dealing with the pain of a separation or divorce, parents sometimes get so mired in their own conflicts that they neglect doing things which are necessary to ease the transition for their children. Children's reactions to family dislocation can involve anxiety, self-blame for the separation or divorce, or poor performance at school. These factors can vary depending on the children's age, circumstances of the divorce and parents' psychological functioning, according to a new repor, published in November 2016 in the journal Pediatrics (as reported in Live Science. While Live Science suggested a somewhat low key set of involvements, our observations differ somewhat and require a more active ordering of priorities and therapies in order to address the natural byproducts of these breakups.

Divorce doesn't have to ruin the holidays

It is the beginning of the holiday season, and many Kentucky families are wondering how they will get through it -- not because of holiday cooking, shopping or decorating, but because this will be the first holiday season after the marriage ended. Whether a couple is still going through the divorce process or finalized their divorce earlier in the year, the holidays will put any agreements between the parties to the test. The holidays can still be a time of joy and celebration with some preparation and cooperation.

Holiday Schedules - the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Parenting time becomes especially fraught with discord at the holidays. Each parent wants to have the children for their extended family's holiday traditions during the earliest phases of litigation, and later, once new relationships are forged, parents want holiday schedules to mesh with those of their new significant other.

Should you consider a postnuptial agreement?

Many couples who marry young do not think about prenuptial agreements, because they do not have many assets. If a divorce occurs years later after accumulating wealth, however, a drawn-out, costly fight can occur.

The relationship between divorce and taxes

In the midst of the emotional and difficult process of ending a marriage, it can be difficult for a Kentucky reader to think about the long-term implications of certain financial decisions. It is easy to become wrapped up in feelings of anger and sadness, but these emotions can lead one to make decisions that are not actually beneficial for the future. When navigating divorce, practicality and future prosperity should be the driving forces behind major decisions, not emotion.

Dissipation of assets and high asset divorce

When a divorce involves valuable assets and other complicated financial matters, it can quickly become a contentious, difficult process. For a Kentucky couple facing a high asset divorce, it is important to prepare well and be aware of ways that the other party may attempt to undermine one's rightful claim to marital property. One of the most common ways that this occurs is by the dissipation of marital property.

Divorce and electronic information: What happens to it?

Kentucky readers know that the end of a marriage brings many complicated matters, most of which pertain to property division, child custody and money. In addition to these important things, it is also critical to consider what happens to one's personal information and online privacy in the event of a divorce. A recent high-profile case involving Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin and an FBI investigation has brought this important issue to national attention.
