Celebrities like Halle Berry no strangers to divorce problems

Kentucky couples who have married for any length of time understand what it's like when communication problems arise within a marriage. Some are able to resolve such issues with little fanfare. Others, however, never quite find their way back on track and decide, instead, to divorce.


Of all of the emotional child custody disputes that arise in the course of a family law case, many of the most troubling swirl around substance abuse, addiction and how to handle restoration during or after a period of rehabilitation. During the period of active addiction, truly awful things frequently occur - abuse, neglect, emotional manipulation and childhood exposure to very adult misbehavior and criminal concepts.  For most people who are suffering from addictive conditions, once courts intervene, all but the ones in their most extreme phases of denial will acknowledge that their parental involvement should be restricted (if not suspended altogether) while they get their lives on track.  What happens afterward is where the difficulties arise.

Many Kentucky spouses rely on their partners to handle all matters related to finances in marriage. Some whose marriages did not last later recognized this as a big mistake when they suddenly faced tremendous challenges negotiating high asset divorce.

Personal rights and best interests: Two main focuses of divorce

Whether you've been married for three or more decades, or have yet to reach your tenth anniversary, if you and your spouse have determined it's time to go your separate ways, you may be searching for answers to many questions. If you have never before gone through divorce, you might be worried about things like finances, property division or whether you will have full custody of your children. Kentucky law, as all other states, contains various guidelines regarding such matters.

What if a spouse refuses to play by property division rules?

It's no secret that divorce can be a very messy process. Many in Kentucky who have gone through it know how stressful and complicated it can be to end a marriage in court. From emotional turmoil to financial disagreements and problems regarding parenting plans, it's well and good to hope an agreeable settlement will be achieved in a timely manner, but it doesn't always turn out that way.
