Children living at home while parents come and go after divorce

Many Kentucky readers are familiar with the term "empty nester," as it relates to parents whose children are all grown and moved out of their homes. However, some might not yet have heard about a new type of nesting that concerns couples with children who divorce. This new type of parenting plan is catching on in some areas, as one woman recently shared in The New York Times.

When a spouse dies during the divorce process

Of all things that happen in Kentucky this year, undoubtedly some instances will include married couples deciding to end their relationships. What happens after that will likely vary according to individual circumstances. However, most people who divorce have a few things in common, such as a need to adapt to new lifestyles and/or restructure their future financial or parenting plans.

Don't believe everything you hear after divorce

Developing  new parenting plans after marital ties are severed is a challenge many Kentucky adults must face. Divorce necessitates some major lifestyle changes, especially where children are involved. It's often the case that one parent will hear something about the other, either from a child, a relative or friend, and if he or she acts without first researching the situation to confirm the rumor, things can get pretty messy.

Alimony: A quick history lesson on why it exists

Spouses who are forced to pay alimony, and spouses who have the right to receive alimony tend to view the fairness of alimony in a very different light. This is natural. In a lot of marriages, the spouses don't part on good terms, and the last thing the so-called "moneyed" spouse wants to do is send a check to his or her ex on a monthly basis.

These options often help people considering divorce

Most married people in Kentucky remember at least one or more things that attracted them to their spouses before they wed. Reasons people marry vary almost as much as those cited when spouses file for divorce. Every couple's situation is different. Some are able to workout their differences and stay together.
