Divorce as a Consequence of Life

In the movies, the prevailing story arc bends toward successful resolution of conflict, usually between "diamonds in the rough".  Epiphanies occur, differences get patched, circumstances are dealt with and everyone goes on to live in some configuration of happily ever after, full of love and mutual respect.

Your Divorce, Your Taxes

Divorce always raises issues of the treatment of taxes. In most cases, one spouse will have assumed the responsibility for preparation of household financial documents and continues on with the chore out of habit, but sadly, with the shattering of the trust that comes about from the end of a marriage there also comes a reluctance to cooperate.

Kentucky Divorces - Increasing or Decreasing?

A recent article on divorce in the New York Times analyzed raw data on the number of divorces occurring nationally, and despite common perceptions about huge divorce rates, concluded that the numbers have declined over the past several years.

Kentucky Family Law on Private Education and College Expenses

A family law question which frequently arises in my office is whether someone can be ordered to pay the costs of private (usually religious) education as a portion of child support, and whether Kentucky will require someone to pay college expenses.  My usual answer is simple - in the absence of a written agreement, on a general basis, payment for private education won't be required unless there are some special educational circumstances involving specific learning difficulties and a professional recommendation advocating attendance at a specific private school.  

Property Division in Divorce - Make Your List Thorough

In all divorces (particularly those in "high value" cases), people tend to focus on the major investments when they engage in property division. Home equity, investment accounts, retirement accounts, interests in closely held businesses and valuable collections seldom escape notice; with these items, marital division or restoration as a non-marital asset is an inevitability.

Divorce and Estate Planning

A divorce has a profound effect on a couple's estate plan in Kentucky law.  While there is no legal effect up until the entry of a decree of dissolution, once that decree is entered, any disbursements or powers granted to the other party to the dissolution by will are treated as if that party died on the date of the decree.

Taxes and Divorce in Kentucky

In my divorce practice, I frequently see questions of taxation arise.  All too often, one spouse will have been the long time preparer of household financial documents and expects to continue on with the chore out of habit, but with the shattering of the trust that comes about from the end of a marriage there also comes a reluctance to cooperate.

Winter Holidays and Child Custody in Kentucky

The Winter Holidays, while usually a time of great joy, can bring about major stress in a child custody case.  Depending on the ages of the children involved, this can result in conflicts as to items as mundane as where the little ones wake up on Christmas morning to substantive issues of travel to far-flung ski or tropical destinations.

Civility and Divorce - a Primer

OK, so life didn't work out as planned, you're getting a divorce (or if unmarried, you are splitting up a household), and you are feeling  enthusiasm over the fact that you are no longer going to have to live with your significant other as a lover.
