Divorce mediation could help ease the trauma for children

No matter how much Kentucky parents attempt to shield their children from the breakup of a marriage, it will affect them. Each child deals with the situation differently, but each also goes through some degree of trauma when their parents go their separate ways. Divorce mediation may help ease the inevitable transitions coming in the near future.

Make property division easier with a prenuptial agreement

Kentucky residents get married for love, but that does not mean that a certain business element does not exist. A marriage is a legal partnership of sorts, and as such, it may be a good idea to put a contract into place. This contract, or prenuptial agreement, could make property division easier in the event of a divorce.

It may help to take these steps prior to divorce mediation

Even though you and your future ex-spouse agreed to keep things friendly as you end your marriage, you may still want to make sure that you receive a fair and equitable settlement. You may believe that divorce mediation will accomplish that goal by itself. However, without taking certain steps prior to beginning negotiations, you could still end up losing out on receiving everything to which you may be entitled under Kentucky law.

During a marriage, most Kentucky couples pool their resources in order to make a good life together. They may use the separate assets they bring to the marriage for that to happen. When facing a high asset divorce, this fact plays a crucial role in how assets are divided.
