2 tax benefits divorce mediation could provide in 2018

Some Kentucky residents may believe that 2018 is flying by. As the month of June rapidly comes to a close, couples contemplating ending their marriages may be looking for a way to finalize their issues before the end of the year since some of the tax benefits that divorcing couples used to take advantage of disappear after Dec. 31. Using divorce mediation could help those couples come in under the wire instead of waiting for their cases to make it through the court system.

Property division law: When your 4-legged friend is in the middle

These days, many Kentucky couples decide they are not ready for children or just do not want to have them. Instead, they have one or more 4-legged friends they treat as children. If the marriage fails, deciding what happens to the family pet can be problematic, especially since the law still considers who gets the pet under property division laws, not custody laws.

Britney Spears to be deposed in child support modification request

When a Kentucky couple with children divorces, property division and custody issues are not the only ones decided. An amount of child support is ordinarily assessed against one parent. Since people's lives change over the years, the receiving parent may no longer believe the amount is adequate and may request a modification of the amount from the court. Kevin Federline has done this in connection with the amount of support he receives for the two children he has with Britney Spears.

Keeping finances in check with divorce mediation

Money is often a point of contention for married couples. At some point, most Kentucky couples disagree regarding finances, and some of those disagreements move into the courtroom during a divorce. One way to help keep finances in check when a marriage ends could be to use divorce mediation instead of battling it out in court.
