On recordkeeping when alimony is awarded

In our last post, we talked about spousal maintenance and the important role that this serves in the world of Kentucky family law. Often called alimony, this form of financial support for one of the spouses in the wake of a divorce is calculated based on a number of different factors. But today we want to talk about what each spouse should do after spousal maintenance is awarded. There are significant records that need to be kept and maintained so that both spouses can utilize the spousal maintenance situation properly.

Understanding spousal maintenance in Kentucky

Spousal maintenance, also referred to as alimony or spousal support, is a monetary payment awarded to a former spouse after a marriage ends. The purpose of maintenance is to provide a former spouse with a standard of living post-marriage that is similar or equivalent to the standard of living experienced during the marriage. Maintenance can be awarded on a short or long term basis depending on the circumstances.

How out-of-state child custody decisions are made

Interstate custody disputes arise for various reasons. One parent may have a job offer in another state, wish to have a fresh start, military relocation or any number of other factors. The desire to move out-of-state from where the other parent lives with or without your child sets off legal questions and protocol to follow before this can be accomplished.
