What should I know about parallel parenting?

Divorcing couples in Kentucky who share custody must work together to make major decisions regarding their children. When their relationships are contentious working together can be nearly impossible, and a failure to do so will impact their kids for many years going forward. In this case, parallel parenting may be a good solution for high-conflict relationships, as explained by Psychology Today.

Relocating with your kids

One of the most common questions that we here at The Grinnell Firm, PSC receive is whether divorced parents are able to move away from Richmond with their kids. Your reasons for contemplating such an action may be understandable; you may find an opportunity for employment elsewhere, or you may simply find that remaining in the same area recalls too many painful memories from your marriage. Whatever your reasons, you should first know that you are allowed to move away. However, taking your kids with you requires that you follow Kentucky's criteria for parental relocation. 

How can I prepare for my custody hearing?

If you’re divorcing in Richmond, you’re most likely concerned about being prepared for the subsequent custody hearing. Whether you’re filing for joint or sole custody, it’s crucial that you have your case in order to make a good impression on the judge, who will be making decisions based on the best interests of the child. In this event, VeryWellFamily.com offers the following information to ensure parents have the tools they need to effectively communicate their case in court.

What Is a Parenting Plan?

If you’re working through custody issues in Kentucky, you may be wondering what the best option is for your family. In most cases, divvying up parenting time proves to be in the best interest of the child at the center of the custody battle, although this can be a difficult process for many parents. Accordingly, The Washington Post explains the important role that parenting plans play for many divorced couples.

Most might be correct in assuming that a vast majority of custody cases involve children and their biological. There may be, however, times when a step-parent, foster parent, or even one who has yet to meet a child might step in and press for custody. While legal parentage is of course well-defined, the concept of "parent" can apply to anyone. Simply because one does not share a biological link with a child does not mean that he or she is less capable of rearing said child than the kid's biological parents

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.
