Is my spouse having an emotional affair?

Infidelity in a marriage often leads to divorce as it indicates a significant betrayal of trust between spouses. However, affairs don't always need to be physical in nature to cause problems within a relationship. As explained by Very Well Mind, emotional affairs can be just as damaging to a marriage and may also lead to divorce if the issue isn't rectified.

Understand your rights on spending child support

At The Grinnell Firm, PSC, we know that there are many misconceptions that Kentucky residents hear after a child support order is made by the court. If you receive child support, your ex may have told you that you must give him or her receipts, or he or she may try to dictate how you spend the money. Family members and friends may inform you that you must report your spending to the court. Understandably, this information can give you a great deal of anxiety about how you spend child support.

Are you ready for a divorce?

Such a commitment is indeed possible, but it takes two to tango and sometimes your partner may be dancing to a much different tune.

Grounds for divorce in Kentucky

There may be any number of reasons why couples in Richmond choose to divorce. Yet as the laws regulating divorce have changed over the years, so too has the perception of the reasons why people separate. Most have likely heard the term "no-fault divorce" yet not have a strong understanding of what it means.

Handling stress over a family law issue

When two people decide that their marriage needs to come to an end, or one spouse has simply had enough and is determined to move on, many different challenges may lie ahead. These potential problems should not get in the way of a divorce when such a move is necessary, but it is smart to prepare nonetheless. Child support, property distribution and custody are just a few of the family law matters that some couples have to work through. Looking beyond the financial impact of divorce and post-divorce issues, other challenges can arise, such as high stress levels.

Former city council member's marriage is broken, says ex-wife

Many in Richmond may view the concepts of a "no-fault" divorce and grounds for divorce as being conflicting. Family courts do indeed require that a reason be given as to why a couple (or at least one member of a couple) wants a marriage to end. Yet in many cases, irreconcilable differences is cited as the reason. Irreconcilable differences indicate that a relationship is irretrievably broken, and that no amount of intervention will repair it. The no-fault concept comes into play in that no one party must be at fault for that breakdown.
