Divorce is a difficult process to go through in Kentucky under the best of circumstances. When children and the question of child custody are involved the process can become much more stressful and complex. Understanding the legal terms that applicable to custody decisions can help to clarify what is at stake and help to keep the best interest of the child at the forefront at all times.
Divorce is never easy and seldom entered into lightly in Kentucky, especially when young children are involved. While there are many issues that need to be settled and negotiated in a divorce, child custody can be one of the most challenging. It can be fraught with emotion, and the well-being of the children, which should be the first consideration, can get lost in the ensuing conversations. Understanding custody in a legal sense may be helpful.
One of the most complicated issues that you and your former spouse have dealt with after your divorce is your custody arrangement. Between work, your social life and other family obligations, maintaining the custody schedule has often been confusing. Now that a new schoolyear has started, your children will probably have academic and extracurricular activities that will complicate the schedule even more.
