What are common co-parenting issues you could face?

Continuing to parent with an ex-spouse after divorce is by no means easy. Being a parent is challenging enough and navigating parenting after a divorce can create even more complications.

Knowing about these challenges can help parents manage them better. So, here are some of the most common issues that divorced parents might run into while they get used to co-parenting. 

A closer look at your Miranda rights

Coined the "Miranda rights" from the 1966 Supreme Court Case, nearly everyone has heard the rights that the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides them.

However, hearing these rights and understanding them are two entirely different things. These rights are critical for anyone facing a criminal charge. So, here is a closer look at the Miranda rights and how they actually work.

Trial separations: Are they worth it?

When someone realizes that their marriage isn't working, their first question is often: What should I do now?

For some couples, it is increasingly common to attempt a trial separation. Unlike a legal separation, it is a temporary period where spouses spend time away from each other to decide how they should move forward. Here are a few things couples considering a trial separation should know:

Louisville backs off marijuana charges, will the rest of Kentucky?

The movement to legalize marijuana is gaining traction across the country. Many states are still hesitant to join that movement. However, several states are taking steps to decriminalize the substance. 

The city of Louisville began a similar effort last month. 

How can drivers help improve motorcycle safety?

In Kentucky, more than 100,000 people own motorcycles. That means that in the summer months, thousands of motorcyclists take to the roads along with other drivers.

However, more than 100 of those motorcyclists face the risk of being involved in a fatal collision on the road. Even more of them could face life-changing injuries in the event of an accident.

Understanding Kentucky's driver point system

You may not think of traffic offenses as serious charges. Overall, a single traffic ticket will not have a large impact on your life.

However, traffic offenses can have significant penalties when they build up on someone's driving record. Here is a quick overview of Kentucky's driver point system, and its hidden dangers.

How to tell the kids you are getting a divorce

Finally speaking the words "I want a divorce," can be frightening, but also a huge relief for many people. Discussing the prospect of a divorce can be emotionally overwhelming for both spouses.

However, telling the children can be even more so. Regardless of their age, talking to the children about divorce can be a complex conversation to navigate. Here are some tips on how to approach that difficult conversation

What is the process of disputing a will?

Losing a loved one is a devastating and painful experience. Unfortunately, on top of grieving, there are often many matters the surviving family members must attend to, from making funeral arrangements to participating in the probate process to administer their loved one's estate.

During the process of administering a will, it is possible that one or several family members might have reason to believe that there are problems with the will. If someone believes that there are significant issues in their loved one's will, it is possible to contest it. However, there are a few steps in the process to legally dispute a will. 

Pain and suffering are also costs of an injury accident

After an accident that leaves you with serious injuries, you may have a good idea of the financial cost. You can probably open the pile of envelopes that is growing on your dining room table and add up the charges from the hospital, surgeons, physicians, labs, pharmacies and others. You also know how many days of work you have missed, so it will be possible to figure out the financial loss in terms of income.

These are some of the economic damages you may be dealing with from an accident. You can also add the cost to repair or replace your vehicle, and other incidentals. But somehow, that doesn't account for everything you have lost. What about the sleepless nights, the depression or the hours spent in doctors' offices? Can you put a price on your suffering, pain and emotional distress?
