How Does Kentucky View Your Child Custody Plans?
On behalf of of Schaffner Family Law posted in child custody on Wednsday, July 12, 2017.
Here in Kentucky, like most other states, it is the best interests of the children that matter. Your and your spouse’s interests take a back seat to this concern. You and the court may be of the same mind on this point, but at the same time, you need to be sure that your plan is feasible for the two of you as well. Otherwise, it could be doomed before it begins.
Fortunately, the courts tend to favor you and your spouse creating a parenting plan that results in shared custody. Having as much time as possible with each parent is often seen as promoting the best interests of the children. Regardless of your marital relationship, you may also agree that the children need and love each of you. Your parenting plan provides this to the best of your ability while taking your schedules into consideration, as well as your living arrangements and other relevant factors.
Determining the best way to achieve this goal could require some assistance. An attorney may be able to provide you with assistance from third parties to help you with your plan. In addition, a child custody attorney can help you make sure that your parenting agreement complies with all current laws and will meet with the approval of the court.
