The benefits of a QDRO for divorcing spouses

Among the many things that divorcing spouses in Kentucky are commonly concerned about is the loss of precious assets. This is understandable because those assets deemed to be joint and part of the marital estate are frequently split in some fashion between both spouses when a marriage ends. One type of asset often included in the property division settlement is the 401K account.

Reviewing the process of parental relocation

Imagine being offered a job outside of Richmond that will require you to relocate with your kids. Or, picture getting a call from your ex-spouse saying that he or she wants to move to another state with your children.  Many of the past clients that we here at Shumate, Flaherty, Eubanks and Baechtold have worked with have faced both scenarios. They can tell you that before you make your move (or your ex-spouse makes his or hers), state law requires that certain procedures be followed.

Driving distracted: a dangerous choice

The issue of car crashes due to distracted driving is not only serious, but is one that is on the rise. Any amount of driving on public roads comes with some level of risk, and Kentucky in particular sees a significant number of crashes related to distraction of varying types. On top of unwanted expenses and car repairs, crashes can have dangerous and even fatal consequences that are often forgotten during day-to-day distractions.

Is more than just weather heating up on your summer break?

When you decided to divorce, you may or may not have thought ahead to various types of situations that may cause potential stress between you and your former spouse where your children are concerned. Like many Kentucky parents, there have probably been (and will most likely continue to be) times when you and your children's other parent disagree. In fact, summer break is often a season when tempers begin to burn and problems arise regarding visitation schedules.

What are some tips for handling chemicals safely?

For workers in Richmond who regularly encounter chemicals, knowing the proper procedures are of the utmost importance. Failure to do so can lead to grave injuries and may even inhibit one’s ability to hold gainful employment, which can result in a workers’ compensation claim.
