The Current State Of Kentucky Custody Laws

For decades, custody cases were a fight over which parent a child will live with and which parent will be forced to settle for visitation rights. That era is officially over in cases where there are two capable and willing parents.

Today, there is presumption that children will spend equal time with their mother and their father. This has made custody less contentious overall and helped to avoid some child support disputes that stemmed from lopsided custody schedules.

What hasn't changed? Parents still have strong feelings over how to divide up things like holidays and making sure they get equal time with their children during school breaks and other unique times of the year. It's also still important to make sure that any custody arrangement reflects the unique needs of the children and parents, especially the children.
