Paying for college after a divorce

Paying for college can be tough whether a student goes to a school in Kansas or outside of the state. It can be even harder to do after a divorce. In 2017-2018, the average cost for a year at a private school was $46,950. The cost to attend a public school for one year was $20,770 in 2017-2018, according to the College Board. However, it can be possible to provide a child with an education by planning for it in advance.

Kansas teen accused of DUI after driving recklessly

Following a hit-and-run collision on Jan. 12, a Kansas teen was accused by police of driving under the influence. The teen's pickup truck was heading north on a street in Cowley County when it struck a parked pickup truck on the same stretch of roadway. After the accident, the 17-year-old driver was taken into custody.

Securing father's rights in divorce

When parents in Kansas divorce, child custody is often a significant concern. Parents generally place a high priority on their relationships with their children, and they may be very concerned about losing these relationships after a divorce. Fathers, in particular, may have fears of being cut off from their kids.

The process of adopting a stepchild

Kansas residents generally have the ability to become the legal parent of their spouse's children. If the adoption becomes official, a stepparent is now legally and financially responsible for the child he or she adopted. The current noncustodial parent is no longer responsible for paying child support or otherwise obligated to provide for a son or daughter.
