When going through a divorce, there may be an overwhelming amount of questions running through your mind, including:
- When will I see my children?
- How will I manage financially?
- Will I have to leave my home?
- How do we split our property?
We will help you find the right answers to resolve your divorce questions. Our staff works with you to determine the best course of action for your particular case involving your contested or uncontested divorce, including:
- Spousal support / alimony / maintenance
- Child custody / visitation / parenting Time
- Property division
- Marital debt
In Tennessee, if you are filing for divorce and have children, you are required to attend an approved parenting class as a condition to your divorce decree. We believe that coming to a mutual custody agreement with your spouse, rather than a prolonged battle, is a benefit to your children and will reflect better upon your parenting. We encourage you to seek a negotiated custody and visitation arrangement. We offer experienced custody mediation services.
In the state of Tennessee, child support is based on an income shares model. In deciding amounts, many factors are taken into consideration:
- Responsibility for daycare expenses
- Physical custody
- Financial accountability for insurance costs
- Parental responsibility for child-related bills
We will help you to prepare the proper documentation and ensure that your child's best interests are represented.
