Divorce and Family Law
If you are considering a divorce, or cannot agree with your child's other parent about custody or child support, we are well aware of what a stressful time this is for you. Please let us explain the process to you, so you will be informed and know what to expect.
Divorce in Tennessee can be contested or uncontested.
Contested means you and your spouse do not agree as to the division or property and debts and or the plans for the future care and support of the children. Contested divorces are usually a fairly long process involving mediation and finally a trial if you cannot reach an agreement beforehand.
Uncontested means you and your spouse agree on how to divide the assets and the debts and you can agree as how to care for the children going forward. Uncontested divorces are relatively simple and generally just involve drawing up the agreement that you and your spouse will abide by along with all the other necessary paperwork.
Child custody matters as part of a divorce, or between unmarried parents, must either be agreed to between the parents or a judge will decide the children's schedule and support. I will help you find the best solution for you and your children and fight passionately for you should you not be able to come to an agreement with your children's other parent.
Please don't go into a divorce or family law problem on your own. Please let us explain the process to you. First consultations are free.
