Going through a divorce is, naturally, a challenging time. The effects that a divorce can have are long-lasting and each decision make throughout should be done with understanding of the consequences and with the advice of counsel. Our office can help you navigate the specific issues of your case, including:

  • Alimony/Spousal Support - There are four types of alimony that can be awarded in Tennessee. We can help you obtain an award of alimony or defend against a spouse attempting to get alimony.

  • Division of Real Property - The division of your home and land can be one of the most difficult. Understanding the difference in separate property and marital property, as well as obtaining an appraisal to understand the equity you may have in a home, are important items we can explain and assist you with.

  • Division of Personal Property - This can include your personal belongings, vehicles, and pets.  This also includes large monetary assets such as bank accounts, retirement accounts, stocks, investment accounts, and cryptocurrency.  

  • Child Custody and Child Support - Divorces in Tennessee require that a Parenting Plan be entered outlining a visitation schedule and setting child support. Let us help you make sure this document is drafted thoroughly and correctly to protect you from the headache of additional litigation in the future.

These are the most common issues in divorce, but others can and often do arise.
