Things To Know About Divorce In Tennessee

Tennessee law prioritizes “equitable distribution” – the fair division of assets between spouses in a divorce, though it’s important to note that “equitable” is not “equal” in all cases. What this means for you is that the terms of your divorce will decide how everything in your life is split, including:

  • The property you and your spouse own
  • The debt that you and your spouse acquired
  • The children and parental responsibilities that you and your spouse share
  • And more. 

If you and your spouse make extremely unequal amounts of income (for example, if one parent was a stay-at-home parent), then alimony may come into play during your divorce. If you have children, child support will also likely be a factor. 

Dividing your life in these ways won’t be easy, but it doesn’t have to be the messy or drawn-out process that many people envision! If you and your spouse can collaborate and work together amicably in order to settle these issues, you will save time, money, and stress, and ultimately will have more control over the foundation you set for your and your family’s future (as opposed to a judge who doesn’t know you, your history, or your goals having to decide for you). 

Why You Need A Murfreesboro Divorce Lawyer On Your Side

While working together is the smoothest path forward, sometimes it may seem impossible; divorce is a highly emotional, and often highly contentious, ordeal. You may be too overwhelmed by the sadness, fear, worry, anger, loneliness, or other emotions you may be feeling or too overwhelmed by conflict in order to see clearly and make strategic decisions. You may have no idea what it is that you are supposed to do, or what choices are even available to you under the law. 

Knowledge is power, which is why enlisting the assistance of a Murfreesboro divorce lawyer is a good idea. An attorney can take the time to listen to you and reassure you. They can explain all of the legal lingo in easy-to-understand language so you feel in the loop. They can provide the clarity and honest advice you need! They can guard you from being taken advantage of in negotiations or mediation, and if your divorce does end up needing to be settled in court, they can accompany and represent you. With quality legal guidance you can rely on, you won’t fall victim to common divorce pitfalls that you may otherwise have been tripped up by (or that may have jeopardized your happiness and financial security in the years to come).

Chris really helped us to understand how the estate planning process works. We feel very confident that we and our kids are taken care of and that everything that is supposed to happen with our assets will happen. Chris took all of the stress out of the process. I would recommend anyone work with Chris, even those who already have estate plans in place. Not all estate plans are equal.
