Property and Financial Considerations
It is the goal of lawyer Joseph A. Livesay, Sr., to obtain the things that you are legally entitled to receive. Under Tennessee law, you must agree to a marital dissolution agreement to obtain an uncontested divorce. This agreement lays out all the terms of your divorce, not related to your children. Things you should consider before entering into an agreement with your spouse include:
- Alimony / Spousal Support
- Division of Property
- Modification of Court Orders
- Division of Retirement Benefits
Children and Divorces
Divorces involving children raise a host of other issues that you must consider. Under Tennessee law, when children are involved, parents must agree to a permanent parenting plan that sets forth issues concerning:
- Child Support
- Custody and Visitation
- Medical and Health Insurance
- Modification and Enforcement
