What should you include in your parenting plan?

Parents facing a divorce may dread deciding on matters concerning their children. The uncertainty of the process to come can be overwhelming and you may fear how your time with your child will be affected, as well as how your child will adjust to the changes.

Tennessee courts favor preserving and promoting a child’s relationship with both parents whenever possible. Courts also recognize that a divorce or separation can be particularly hard on children. To ease the transition, a parenting plan can help to distinguish each parent’s responsibilities while prioritizing the needs, stability and future of their child.

Are you experiencing these signs of divorce?

The first few months of a new calendar year are often quiet and can be ripe for reflection and goal setting. The end of the previous year you may have had kids starting a new school year in the fall, there was busy holiday festivities and you spent time with family and friends. But now you may have the time to take a hard look at your marriage and wonder where you really want to be one year from now.

If this is happening to you, it likely means you are unsatisfied with your marriage and it may be time to turn your attention to divorce. Here are the common signs of what you may be experiencing that could be the precursor for divorce.

Navigating family issues with mediation

Problems within the family are always a challenge. There is the emotional pain of arguing with those you care about, as well as the added layer of having to fight for the outcome you need most. Tennessee is unique in how it resolves these issues, though. Our state prefers to employ mediation over taking someone to court.

If you are unfamiliar, mediation is a process in which two or more people with an issue sit down together and hash out their problem. Most family law issues are required to go through mediation before someone can be taken to court for one very good reason: mediation works.
