Getting the upper hand in the property division process

All divorces require that marital property is divided between spouses. Some states divide this marital property according to the legal theory of community property, meaning that both marital assets and marital debts get divided equally between spouses. Other states, including Tennessee, do not recognize the legal theory of community property and therefore divide property in a way that they deem to be equitable and fair.

An overview of alimony in Tennessee

The laws in place that govern different aspects of divorce vary between states. This is why it is important that you first decide which state you will be divorcing in (which will usually be the state in which you currently reside) before taking the time to learn more about the divorce process.

What must you do before relocating with your child?

Parents can't pick up and relocate with their children when they get a whim if they're separated or divorced from their child's other parent. Instead, they must go through the legal process to petition a Tennessee judge to relocate whenever they wish to move over 100 miles from where they currently live.

Financial impacts can come from a grey divorce

Going through a divorce at any age is a major change that requires you to make specific adjustments to your lifestyle. One of the primary reasons for this is that many individuals are going from a two-income household to a single-income household. This can be a big challenge for all age groups, but it might be especially troubling to senior citizens who are facing a divorce.

Help your child with their relationship with your ex

Dealing with their parents' divorce is something that's challenging for most children. They might worry about how they will be able to spend time with both adults. While this is easy in some cases, there are instances in which one parent might not be around as much as they'd like. This can make the situation difficult for children who were accustomed to having both parents around a lot.
