Find out how Tennessee laws will impact a child custody case

In our previous blog post, we discussed how there are some points in the Tennessee family law system that are changing. New policies regarding child support are leaving some people wondering when the system is actually going to improve. We understand that dealing with these issues is sometimes very frustrating.

Child custody and support are evolving, but problems exist

People who are having to pay child support in Tennessee often have to deal with what feels like an uphill battle. This is something that some lawmakers are trying to rectify; however, the changes that are coming aren't being met with full acceptance. There are still many issues that need to be addressed and ironed out.

Child custody decisions have to be made for the children

Your child is your priority. He or she is also your ex's priority. Now, you and your ex have to work together to figure out a plan for how your child can build a meaningful relationship with both parents since you will no longer be living in the same home. This is an aspect of divorce that many parents find difficult to handle.

Working together to resolve child custody matters

Your children are accustomed to having both parents in the same home. When you and the other parent call it quits, your children have to get used to having parents who live in separate homes. This isn't always easy, but you and your ex can make things work if you are willing to put your child first.

Start planning for summer child custody and vacations

Summer vacation is almost here. That means taking your children on fun outings and vacation. If you and your child's other parent are divorced or separated, you need to start planning for your summer right away. Your first step is to review the child custody order to determine what it says about the summer months. This order likely has a lot of information about how you and your ex should plan the summer, such as what notifications must be made for vacations and similar points.

Child custody matters are difficult but you must resolve them

We discussed some of the factors that play a part in child custody cases in one of our recent blog posts. Of all of these factors, the most important is determining what is in the child's best interests. This is something that must be considered for each child in a case. If you have more than one child, each child must be considered individually.

Child custody cases are based on several factors

Child custody cases that go before a judge are often difficult for the parents. These cases put your child's future into someone else's hands. For the parents who have to go through this process, it can be very hard to think about what might happen. This is one of those times when the more you know, the better you might feel comes into the picture.
