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.
One thing that we can’t do is promise you that everything is going to be fixed soon. There are numerous things that need to be address when it comes to child support and custody. This means that we just have to deal with the system as it is now and enjoy positive changes as they come.
If you are in the middle of a child custody or support case, the most important thing you can do is to find someone who is familiar with the most current laws that will impact your case. You can then find out how those laws will impact your case so you can plan accordingly.
We understand that child support and custody cases are very personal. You want your child’s needs to be met and you probably don’t want to have to answer to anyone about how you are doing that. Your ex likely feels the same way, which can make the case complicated if your ideas and your ex’s ideas aren’t the same.
As you make decisions about your case, make sure you consider how each one will impact your child. After all, your child’s welfare is the most important thing in these cases. We can help you to evaluate the options for each decision so that you can determine how they might affect you and your child in the future.
