Using income to figure out child support

Misconceptions about how child support works often causes those who receive it to face unwanted scrutiny by the general public. In many cases, people assume that single mothers get too much money from child support payments. Tennessee residents might like to know more about how child support decisions are made.

Unmarried couples and home purchases may not always mix

It is not uncommon for Tennessee couples who haven't gotten married to choose to live together. Some do so as a prelude to an eventual wedding, while others might simply prefer to remain single. However, there are some aspects of such a relationship that could prove to be problematic down the road, and one of them involves buying a home together.

Property division in Tennessee divorce cases

One of the most hotly contested issues in many divorces is how the property and debts should be divided. While it is possible for spouses to make the determination of what to do with their property on their own, many couples are unable to reach amicable agreements on their own. This means that they will either need to try to negotiate agreements outside of court or allow the court to make the decision for them.

Child custody, visitation and the push for reform

When Tennessee couples who have children decide to divorce, they may believe that the mothers are likely to be given primary physical custody with the fathers having some form of visitation rights. Nationally, there has been a push to reform child custody laws in order to make custody and visitation decisions more equitable.
