Uncontested divorce in Tennessee

Having decided to end a marriage in Tennessee, couples have two options:

  • Initiate contested dissolution. Sometimes divorce process becomes very difficult due to irresolvable disputes concerning such important matters as child custody and support, property division, or alimony. This process can be really devastating for both parties who have to spend a fortune on legal help and attend multiple court hearings wasting months on settling the disputes.
  • File for uncontested divorce. An uncontested dissolution is considered pretty simple because all issues are resolved between the spouses beforehand so that there is no need to hire attorneys to solve all the disputes in the court. What is more, you won’t have to be waiting for a dissolution for months.

Nonetheless, it’s still necessary to meet a number of requirements before choosing an uncontested dissolution option. One of the biggest problems associated with this kind of divorce is the filling process. There are a lot of documents you may need to fill, depending on your specific case. If you try to search for them on the Web, most likely, you will find outdated and incorrect ones which will be later rejected by the court. How to avoid such an unpleasant situation?

Getting a divorce in Tennessee with a child

Child custody and support are extremely important matters that have to be resolved before the dissolution of marriage can be finalized.

  • In Tennessee, parents have to develop a permanent parenting plan, where they will outline how they will care for a child after the divorce. It includes the distribution of responsibilities, schedule of visitations, and allocation of child support. Spouses also have to attend 4-hour parenting classes before the dissolution.
  • If the spouses cannot agree on the plan, they have to go to mediation, where a professional mediator helps them to make terms.
  • In the state, the court usually assigns the primary residential parent with whom the child will spend most of the time. However, there are a lot of factors that the judge takes into consideration while granting primary residential custody, such as parent’s income, household, relationship with the child, any history of abuse and neglect, etc.
  • If the child is older than 12 years, his or her preferences are taken into account.
  • In Tennessee, the primary residential parent usually receives child support from the second one.
