Uncontested Divorces

An uncontested divorce is one where both parties sign a marital dissolution agreement. This document states that both spouses agree to end the marriage and split all marital property 50/50. If minor children are involved, the agreement will also include a parenting plan. Uncontested divorces are much quicker and tend to be less expensive.

In the state of Tennessee, a divorce must be on file for 60 days if the parties do not have any minor children, and must remain on file for 90 days if minor children will be affected. A lawyer can still help you negotiate the terms of an uncontested divorce and move the process along at a quicker clip.

Advocating for You in Contested Divorces

Unfortunately, many divorces cannot be resolved without a few battles. In this case, we have your back.

Most divorce arguments revolve around:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Property division
  • Alimony or spousal support

It can be difficult to negotiate the split of a family-owned business, the amount of time each parent will spend with the children, who will take the family pet, or who gets the house. We will work hard to be a voice of reason and a calming presence as you talk through all of these points. It is our goal to arrive at a conclusion without taking your case to trial. This saves you time and money and reduces tension.
