Divorce/ dissolution of marriage

Our legal resources and expertise qualify us to handle even the most complex divorce issues, including military divorce, collaborative divorces, and high net worth divorce in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Child custody and visitation
After a legal separation, the court can designate one party the custodial rights of the children. If you are rendered as a non-custodial parent, you will have the child in your care in a specific period for visitation. The courts can also order joint custody where you both have access to the children for an equal amount of time. If a dispute concerning child custody and visitation arises, our attorneys will aggressively defend your rights. We will help you protect your rights in parental actions and divorce. We boast of vast expertise in both family court and juvenile court, and we are skilled at advocating for your custody rights and your child’s rights.
In divorce and child custody cases, the court decides each party’s financial responsibility for the child. Based on each parent’s finances, the court determines the amount of money paid by one parent to the other and a binding schedule for the payments. Our attorneys will advocate for the child support agreement that is fair depending on your earnings. We will also fight to ensure that your child receives the lawful amount of child support as directed by the court.
Adoption legal services
Legal adoption and foster care assign legal rights to an individual to take over a child’s parental duties and responsibilities. Our lawyers handle all legal matters relating to step-parent adoptions, surrogacy, relative and foster parent adoptions, and single parent adoption.
Family and civil mediation
We will represent you in all disputes related to real estate, landlord, and tenants, breaches of contracts, property damage, non-payment of bills and loans, contested, and more. Our lawyers can also handle appeals of civil, criminal, and family law cases. Additionally, our attorneys can also help you draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements designed to protect your interests.
