Child Custody

Types of child custody include legal custody and physical custody. Tennessee law describes legal custody as the final decision-making authority. Physical custody defines where the child resides.

Either sole or joint custody, as well as mixed custody arrangements, shall be awarded on a case-by-case basis, depending on what would be in the child's best interests.

In a divorce with minor children involved, Tennessee courts consider the child's attachment to the current home, school, and community, each spouse's parenting skills, willingness to cooperate, and the ability to provide for the child's education, food, shelter, medical care, etc., the mental and physical health of all parties involved, and any other factors and circumstances the court may deem important.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Tennessee-based company. So that's why I used TennesseeOnlineDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found tennesseeonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
