How are child support payments determined in Tennessee?

The tensions that may still exist between you and your ex-spouse following your divorce in Bartlett might make it easy to suspect that he or she will try to somehow punish you by asking for an inordinate amount of child support. Fortunately, it is the state that determines your child support obligation. Tennessee follows the "income shares" model when it comes to the payment of child support, which means that payments are calculated based off two factors: yours and your ex-spouse's net incomes and the number of children you have. 

Alimony is a big part of many divorces

When two spouses decide that it is time to end their marriage (and thus file for divorce), there will be many issues that they have to work out to ultimately conclude their divorce proceedings. Signing that divorce agreement will be freeing, but it takes some work to get there. Even after the agreement is signed, there will be post-divorce issues you have to work out.

How can mediation help my divorce?

A common perception of divorce is that it pits two parties against one another in a win-or-lose-all battle. While there are certainly divorces that end this way, they don’t have to be so combative.
