Our Divorce Services
The divorce process can look quite different from family to family. For instance, a divorce in which the spouses agree on the terms of their agreement is often settled quicker than a divorce in which they disagree. Also, a divorce involving very little property is typically resolved easier than one containing many assets.
Our divorce attorneys offer assistance with a variety of divorce situations, including:
Our team can also help with matters related to child custody and modification of child custody and support. Regardless of the particular elements involved in your divorce, we are committed to helping you pursue the best possible outcome for you and your family.
Tennessee Divorce Residency Requirements
Tennessee law requires that you meet a residency requirement before you file for divorce - if you don't meet this requirement, your case may not be accepted or it may be dismissed. According to the law, the filing spouse must be a resident of Tennessee when the grounds for the divorce took place. If the grounds took place outside of Tennessee then one spouse must be a resident for at least six months before filing.
How Long Does a Divorce Take in Tennessee?
An uncontested, no-fault divorce generally takes anywhere from two to six months. If you don't have children, there is a 60-day cooling off period after your divorce has been filed. If you do have children, then the cooling off period is 90-days. A contested divorce, on the other hand, can last years - the average contested divorce typically lasts a year or more.
