An overview of child custody arrangements

Tennessee parents who get a divorce must generally decide on how to share custody of their children. In some cases, parents may seek sole custody out of spite for a former partner. However, custody rulings are made based on what is in the best interests of the children. This means that a parent could have sole physical custody while sharing legal custody or share both physical and legal custody.

Learning how to positively co-parent following a divorce

Co-parenting after going through a divorce can be challenging, but raising a healthy and happy child should be the priority for both exes. Children often absorb quite a bit during a divorce, and any negativity that they experience could impact them for many years to come. With a little bit of planning and some patience, divorcees throughout Tennessee and the rest of the country can make sure that they raise happy, healthy and well-adjusted children.

Protect your art during your divorce with these tips

As an artist, your art is your life, your work and potentially your income. While each piece you create is special to you and you may believe that it only belongs to you, that's not really true when it comes to divorce. The reality is that anything you do, make, create or otherwise collect during your marriage is something that could potentially be divided in your divorce.

Co-parenting solutions are not without challenges

Family law judges in Tennessee and around the country consider the best interests of the child when making custody decisions, and most of the research in this area suggests that the children of divorce fare best when they have the opportunity to spend time with both of their parents. This means that co-parenting solutions are becoming increasingly common, but this type of arrangement requires all of the parties involved to make a concerted effort and remain committed to a common goal.

Compromise and practicality aid creation of co-parenting plans

Parents in Tennessee who are splitting up need to work out a co-parenting plan. Many challenges could emerge as two people decide how to divide custody and meet the physical and emotional needs of their children. The final custody agreement likely will not fit perfectly into either parent's life, but parents should focus on productive compromises to show children that both of their parents place a priority on their well-being.
