A divorce affects a person’s life at every level. We understand the emotional impact and the stress created by the breakup of a marriage and work closely with our clients to ensure that the divorce process is as smooth as possible.
We understand that every divorce is different. We represent many clients in uncontested divorces – cases in which the parties can agree on all issues including alimony, child support and property division. We can work with you to prepare a fair and binding divorce settlement agreement or martial dissolution agreement ("MDA”) for court approval. Depending on where you live and whether you have minor children, your divorce may be approved without a hearing.
The Three Most Common Questions about Divorce in Tennessee.
Although no-fault divorce means different things in different states, in Tennessee, these are cases where the spouse that files the divorce petition alleges that there are “irreconcilable differences” as grounds for granting the divorce.
If you are not able to work out an agreement with your spouse regarding the terms of divorce, we can assist you in negotiating a settlement informally or through mediation. If and when all else fails, we can argue and represent your interest in divorce court. Whether your case is contested or you and your spouse can agree on decisions related to your property, debts, and parenting issues, the attorneys at Todd Moore PLC have the experience to handle it.
During our initial consultation, we will provide you with a general overview of the divorce process and answer any specific questions you have related to your situation. Regardless of how you decide to proceed, we believe it is important that you know your legal rights and responsibilities so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your family. We are committed to helping our clients through the difficult times that often arise during a divorce.
