Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Divorce

I'm thinking about divorce. What do I do first?
If you are considering divorce, we strongly recommend that you speak with our professional Nashville divorce attorney s as soon as possible. Every divorce is unique. We want to patiently and graciously help you to work through your case in a professional manner. We will need to speak with you and determine how you want to go about your case before we can start filling out the paperwork.

What are my options for divorce?
When it comes to divorce, Nashville residents have two paths they can take. The first is contested divorce and the second is uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both spouses work together to amicably arrive at conclusions about the terms for dissolution of the marriage. In a contested divorce, the spouses will battle these terms in court and the decision will be made by a judge.

Who will get custody of the children?
If you choose an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse may be able to arrange a custody plan together that works best for both of you. If you choose to go with a contested divorce, you will need to argue that you should be the primary custodian, as this is in the best interests of the children. Our team can help you argue this in court. The judges are not permitted to make decisions on custody based on gender, so both parents have a fair chance of earning custody.

I'm in the military. Are these types of divorce cases handled differently?
Military cases are handled differently than civilian divorce cases. At Martin Sir & Associates, we understand how to work through military cases in Tennessee. There are special laws according to the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA) that will affect how property is divided in these cases. Military spouses cannot be forced to pay more than 60% of their income and allowances in child support or alimony.

I'm a grandparent and my child is getting divorced. Do I have rights to see my grandkids?
Grandparents often form a close bond with their grandkids, and this bond can be jeopardized by a divorce. If you are a grandparent worried about the future of your relationship with your grandkids, we encourage you to speak with an attorney at our firm. We have a special focus on grandparents' rights and may be able to enforce visitation so that you can maintain a relationship with your loved ones.
